This cartridge features a 140 grain open tip match boat tail bullet. Its nose cavity does not let the bullet expand like you would want for hunting. It’s there because the OTM’s core was inserted into its jacket while it was still molten. The bullet’s form-fitted core, intensely concentric jacket, narrow tapering boat tail base, and high uniformity give it a G1 ballistic coefficient of 0.586 (G7 0.289). That’s sufficient to keep its velocity faster than 1,400 fps at 1,000 yards – just what the doctor ordered, if the doctor is prescribing long-distance ammunition. Some doctor!
Barnes sockets their extremely consistent match bullet in a premium brass case, with a match primer and charge of carefully formulated and measured propellant to get the ball rolling. Precision Match cartridges are expertly inspected throughout manufacture to guarantee the most reliable performance possible from a factory load.
