.25 Caliber (.257) 100 gr. HPBT MatchKing
This 100 grain 25 caliber HPBT MatchKing® bullet #1628 has been designed with the characteristic MatchKing® quality features, a thin jacket for concentricity and uniformity, and precise weight control. It is appropriate for cartridges like the 257 Roberts Improved, 25-06, 257 Weatherby Magnum and 1x10" twist 250-3000 Savage.
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.

|Give excellent accuracy even when pushed @ 3600 f.p.s.+ in my .257 Wby. Accumark. Always prints 0.3-0.5 MOA groups with both IMR-4831 and MRP powders. I would love to see a 25 cal.115gr. Tipped Matchking in the near future.|

|Extremely consistent like all caliber MatchKings. Running right at 3400fps out of 25-06, bullets touching the lands, and holding MOA out to 900yds so far. Performance on prairie dogs is as expected with match bullets - some blow up, some just fall over.|
