While MatchKing® and Tipped MatchKing® bullets are known for their record-breaking accuracy, they are not recommended for most hunting purposes. Although MatchKing® and Tipped MatchKing® bullets are popular for varmint hunting, their design does not deliver the same consistent explosive expansion at equal velocities as their thinly jacketed Hornet, Blitz, or Varminter equivalents.
The 6.5mm/.264 inch bore has recently seen a boom in popularity. Several rifle manufacturers are now producing 6.5x55mm sporters, introducing a new generation of shooters to this well-known classic Scandinavian service and hunting cartridge. The 6.5mm bore size has also piqued the curiosity of competitive HighPower and Silhouette shooters.
In medium- and high-capacity 6.5mm cartridges, the 140 grain #1740 bullet is a formidable contender for ranges of up to 1000 yards.
