Re: Sierra Match Kings

I have killed a dall sheep and a caribou this year both with the 308 168 MK bullets at a speed of 2661. The bou was running at 300 yards and INSTANLY dropped and the sheep walked 2 steps at 763 yards. A buddy of mine killed an elk last Nov with a 180 MK at 430 yards. Give em a try, for long range hunting, you cannot kill what you cannot hit.

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

Re: Sierra Match Kings

I have been using the 140 SST in my 264 this year for deer and hogs. Performance has been excellent. But you guys have about convinced me that I need to try the MK's I have a box of 6.5MM 140 gr SMK's. Would they be ok, or do I need the 142 gr MK's? Thanks, Jim

Re: Sierra Match Kings

Southtexas, You said hogs.Do you mean pigs or groundhogs. If you were talking about pigs, have you tried them on groundhogs?

Frankg: I was referring to feral hogs (we got lots of 'em). Haven't ever fired in anger at a groundhog. Sounds like fun, though! Jim
