Sierra Bullets Introduces New 7mm MatchKing® Bullet

7mm HPBT 183 gr. MatchKing

 

 

 

 
Sierra Bullets is proud to introduce a new addition to the legendary MatchKing® line.  Shooters around the world will appreciate the accuracy and extreme long range performance of our new 7mm 183 grain HPBT (#1983).  A sleek 27 caliber elongated ogive and a final meplat reducing operation (pointing) provide an increased ballistic coefficient for optimal wind resistance and velocity retention.  To ensure precise bullet to bore alignment, a unique bearing surface to ogive junction uses the same 1.5 degree angle commonly found in match rifle chamber throats.  This bullet requires a twist rate of 1:8” or faster to stabilize.

uncoveredWhile they are recognized around the world for record-setting accuracy, MatchKing® and Tipped MatchKing® bullets are not recommended for most hunting applications.  Although MatchKing® and Tipped MatchKing® bullets are commonly used for varmint hunting, their design will not provide the same reliable explosive expansion at equivalent velocities in varmints compared to their lightly jacketed Hornet, Blitz BlitzKing, or Varminter counterparts.

The new 7mm 183 grain HPBT bullets will be available in boxes of 500 bullets (#1983C) with a 2016 suggested retail of $256.34 per box and boxes of 100 bullet (#1983) with a suggested retail of $51.80 per box.

    Cool!! If I ever get around to cutting, Crowning, and installing my 7mm08 barrel for my Striker bolt action pistol, I will be trying these 183’s in it.
    Great group by the way!

    Outstanding! Currently I use 37.5g IMR 3031 w/168g matchking for my 509yd silhouette load. Do you think I could use this same load of powder w/this new 183g?
    Thanks
