Re: Sierra Matchking

Richard's post got me thinking about another thread I've seen:

I about half expected to see a big pile of Taliban. But, I guess that wouldn't be politically correct.

Notwithstanding the effectiveness of the SMK...

Why not stick with the 168 Berger?

If you consider it effective in your 7RM, why would it not be equally effective from your wife's 7-08? (minus a few hundred yards as would be expected from any given bullet when comparing those 2 cartridges)
