Developed in 1964 the 223 Remington was designed to give the military a lighter, faster, and lower recoil round than the soldiers had been using previously. Today, the 223 Rem is used for hunting, range training, match competing, and self defense, giving you a multi purpose cartridge for a variety of shooting applications.
Sierra has been around since 1947 and has a reputation for producing extremely consistent projectiles that shooters and hunters have come to love. Whether you are looking for hunting, self defense, or match shooting bullets, Sierra has purpose built options that perform reliably.
These MatchKing hollow point boat tail projectiles weigh in at 80 grains and are recommended for barrels with a 1-7" or 1-8" twist. These bullets are designed to deliver pinpoint accuracy for match and long range shooting applications. Although these projectiles are hollow points, Sierra does not recommend the MatchKing line for hunting applications.
