There's an exception to every rule. SMK is some good stuff. The issues below 55 grain revolve around cheaper thin jacketed rounds coming apart. Sierra Match King is the opposite of cheap thin jacketed rounds. The overspin accuracy problems came into play at long distances though. Any .223/.556 that doesn't fly apart can usually shoot accurate up to about 100 yards.
