    Antelope Hunting Bullet Question

    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?

    If they shoot lights out, then by all means, use them. Antelope are not tough to kill.

    Just noticed you posted this question three times. Was that really necessary?

    He posted it in 3 different spots on the forum. Notice there are replies on all
    3 of his posts? There are some people that only look at certain parts of this forum, not just the "what's new" part. Better to be safe than sorry

    It's not like there are hundreds of topics on this forum. It would have been seen by everyone at some point or another.

    I love sierra bullets, i use them for everything, but the MK's are what they say they are, they are meant for match shoots, so i would hope that you could shoot them with decent groupings. My opinion, i would shoot the game kings. Doesnt matter what rifle i load for, i have great accuracy with them and they are a hunting bullet. Granted, goats are not hard to kill, but if your going hunting i would shoot a hunting bullet.

    I have killed everything from 150 pound kangaroo to a 1400 pound Murray Gray heifer with a 190 grain Sierra match king in the 30-06.

    For an antelope it will work fine, just remember two words.......NO BONE!

    The .338 300 Grain SMK is much more of a killer.
