??? Meplat Trimming???

Thank you! I had over looked the area of craftsmanship. SMK's are designed for accuracy at long ranges (The lights just came on).

Meplat trimming...
removeing material from the meplat (tip) of the bullet to make the frontal area the same bullet to bullet... reduces vertical dispersion at LR. Reduces the BC a little bit, but the results are more than worth it.

So how good of a hunting bullet is the Sierra Match King. I am going to shoot Triple shocks, how do the Sierra Match Kings shoot.

The SMK are very accurate. They are not designed for, nor tested on, game animals. Several members of this board, not I, have used them to take Elk with good results. I have yet to shoot the Triple Shocks. Let us know how they group.

The Triple shocks are grouping very good both out of my .300 mag and my buddy's .300 mag. Neither of us have had a chance to shoot any animals yet. Hopefully next weekend I will get the chance.

Re: Ballistic Coefficient (BC)

What grain bullet? Whats the velocity? How small are the groups?
I am building a 300 WM. Was wanting to try the Barnes.
Good luck on the hunt!!!
