yip a SLIGHTLY modified tipped matchking (which fellas are hunting with already)...... make it similar but keep matchking seperate so the armed forces can still use it as its a "match" projectile..... another great reinvention of the wheel  Roll Eyes to grab bigger share of sales.

Other than the colour of the poly tip, are we sure there's no other diff to the TMK??

I emailed Sierra directly and here was the response:

"The GameChanger bullet line has much heavier jackets than the GameKings and the Tipped MatchKing"

In which case it will likely be useless as a longer range projectile.

All the wizardry in the world amounts to Jack shit if the firer cannot put the projectile where it matters. These look good and given the manufacturer will likely prove to be reliably matched to the information provided. 

These will not make up for poor decision making. inaccurate shooting etc.

When used within spec and accurately placed I would expect very good results.
