.30 Caliber/7.62mm (.308) 150 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.
Originally designed and developed for 300 meter international matches, the 150 grain #2190 was introduced in the late 1950s. Their first major competitive match was in the 1959 Pan American Games.
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.

|Although you may not recommend them for hunting I have dropped an 8 point white tail at 800 yards with one of these bullets. At 350 yards and below, they are accurate enough to place the shot at the base of the skull and sever the spinal cord for an instantaneous kill.|

|I shoot Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) with several rifles one of which is an M1 Garand. I just switched to your 150 gr HPBTM bullet and "Wow" what a load. I just won the Garand Collectors Association shoot in Cody Wyoming and one other local match. I will be shooting the load at the regional match in Phoenix next month. Great bullet.|
