This cartridge is loaded with Barnes’ own 55 grain Match Burner projectile. It’s an open tip match, with an excessively concentric copper jacket and long, ballistically efficient boat tail which keeps the Match Burner traveling faster, flatter and with less interference from crosswinds downrange.
Novice shooters often mistake an OTM for a hollow point bullet that expands. In fact, the Match Burner only has a nose cavity because its form-fitted core was injected into place. That’s part of the reason why this OTM boasts such excellent rotational stability!
Barnes loads their high BC bullet in a match grade case, with nothing less than match grade priming and powder to back it up. You won’t just group your shots. You’ll march them through the bullseye in a conga line!
