New Product Announcement

6.5 mm 150 gr. HPBT MatchKing® #1755

Sierra Bullets is proud to introduce a new addition to the legendary MatchKing® line. Shooters around the world will appreciate the accuracy and extreme long range performance of our new 6.5 mm 150 grain HPBT (#1755). A sleek 27 caliber elongated ogive and a final meplat reducing operation (pointing) 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. This bullet requires a twist rate of 1:7.5" or faster to stabilize.

While they are recognized around the world for record-setting accuracy, MatchKing® and Tipped MatchKing® bullets are not recommended for most hunting applications. Although MatchKing® and Tipped MatchKing® bullets are commonly used for varmint hunting, their design will not provide the same reliable explosive expansion at equivalent velocities on varmints compared to their lightly jacketed Hornet, BlitzKing, or Varminter counterparts.

The new 6.5 mm 150 grain HPBT bullets will be available in boxes of 500 bullets (#1755C) with a suggested retail of $250.94 per box and boxes of 100 bullet (#1755) with a suggested retail of $50.98 per box.

Celebrating 70 years of manufacturing the most accurate bullets in the world in 2017, Sierra Bullets was founded in California in 1947. Since relocating to Sedalia, MO in 1990, Sierra has manufactured a very wide range of bullets for both rifles and pistols. Today, Sierra uses the highest level of precision in design, manufacturing, and quality control standards to produce bullets used for precision target shooting, hunting and defense purposes. Sierra Bullet lines include: BlitzKing, Varminter, GameKing, MatchKing, Tipped-MatchKing, Pro-Hunter, Sports Master, and Tournament Master. Available calibers range from .204 through to .500.
