A quote from one of our PM's...........
"Parker 327 Match Hunters, 2270 fps with 100 grains Blackhorn 209 by weight."
Before I shot Match Hunters, I'd talk to Bob Parker. The MH are designed for much more speed that you or I can attain.
They're ok on paper or steel at the speeds the RU may have but, not on game. If you didn't want to hunt with Barnes, then try the Parker Ballistic Extreme 300gr.
I've talked at length with Bob about shooting his bullets out of my Ultimate BP Xpress, shooting 180grs. Bob was very clear
..... don't shoot the MH while hunting
, as I would never get the speed for the bullet to expand properly. His recommendation was the BE 300gr.
Save your money for other necessities. You'll need plenty of primer carriers, which from what I understand are not cheap.
