Black Hills Ammunition is well-known for specialty and precision ammunition especially in .308 caliber. The Sierra 175 MatchKing™ is famous for its long-range accuracy, and the standard MatchKing been in the Black Hills line up for many years. The new 175 grain Tipped MatchKing™ bullet is now available in loaded .308 ammunition from Black Hills. The sleek polymer tip offers improved ballistic coefficient (.535) for long-range targets and, for the first time, a design which improves on-target performance uniformity, making this bullet a superior choice for applications including law enforcement and defense compared to standard open tipped match bullets.
Black Hills has again expanded its popular line of 5.56mm ammunition. Sierra 77 grain MatchKing™ bullets set the standard for long range accuracy in .223 and 5.56. World records have been set with those bullets, and MK262 ammunition loaded by Black Hills using MatchKing™ bullets has provided significantly increased capability to our nation’s soldiers, sailors and Marines. Sierra has now further refined this bullet with the addition of a polymer tip which improves upon the external ballistics by significantly increasing ballistic coefficient from .373 to .420. The tip also improves terminal ballistics, increasing uniformity of performance and penetration when the projectile arrives on target. This new Tipped MatchKing™ is now offered as an additional Black Hills 5.56 load.
Black Hills Ammunition has added two new performance loadings, a 5.56mm 77 grain and a .308 175 grain for 2014. Both new loads feature the newly developed Sierra Tipped MatchKing™ bullets. The sleek polymer tip on these new MatchKings increases the Ballistic Coefficient (BC) to an incredible .420 on the 5.56mm 77 grain and .535 on the .308 175 grain. These impressive BCs provide improved external ballistics with less drop and wind drift. In addition, the new tip design improves terminal performance by providing more uniform on-target performance compared to standard open tip match bullets.
