Federal has perfectly named their Gold Medal line of ammunition. This 223 Remington cartridge is the one to chamber if you expect discerning judges to award you with accolades made from precious metal. It’s also the best way to see exactly how precisely you can land shots over staggering distances on your own time, because it is outfitted with Sierra’s MatchKing. The MatchKing has won more target shooting competitions than all other bullets combined!

This round’s bullet weighs 77 grains. That’s a big boy for the 223 Rem, and as such this MatchKing boasts the mass it needs to thumb its nose at crosswinds trying to shift its course. The MatchKing has a precision angled boat tail – a tapered base that drastically decreases in-flight drag. Along with its consistent 2,720 fps muzzle velocity, that gives the bullet a G7 ballistic coefficient of 0.188 for a flat, predictable trajectory.

Many new shooters mistake the MatchKing’s design for that of a hunting bullet, but this designated target bullet’s hollow point does not actually bring about terminal expansion. It shows that the MatchKing started out as just a jacket, with thin, concentric walls that promote superior rotational stability. The MatchKing’s stability is even greater still because its lead core formed in place within its jacket, perfectly conforming to its contours in the process. The MatchKing’s base is fully jacketed, which prevents its core from any sort of deformation throughout the intense heat of ignition.

Federal took total care to complement the MatchKing’s award winning ballistic performance with their own benchrest grade Gold Medal primer and clean burning, consistently loaded propellant. Federal’s own brass seats the MatchKing at the perfect depth and levelness for even better accuracy, and such a case certainly deserves reloading after the range day has ended.
