    The enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.

    These aren't match bullets, but are expanding - Section V. That's obvious from the website, and it even says 'VARMINT' on the box.

    They can't be posted ... if that was your hope. AFAIK there are no Match in 87gr for the .25-06 either. All 87gr bullets are 'Expanding' .... it's an odd weight peculiar to 6mm & .257.

    Virtually nothing from Hornady in any calibre is non-expanding 'Match' apart from a few lines in .224" or .308" (or when it says 'A-Max' e.g. 6.5mm).

    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    They are not for me,I was asking for a friend who use to shoot these a few years ago.
    Hornady 6MM (.243) 87gr BTHP BULLET MATCH 100/BX - X-Reload Inc.
    As you can see they are match,unless they have changed something.
    Dont know how many years ago he use to shoot these,perhaps they have been reclassified?

    If you check the Hornady 'Product Number' (#2442) below it's the same as the link you're relying on.

    These aren't MATCH, and are Collect Only ..... by your friend, or yourself if you've got the Section V authority.

    Just trying to help you stay within UK law. Links from the USA are often wrong.

    Hornady Manufacturing Company :: Bullets :: Rifle :: Choose by Caliber :: .243 6mm :: 6mm .243 87 gr BTHP
