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

Very good,Boyd! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I´ve seen the pic,yup. The initial shock from discovering MK:s is gone now. But man,little did I know. [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Yes Michael,I noticed that afterwards too. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] In this ammo-frenzy I completely forgot to sleep for a while -downside of the Internet - and I quarantee you guys,reports will follow when the time comes. [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Now,waiting... got Scenars,can shoot... really funny,I know the theoretical external ballistics for my MK load upside down. Still have not had a single boolit in my hand. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

This caliber really rocks.And this forum. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Hello

    For what's it's worth.

    Have used Match Kings on about 20 elk with complete success. Only recovered two bullets that were mushroomed perfectly.

    I used the 200 gr and 220 gr MKs in my 30/378, the 240 gr MK in my 300 Tomahawk and the 300 Gr MK in my 338/416 Rigby IMP.

    I also use the 168 Gr MK in my 7/300 Weatherbys and also the 140 Gr and 142 Gr MK in my 6.5/300 Weatherby.

    The jackest hold up well and will not explode on contact with hitting a heavy shoulder such as the elk or moose.
    The MK does wonders to bears also. Ask Dan Lilja the barrel maker. He has the pics of a bear we took in Colorado. The wound was unreal.

    Later and welcome aboard
    DC
