.270 Caliber (.277) 135 gr. HPBT MatchKing
This 135 grain MatchKing® bullet #1833 is the heaviest match grade bullet currently available in Sierra's line in 270 caliber. Designed for long-range accuracy, a long ogive point with small meplat and a boat tail shape give this bullet outstanding "low drag" characteristics in this caliber for maximum efficiency at extreme ranges. This bullet is appropriate for the 270 Winchester, 270 Weatherby Magnum, and the 270 Winchester Short Magnum.
While they are recognized around the world for record-setting accuracy, MatchKing® and Tipped MatchKing® bullets are not recommended for most hunting applications. Although MatchKing® and Tipped MatchKing® bullets are commonly used for varmint hunting, their heavier jackets will not provide the same reliable explosive expansion at equivalent velocities in varmints compared to their lightly jacketed Hornet, Blitz or Varminter counterparts.

|Makes my 270 a very competent competing rifle that turns some heads. I absolutely love it! I do hope Sierra would make a 150gr HPBT Match in the future|

|Very accurate/concentric bullet. There are some runs from others that are good, but sierra consistently makes top quality.|
