Made specifically for the 5.56x45mm chamber for match purposes and in rifles with barrel twist rates that spin faster, like the 1:8 or 1:7 barrels. The heavy weight projectile is an 85 grain open tip match bullet by Barnes and is built to give competition shooters, who don’t handload or who need to shoot the same rounds every time, the option to find high end 5.56 specific loads on the shelf.
Barnes is serious about their quality control, and the Barnes Precision line is no exception. It is a specialty round that gives match shooters an advantage in an off the shelf precision load that has a very specific use in mind. This is a very niche product and it shows with all the disclaimers on the packaging from Barnes. The benefit you get is when you are shooting this out of the appropriate barrel, with the appropriate chambering and throat angle, you’ll get accurate, reliably loaded and extracted shots in the AR platform. What else could you ask for in a competition setting?
Suitable for use in competitive shooting sports where you will be utilizing a 5.56×45 chambering and a fast twist rate of 1 in 8 or 1 in 7 or faster.
