Re: Sierra MatchKing Bullets
They'll work, but they're not going to be as explosive as a true carmint bullet. Take a look at the hollowpoint, and the reason is obvious. They close the nose down on MatchKings as far as they can, typically to about a .060" meplat. The hollow point openings on the hunting/varminting bullets are subtstantially larger, and promote much more violent expansion. The MatchKings tend to behave more like FMJs, but still, an FMJ at 3000 fps+ is some serious bad news on a varmint size critter. Just a matter of degrees.
