7 mm/.284 Caliber (.284) 168 gr. HPBT MatchKing
The 168 grain #1930 bullet has a large following in rifle silhouette competition, especially for rams. This bullet excels at long ranges (600-1000 yards). It has set numerous records in nearly all types of long-range rifle competition.
In handguns, this bullet has been used widely for handgun silhouettes and other target competitions. They deliver outstanding accuracy, high momentum downrange, and low sensitivity to crosswinds.
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.

|I've been a Berger 168 VLD hand loader for years. When my local shop didn't have anymore Bergers in stock, I "had" to try the Sierra 168 SMK as that's all they had left. Boy was I glad! My groups tightened up on a consistent basis with a little tweaking on my charge load. I'll stay with Sierra for now - but finding them hard to locate now. Guess I just got lucky that time!|

|I use this bullet exclusively for my Target / Tactical shooting in my custom Rem 700 LA. I've made shots from 50 to over 900 yards with nothing but "in the bulls eye" accuracy. Of course, I have to "dope the scope" to get my long range shots on target, but when all is said and done, I will use only Sierra in my Tactical rifle.|
