.30 Caliber/7.62mm (.308) 175 gr. HPBT MatchKing
MatchKings® are the pride of the Sierra bullet family, unmatched worldwide and truly world class in all respects. Competitive shooters have relied on the consistent accuracy of Sierra's MatchKings® for decades, resulting in a history of state, national and world records that is the envy of our competitors.
In 1995, Sierra worked with military ordnance experts to produce a superior long-range bullet for the M21, M24 and M40A1 sniper systems. The result was the new 175 grain #2275 MatchKing® bullet. This bullet has also generated considerable interest among competitive Service Rifle match shooters. A higher ballistic coefficient compared to the 168 grain bullet (#2200) allows it to remain supersonic at 1000 yards when fired from 308/7.62mm caliber Service Rifles.
Sierra MatchKing® bullets have set the standards worldwide for consistent accuracy in handguns as well as rifles. Since the introduction of the high performance Remington XP-100 and similar handguns chambering larger rifle cartridges, all 30 caliber MatchKings® have been used in handgun silhouettes and long-range target competitions. Sierra's famous MatchKing® design assures superb accuracy, flat trajectory, and high momentum delivery with low sensitivity to crosswinds at all ranges.
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 design will not provide the same reliable explosive expansion at equivalent velocities in varmints compared to their lightly jacketed Hornet, Blitz or Varminter counterparts.

|These beautiful projectiles are no secret to loaders for M-14 type rifles. If you want to make hits at 1000 then use what the military uses to do it. These bullets are far more accurate than me, and have helped our troops keep us safe for quite a few years now.|

|R.C. Allison here and I'm a Sierra 175gr. MatchKing believer. My custom built M40-700 Remington in .308 Winchester has delivered the pinpoint goods with over 2000 rounds of Sierra 175 ordnance. The maximum effective range is well over 1000yds. Shooter's Choice and Best regards, ROYCE C. ALLISON|

|Have a basic bolt action 06 with this bullet I tired of cutting bullet holes at 100 yards an at 600 get at the most a 6 inch 5 shot group . Tried all the other brands an they don't do what a Sierra bullet will do no where close to them.|

|Have been using these in my .308 F-Class rig with great success at 500/600/1000 yard shoots|
||Ron S of Phoenix, Arizona||August 15, 2013|
|Great for long range; Performs best in .30-06 and up. A bit much (in my opinion) for the .308.|
||Mike L of Olathe, Kansas||August 15, 2013|
|This bullet has been my #1 choice for long-distance (1,000 yard) match shooting for over a decade!|
