.284 Caliber (.284) 160 gr. Tipped MatchKing (TMK)
Sierra has enhanced a segment of the MatchKing line by adding the acetal resin tip, thus crowning the Tipped MatchKing (TMK) bullet line. The major advantage of adding a tip to the bullet is the reduction of drag, producing a more favorable ballistic coefficient. Another benefit is reliable feeding in magazine fed firearms.
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.
The #7660 was introduced in November 2015.

|Excellent accuracy from my rem 700 long range in 7mm rem mag. Shoot these with a stout charge of h4831sc and produce one ragged hole at 100 yards. I shoot out to 1500 and the bc has been very true maybe better then advertised. I know not recommended by sierra for hunting but for wv whitetail deer it is an awesome bullet normally drops on spot no tracking and devastating wound channel. A+++ to sierra for these awesome bullets!|
