Brand: Sierra 1742
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.
The streamlined tapered base of the boat tail bullet greatly reduces drag, which results in higher retained velocity, greater striking energy, a flatter trajectory and less wind drift than comparable flat base bullets.
Hollow point boat tail bullets are rifle bullets with a truncated conical shape at the base of the bullet. HPBT bullets have a hollow cavity in the nose that allows expansion on impact.
