6mm .243 Caliber (.243) 70 gr. HPBT Match

Designed specifically for record-breaking accuracy, the 70 grain MatchKing quickly established itself as the bullet to beat in High Power competitions out to 400 yards. So well, in fact, that it is the only bullet offered in the famous 6mm PPC factory load. With Sierra's traditional precision designed in the #1505 HPBT gained wide and immediate acceptance. Though not specifically recommended for this purpose, it is widely used by varmint hunters.

 

In handguns chambering 6mm cartridges, the 70 grain #1505 MatchKing bullet, which was designed as a bench rest bullet, is suitable for targets out to medium range. This bullet has the famous MatchKing qualities of precise concentricity and uniformity, and it delivers incredible accuracy. This bullet is an excellent choice for the NRA half-size silhouettes.

Although they are recognized around the world for record-setting accuracy, MatchKing bullets are not recommended for hunting. Widely favored for their extreme accuracy, these bullets have been used for short-range varminting. Having heavier jackets, they will not provide the explosive expansion of the lightly jacketed Hornet or Blitz bullets at equivalent velocities in small varmints. If used for varmint shooting, ranges should be kept short to ensure precise shot placement.
