Product Information

The 6.5mm/.264 inch bore has recently enjoyed a resurgence of interest. Several rifle manufacturers currently produce 6.5x55mm sporters, exposing a new generation of shooters to this famous old Scandinavian service and hunting cartridge. Competitive HighPower and Silhouette shooters have also shown great interest in the 6.5mm bore size.

The 142 grain #1742 bullet has a longer ogive radius than the 140 grain #1740 bullet and thus a higher ballistic coefficient with less sensitivity to crosswinds.

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.

This is not loaded ammunition.

This bullet requires a barrel twist rate of 1x8” or faster.


WARNING: This product can expose you to Lead, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information go to -

The original gold standard

By George M. on May 18, 2020
I’ve been shooting these in a 6.5-284 for twenty years. They are what the Berger’s, Hornady etc bullets are compared to and must exceed to get any attention. I’m not sure the others are enough better to earn the extra cost; that’s a personal thing.

Very consistant weights and ogive lengths. Easily do sub .3 MOA 5 shot groups at 100 yards.

Great Bullets

I have been shooting Sierra bullets for years. I purchased
a new rifle and wanted to try out another name brand

But again I found the Sierra to prove they are the best in accuracy, you can pay more ....... But why !!

These are Great Bullets, you won't be disappointed.
