Sierras are the Bulletsmiths!
6mm / 243
The #1505 was introduced in 1974.
The 70 grain MatchKing®, which was designed expressly for record-breaking precision, immediately established itself as the bullet to beat in centerfire competitions out to 400 yards. The #1505 HPBT received widespread and rapid popularity thanks to Sierra's traditional precision design.
The 70 grain #1505 MatchKing® bullet, which was designed as a bench rest bullet, is suitable for targets out to medium range in handguns chambering 6mm cartridges. This bullet possesses the well-known MatchKing® characteristics of precision concentricity and uniformity, as well as exceptional accuracy. For the NRA half-size silhouettes, this bullet is a perfect choice.
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 in varmints compared to their lightly jacketed Hornet, Blitz or Varminter counterparts.
