The 240 grain #9245 bullet is currently the heaviest 30 caliber MatchKing in Sierra's line. This bullet was developed several years ago as a sniper bullet for the 300 Winchester Magnum cartridge, and its performance surpassed a 250 grain MatchKing bullet that shooters may recall was in Sierra's line for a brief period. This 240 grain bullet is difficult to stabilize, requiring a barrel with a 1x9" twist rate in all the 30 caliber magnum cartridges.
Sierra MatchKing bullets have set the standards worldwide for consistent accuracy in handguns as well as rifles. Since the introduction of the high performance Remington XP-100 and similar handguns chambering larger rifle cartridges, all 30 caliber MatchKings have been used in handgun silhouettes and long-range target competitions. Sierra's famous MatchKing design assures superb accuracy, flat trajectory, and high momentum delivery with low sensitivity to crosswinds at all ranges.
Although they are recognized around the world for record-setting accuracy, MatchKing bullets are not recommended for hunting.
