This cartridge is loaded with Barnes’ own Match Burner open tip match boat tail. It's a streamlined bullet thanks to its ballistically efficient boat tail, and a balanced one at that courtesy of its heightened jacket concentricity and form-fitted lead core. You probably already know this if you’re a fan of a cartridge as cutting-edge as the 6.5 Grendel, but the OTM BT is not a hunting bullet – it won’t widen out while it penetrates soft tissue, which means it’s not designed for icing Bambi.
This round’s 2,590 fps muzzle velocity gives its 120 grain OTM BT a G1 ballistic coefficient of 0.460. Expect your trajectory to peak at about 6.7” if your sight height is 1.5”, and don’t count on that bullet to become subsonic until it has screamed past the 1,000 yard line.
Barnes loads their Precision Match series ammo in Utah with the finest brass cases, match grade Boxer primers and low-fouling propellant they can source. Barnes is most famous for their monolithic bullets, although this particular ammo’s bullets do have conventional lead cores.
