Barnes Precision Match Open Tip Match 69 Grain 5.56x45mm Ammo - 20 Rounds
Use of 5.56 ammo reaches far beyond just military and civil defense. When loaded with specialty ammunition, the cartridge is quite capable of being a small to medium hunting round and when match purposes are required, it can reach out further than assumed “traditional“ engagement distances for this small/medium rifle cartridge.
This 5.56x45 ammunition is loaded with Barnes’ 69 grain, open tip match bullet. That bullet also has an extended boat tail for increased stability out of slower twist (1:7) barrels. Their 69 grain bullet has a muzzle velocity of 2900 feet per second with 1288 foot pounds of energy making this an ideal cartridge for competitive match shooting and training. Note: these rounds are NOT intended for use in .223 Remington chambers.
Since Fred Barnes began molding his own bullets in his basement in 1932, the name has been indelibly linked to quality and performance. OTM boat tailed cartridges add extended range and accuracy to a caliber that is considered at most, a medium range option. Selected by the competition teams of the US military, however, gives all the evidence one should require for the claim that Barnes is one of the best choices for hitting the target each time and every time.
