This cartridge is loaded with a 168 grain open tip match. First and foremost, the OTM is not a hunting bullet and will not exhibit any significant amount of terminal expansion. The OTM is designed for one thing: accuracy.
Its nose cavity exists because the OTM’s jacket was formed first and subsequently filled with molten lead. The lead hardened in place to create a form-fitted core, hence the OTM’s unsurpassed rotational stability. Alongside its sleek and concentric jacket, this round’s bullet has what it needs to exhibit a G1 ballistic coefficient of 0.462. In other words, this round’s velocity shouldn’t become subsonic until around 1,092 yards.
You could certainly use this ammo to plug varmints, of course, so long as “overkill” isn’t in your dictionary. But however you fire this ammo, you’re sure to appreciate SIG’s high-quality and expertly pieced together primers, propellant and reloadable brass cases.
