Manufacturer: Sierra 2220
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.
MatchKings 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. Sierra offers the widest selection of 30 caliber match bullets in the world today, producing bullets suited to nearly every form of long-range competition.
The 180 grain #2220 MatchKing actually was the first of the prestigious MatchKing family, having been introduced in 1955. For its debut, it was used to win the Wimbledon cup 1000- yard match.
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.
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.
