Sierra Introduces New 6.5mm 107 gr Tipped MatchKing Bullet

Sierra Bullets is proud to announce another addition to our popular Tipped MatchKing® line. In 2014, Sierra Bullets crowned the MatchKing® with an acetal resin tip that lowers the drag by improving the ballistic coefficient. We continue to expand this extremely popular line by adding another 6.5mm option in 107 gr.

While 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 on varmints compared to their lightly jacketed Hornet, BlitzKing®, or Varminter counterparts.

The new 6.5mm 107 grain Tipped MatchKing® bullets will be available in boxes of 500 bullets (#7407C) with a suggested retail of $205.07 per box and boxes of 100 bullet (#7407) with a suggested retail of $41.79 per box.

    You keep posting 6.5 load data for Creedmoor. How about data for other 6.5 shooters. You know, the 6.5x .284,
    260 Remington, and 6.5 x 47 Lapua.

    We are a sizeable share of the market, ignore us, and we just might buy bullets in boxes that are not green.

    Why are there not heavier bullets available for the 25-06. It would give 6.5 creedmoore a run for it’s money

      Barrel twist. rate. All factory 25-06 rifles, and most 25 cal reamers for custom barrels, are 10 twist. This is borderline for stabilizing 115g bullets and heavier, especially the longer profile bullets more commonly seen now (vlds, etc). I built a 25-06 and had to really scout around to find a barrel in 9 twist (Hart), as many manufactures don’t even make a 25 cal barrel faster than 10. It shoots the Berger 115g vlds great. Some people can shoot these in 10 twist also, but those rifles will nearly always shoot the 100g bullets better, so most people default to those. All of this affects bullet selection, which is why there really aren’t any 25 cal bullets over 120g. The reason there are so many 140g 6.5mm bullets is there are so many 8 twist rifles chambered for one 6.5mm cartridge or another. So for those looking for more performance than the 6.5 Creedmoor, in a caliber at or close to 6.5mm, and capable of shooting bullets of reasonably high BC, one can do as I did with a 9 twist 25-06, or get a 6.5-06 wildcat, or a 6.5-284 Norma, to name a few.

      A long action cartridge vs a short action 6.5 isn’t a fair comparison. But it’s funny that it takes a long action to compete with the well balanced 6.5cm

    I have been using your 107HPBT #1715 in my 6.5×55 over ten years and it hasn’t failed yet. Head shots are the norm, but when I have to make a torso shot every deer has fallen in his tracks. That says a lot about your bullets, and all the bullet boxes in my shop are green. Thank you, Sierra.
