I Have Been In Wrong Forums! Match King -Again.

Hello forum,Iīve been busy looking for a 338 Lapua bullet for moose,300 to 500 yds. Busy because I obviously need to order them from abroad ,all I need is one load for this rifle.

300 Grain Match King.Yes.

I have been totally ignorant. Now,after finding you guys the things are finally normalizing. I hunt moose,got the new TRG-S shooting Scenars very good,just the bullet for the moose was missing.

Whatever I have found here I have already read, even the accuratearms SMK thread until I noticed Ricciardelli there... maybe I read the rest later. He must be the one getting some beating. I met him in another forum just a few days ago and he introduced me to SMKs. Then the real search started.

I ended up finding SMKs for moose all over the Net, then again ridiculous,biased flames. Flames from people who have not even shot those in phonebooks or anything. Here in Longrange I found lots of facts. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

The moose donīt read what it says on the bullet box,especially when itīs in english and I hunt in Finland. I will order my SMKs.

I do not have access to many 338 bullets .I simply can not test them all now,this is a rare caliber here and hunters are biased as well. So the shops do not stock them. But I am a ballistic nut,I shoot a firearm almost every day. Practise,varmint,whatever.

Just tell me to get them,please. Or if not,please give me some other "fact" than it being a target bullet,okay? The information overflow is getting unbearable.

It all started here,if you have time take a look,this is a nice forum,my main hangout:

Legacy 338 Lapua Bullet For Moose

Then I got guided here from another forum,I wish I had posted all this in Longrange in the first place.

LoadYourOwn 338 Bullet For Moose

Please excuse my slightly ranting tone,I am just tired. But I am dead serious about this.Time is running,range time.

Thank you!

I think Dave King has used the 300gr MK on Moose out of a 338 Ultra

Re: I Have Been In Wrong Forums! Match King -Again.

Yes I am bias as well, bias twards SMK's that is. I and many friends hunt and cleanly kill big game including elk and moose and smaller game too.

GET THE MK's!!

Re: I Have Been In Wrong Forums! Match King -Again.

Howdy,got some sleep,now reading the hilarious accurateloading thread.Ouch!Match Kings

Hmm... my terminology was incorrect,MK meaning "MatchKing" and SMK "Sierra Match King",only talking ībout one and only bullet.Sorry Michael.

I really hope I didnīt start the same over here.

EDIT: The thing being that I have an accurate load data for Match King from Sako test shooters but not a single bullet does not make things easier at all.

Hehehh... I am somewhere halfway of that accurate thread. Thanks for sharing your experience, had I read more Iīd never started this one. Itīs all there.


The debate is over from my side. Just ordered 500 Match Kings. I wonder if they are good for American Orlovs? [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] Cheers,Gentlemen!

Re: I Have Been In Wrong Forums! Match King -Again.

I was also only talking about 1 bullet. MK, SMK, same thing. "Match king" is a registered trade mark of Sierra. Congrats on the 500 MK's

Petander & Boyd

I've shot three (3) moose now, all with the 300 SMK/MK/Sierra Match King/Match King. All were one (1) shot kills, distances varied from ~175 to 439 yards. Expansion on the only recovered bullet was good and it's been posted as a .jpg a few times.

Petander...500 count 338 cal 300 SMK's should hold you for a while, lot of dead somethings coming up.
