Re: Sierra match king's as a hunting bullet
Most of the guys who don't recommend them due to many negative experiences refrain from posting because they get all but crucified for sharing. That said, there is plenty negative experiences here despite all the positive. As for me I gave up on them for hunting. Too many pencil holes, no major energy transfer and no blood trails. If you can ensure spine hits go for it. If not, you maybe disappointed in their inconsistency. Sometimes they open, sometimes they don't. Any 'hunting' bullet can fail to open too but they open a hell if a lot more reliably. Unpredictable is not part of my vocabulary with ANY part of my hunting gear.
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.
