Default Sierra Match Bullets Wanted - 30 Cal 180 & 190 gr

I would like to buy or swap for a few of the old Sierra Match bullets in 180 and 190 grains. I mean the old bullets with the 9 degree boattail. I need 4 or 5 of each for some tests. I have other bullets to trade, let me know what you want.
Thanks
Ray

I will have to check on the 190s I have in the stash, but I know I have some of the earliest 180 Match Kings. These are actually FMJBT before the HP variant was available. Happy to share.

Got it, Ray. Back at you. According to the fellow at Sierra, they were old enough to vote when I bought them.

Thanks WMC. Email sent back.

I think those 180 grain FMJ were from the late 1950s. In the 60s they went to all Hp for the Match King bullets, 168, 180, 190, 200 grains. The 180s were changed again in the 80s, shortening and steepening the BT. At least that's how I understand it. I talk frequently with the good old boys at Sierra and even they don't remember everything that took place when Sierra was back in CA.
