Sierra Bullets Load Data For 2018 New MatchKing Bullets

Sierra Bullets is excited to release load data for four of our newest bullets: the 22 caliber 95 gr HPBT MatchKing #1396, 6.5mm 150 gr HPBT MatchKing #1755, 30 caliber 200 gr HPBT MatchKing #2231, and 30 caliber 230 gr HPBT MatchKing #2251.  If you handload for 22-250, 223 Remington, 6.5 x284 Norma, 308 Winchester, or 300 Winchester Magnum check out this new reloading data.  Click here to download the data which can be printed and added to the Sierra Bullets 5th Edition Reloading Manual.

NOTE: If you downloaded the 308 Winchester information for the 200 grain bullets prior to February 6, 2018 please replace that information with the corrected information below and in the PDF link above.  The
308 Winchester load data listed below will not work for the 200 gr MatchKing #2230 or
200 gr GameKing #2165 as was previously stated.

    Could you please provide G7 B.S. bullets?


  5. Alexey says:

    Will you be publishing data for the 300 Norma magnum? I’d like to try your new 230 gr bullet.

    The comment in red: “NOTE: If you downloaded this information prior to February 6, 2018 the
    308 Winchester load data listed below will not work for the 200 gr MatchKing #2230 or 200 gr GameKing #2165 as was previously stated.”, is confusing. Are you trying to say that the 308 Winchester load data has been updated, and that information downloaded before Feb 6 should be discarded? Or are you saying you know there is a problem with the data shown currently is known to be wrong, i.e. “ … listed below will not work…” ? Please clarify…


  8. Matt says:

  15. James says:

  26. ken mcdonld says:

    I selected the Sierra 168 gr. TMK for my 308 and 30.06. Can I get the recipes for my rifles ? I have a Remington 7600 30.06 pump with a 22.5 inch barrel and a twist rate of 10, and Savage 308 with 22 inch barrel – not sure of the twist rate. I am looking for the most consistent bullet I can make for target shooting at 600 yards for competition.

    Looking for best performance and even suggested amount of powder. I will try some other amounts of powder as well, but looking for some help from someone that knows this subject well nd hoping to hear back with some help to shorten the path to my final setup.

    Thank you all very much
