.22 Caliber (.224) 80 gr. HPBT MatchKing

Sierra MatchKing BulletsDesigned for Service Rifle competition in the M16A2/AR-15A2, our 22 caliber bullets have set an incredible number of new national records.  With the introduction of the 80 grain #9390, the M16 family of rifles really became a force to be reckoned with in National Match competition. Because of its extreme length, the 80 grain MatchKing® requires a twist rate not slower than 1x8 inches. However, it must be seated to an OAL that requires single loading in the M16/AR-15 series.

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.

This bullet requires a barrel twist rate of 1x8” or faster.

Has been some years since my original review and still yet to find a fault with the 80SMK's Box to box consistency is unmatched by "Any" other brand I have tried and the accuracy is bang on the money. I can reliably set my load without the need to re-test and to push them through a barrel of more than 1000 shots old I just increase my load by 0.1gn...

Forget spending hours at the range testing this bullet and that just buy these and you will never look back... They are that consistent that I no longer measure of weigh them.
