20 Rounds of 69gr HPBT MatchKing .223 Ammo by Remington For Sale
If precision is your obsession, you could easily spend thousands of dollars outfitting your rifle with high-end aftermarket components. Just be sure to maintain your rifle’s ammunition! Precision permeates every aspect of this Remington Premier Match series 223 Rem cartridge, from the case’s rim to the tip of its hollow point boat tail bullet.
Sierra was given charge of this round’s bullet by Remington. In the US, the MatchKing is the most widely used competition bullet. Its perfectly smooth jacket, boat tail, and needle-like meplat all significantly reduce in-flight drag. Its homogeneous lead core and jacket concentricity together enable exceptional gyroscopic stability. And although though the round’s muzzle velocity is only 3,000 feet per second due to its large 69 grain bullet, the extra mass gives the bullet more resistance to wind drift hundreds of yards from the firing line.

MatchKing bullets, virgin brass cases, match Boxer primers, and consistent propellant charges are all components that Remington carefully assembles into these rounds. Just be careful not to mistake the MatchKing for a hunting bullet as its hollow point won’t entrap soft tissue and cause terminal expansion.
