Brand: Sierra 1815
Boat tail hollow point rifle bullets have a truncated conical shape at the base of the bullet and a hollow point which generates rapid expansion and penetration. The hollow point boat tail bullet is streamlined to stabilize the bullet and increase accuracy.
Developed specifically for the new 6.8mm SPC round, Sierra's new 115 grain Hollow Point Boat Tail added yet another option to the entire range of .277" caliber cartridges. A good ballistic shape combined with relatively light weight provides terrific velocity potential. These features make the 115 gr. MatchKing an ideal choice for target shooting at short to medium ranges. Suitable for cartridges from the new 6.8mm SPC through the .270 Weatherby Magnum.
For serious rifle competition, you'll be in championship company with MatchKing bullets. The hollow point boat tail design provides that extra margin of ballistic performance match shooters need to fire at long ranges under adverse conditions.
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.
