These specialty 5.56mm NATO rounds from Barnes were designed to appeal to the demanding needs U.S. military snipers and designated marksman units. The "Precision Match" line is intended to provide the same incredible accuracy that Barnes bullets are known for but in a "full-up," ready-to-shoot package for those that don't care to do their own handloading. These rounds are made up of high quality components including fresh factory brass, clean-igniting primers, and carefully engineered propellant.
Each cartridge is crowned with an 85 grain projectile which possesses an open tip and a boat tail rear for ultimate drag resistance that contributes to tighter groups on target. 85 grains is quite massive for the 5.56x45mm caliber and should only be used with barrels of 1:8 or faster twist rate; this heavy profile gives the bullet a longer body for increased surface area to contact rifling and generate greater stability. That makes these rounds suitable for long range tack-driving as well as competitive use.
For over 80 years, Barnes has held a reputation for producing some the finest projectiles available in the U.S. market. Their creative design process has yielded a variety of ammo types which answer specific problems in law enforcement, extreme distance hunting, and competitive sniping challenges.
