Sierra Match King\'s for deer in 6MM

<font color="red"> </font> <font color="black"> </font>I am sure that this subject has been beat to death in the past but I did a search and could find no results.
Do Sierra 6MM Match King bullets kill deer as readily as the Game King counter parts? I am considering using the 115 Gr in a 6XC with a MV of 2950.

Do you mean 115 bergers because I think that the largest matchking made is 107? If you are talking about the bergers they work very well on deer. Never had any experience with the 107 6mm matckings though. But in other calibers the matchkings always worked great for me on deer.

The 115 DTAC's are made by Sierra. I have (my daughter made the shot) only witnessed one buck deer killed with it. range was 350 yards with a MV of just over 2700 fps w/a 6-284 XP-100. Had good performance-one shot kill.

Re: Sierra Match King\'s for deer in 6MM

Others have reported good results. I think it mostly depends on how your gun shoots. I shot a fat 3 pt buck at 35 yards using my 270 WSM and 135gr MK. On dissection, the heart, liver was fully intact. The lungs (other than a silver dollar sized node) were liquefied.

BTW, there was a pretty good article on the 6mm by a hunters safety instructor. He said many of the female students used 6mm (or 243). One even killed elk with it. My brother used to shoot elk with his ..243 (until I loaned him my 338 WinMag).

The Game King is a better killing bullet at close range (and arguably every range).

Ernie - Kudo's to you for taking your daughter hunting!
