It looks like The 220SMK and maybe the 210JLK would be what I want to test...I have some 200SMK's loaded now

You can find the JKLs at:
Jimmy knox of Dover Ar. 1-479-331-4149
haven't seen any game shot with them... but id expect performance on par with the SMKs.
Anybody who thinks the SMK won't work on game must have been under a rock for the last few years... no slam on the accubond, its a GREAT bullet, but intill we start talking about moose or bigger, ill take the SMK any day.

Re: What 30 cal bullet ....looking for good BC?

If they are such a great game bullet they why does Sierra does not advertise them as such? Is it that they want to keep this great secret for themselves only and not chance selling a lot of bullets?

I do not get it! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

POP,
Perhaps you should make a post simply titled "matchkings won't work as a hunting bullet" and see what happens. A lot of guys around here use them. I know you know this since you have responded to those threads before.
Try them! They work!
for those wanting some entertainment and discussion about sierra matchkings for game, heres about a months worth. over 100Pages

http://forums.accuratereloading.com/...510355&p=1

if you want the short version, try this one... only 5 pages... nobody was stupid enough to step up on the anti-matchking side [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: What 30 cal bullet ....looking for good BC?

I know that a lot of people use them here....and elsewhere for that matter. Personally it is one of biggest pet peeves. What can I say?
I just do not think they are the best tool for the job at hand. Lots of guys have been killed with the 25 ACP but it will never ever be my choice for self defense.
However you still not answered my question about Sierra not advertising them as a hunting bullet and actually warning against their use.
