About the Sierra Bullets .308 230GR HPBT Matchking
Sierra Bullets .308 230GR HPBT Matchking is an extremely accurate and has extremely long range performance of the 30 Cal 230 garin HPBT. A sleek 27 caliber elongated ogive and a final meplat reducing operation provide an increased ballistic coefficient for optimal wind resistance and velocity retention. To ensure precise bullet to bore alignment, a unique bearing surface to ogive junction uses the same 1.5 degree angle commonly found in many match rifle chamber throats. While they are recognized around the world for record-setting accuracy, Matchking bullets are not recommended for most hunting applications. Although Matchking bullets are commonly used for varmint hunting, their design will not provide the same reliable explosive expansion at equivalent velocities in varmints compared to their lightly jacketed counterparts. This bullet requires a barrel twist rate of 1x8" or faster. These bullets were introduced in early 2018.
