This cartridge’s 125 grain bullet will clear a 16” barrel at a velocity of 2,100 fps. That’s almost double the speed of sound, so you can expect a cracking report followed by a satisfyingly flat trajectory. The open tip match bullet exhibits remarkable rotational stability courtesy of its superlative jacket concentricity and form-fitted lead core. Its narrow nose profile, aerodynamic jacket geometry and uniform dimensions are all in service of this ammo’s flat and consistent trajectory. It’s important to note that the OTM is not optimal for self-defense or hunting medium game. It does technically have a hollow point, but it is not designed to unleash terminal expansion after impact with a soft medium.
