This 8mm MatchKing® was added to Sierra’s line in 2002. It provides European shooters with a world-class target bullet for this traditional and popular European caliber, and it fills a void for American shooters who favor cartridges in this caliber, such as the 8mm Remington Magnum and 8 x 57mm.
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.
