30 caliber/7.62mm (.308) 240 gr. HPBT MatchKing

Sierra MatchKing BulletsMatchKings® 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.

The 240 grain #9245 bullet is currently the heaviest 30 caliber MatchKing® in Sierra's line. This bullet was developed several years ago as a sniper bullet for the 300 Winchester Magnum cartridge. This 240 grain bullet is difficult to stabilize, requiring a barrel with a 1x9" twist rate in all the 30 caliber magnum cartridges.


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.

This bullet requires a barrel twist rate of 1x9” or faster.

I have found the same as others. The 240gr 308 is stabilizing well in my 1:10 Thompson center. I am only pushing the bullet in the mid range for velocities and they are preforming very well.

They say it needs 9" twist to stabilize, but both myself and a friend use these out to 1400 yards in Savage BA110's with a 10" twist and they stabilize just fine. Great bullet, especially if you can seat it out far enough to take advantage of your case's capacity. Highly recommend!
