It's unusual for a jacketed match bullet to have a cannelure. Sierra makes separate cannelured version of the 77 grain MatchKing that was originally intended for military ammo (to better tolerate rough handling). I don't know who makes the bullet you are describing.

The other curious thing about that bullet is the rather abrupt departure of the ogive from the bearing surface in the side shot. Makes it appear to be a secant ogive design, something usually done only with VLD's.

They must of had Hornady do a special run because Hornady's 52gr BTHP doesn't normally come with a cannelure.
