This is a match load – all about long-distance precision, and not designed for self-defense or hunting. The heavy 77 grain bullet’s superior momentum allows it to shrug aside wind deflection, but its design is what makes it truly impressive. The Tipped MatchKing by Sierra features what is essentially perfect jacket concentricity – just what rotational stability can’t come into existence without. Instead of a hollow point, the bullet ends in a sharp acetyl resin tip that pierces a straight path through the air. The TMK’s ogive dimensions are enhanced to give it higher ballistic efficiency than its predecessor the MatchKing, so you can expect even tighter groupings at any range you’re comfortable firing over.
