    Antelope Hunting Bullet

    I have a rifle in 6.5-284 that shoots 140 grain Sierra Match Kings lights out. The box says the bullets are not for hunting, but I have heard from many people that these bullets work fine on antelope. What are your thoughts on using these for hunting?

    Don't know about the MK but I've used the 129gr Hornady out of my 6.5x55 and they worked great on deer and antelope last year.

    The Match King will kill an antelope just as dead as any other bullet. I'm using 140 Berger Hybrids this year for deer without losing any sleep over it.
