For some shooters, Sierra is the king of the hill.

Really, the regard for Missouri manufacturer’s MatchKing bullets has reached mythical proportions in certain corners of the shooting world. But there is good reason why the hollow-point projectiles have earned such respect in the world of precision shooting – they get the job done.

Sierra, however, is aiming to tighten up groups a bit more with the addition of six bullets to the line. And while they have taken a marked break from the classic MatchKing design, the tweaks could make the already accurate bullet even more so.

The company’s new Tipped MatchKing Bullets are designed to give shooters a ballistic boost. They do so through the addition of an acetal resin tip, which lowers drag by improving the ballistic coefficient. Most of Sierra’s new line is presently available and come in 100 to 500 count boxes.
