I got some so-called match grade 62 grained from Widners.
Guess what, they lied.

No one makes a match grade FMJ because no one shoots FMJ in target matches. I also expect that FMJ's are less inherently accurate than hollow points due to manufacturing issues.

Years ago the US military shot "match" FMJ's in 30 caliber. This was because their factories were set up to make Hague convention bullets. The FMJ's they made were OK but are horrible compared to SMK's. By the time you get into the 80's, only a few people were shooting FMJ's and that was only in preparation for Leg matches where you were issued LC Match ammunition. Once LC bought 168 SMK's and installed them on LC Match ammunition, that was the end of the 174 FMJBT bullet.
