The MatchKing is Sierra’s preeminent competition bullet, which has won more matches than all other manufacturers’ bullets – combined. It achieves this with the aid of its match jacket, which is drawn within a concentricity standard of ±0.0003”, as well as its weight which is held within a standard of ±0.3 grains. The MatchKing’s uniform dimensions are further complemented by its form-fitting lead core, as well as its boat tail which enhances its G1 ballistic coefficient to 0.600. By our math this round’s velocity shouldn’t become subsonic until 1,370 yards!
