Sierra created the 30 caliber 155 grain HPBT PALMA to fill the long-range demands of the PALMA and other long range shooters. The #2156 PALMA bullet has a longer, more streamlined 9 caliber ogive, slightly longer OAL and a pointed meplat, which is a first for Sierra Bullets.
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 heavier jackets will not provide the same reliable explosive expansion at equivalent velocities in varmints compared to their lightly jacketed Hornet, Blitz or Varminter counterparts.
