Brand: Sierra 1915
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.
The 150 grain #1915 bullet has a large following in rifle silhouette competition, especially for the first three banks, chickens, pigs and turkeys. This bullet also has a loyal following in Hunter Benchrest target shooting.
In handguns, this bullet has been used widely for handgun silhouettes and other target competitions. They deliver outstanding accuracy, high momentum downrange, and low sensitivity to crosswinds.
Although they are recognized around the world for record-setting accuracy, MatchKing bullets are not recommended for hunting.
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.
