Re: Sierra Matchkings for hunting
Sorry Ric I couldn't wait, drink two beer and munch some chips while you read this!
For those wanting to know about using.
Sierra MatchKings as a hunting bullet...!!!
If you have no experience with the equipment or components in question in the environment or application requested, refrain from comment.
I've killed HUNDREDS of critters with Sierra MatchKings... Wild Boar, Feral Hog, White-Tail deer, Moose, Black Bears, Ground Hogs and probably other stuff.
They work just fine for me... 168 and 175 SMK 308, 300 SMK 338, 69 SMK 223.
There is a single exception for my use...the 6.5mm 142 SMKs... I was not impressed with their performance but others have reported they work fine.
THE KEY as with all bullets IS SHOT PLACEMENT.
I shoot, brain, spine or double lung as a rule.
I DON'T shoot water filler jugs at 300 yards with the 168's, they apparently won't make them explode. ( I read this on the internet!)
Experience beat speculation and conjecture.
Okay, who's next?
