The Ammo: Black Hills 5.56 .69GR OTM

When US Military purchases ammunition for our troops, some of the most rigorous field testing in the world is conducted in order to to ensure performance, regardless of the conditions. The Black Hills 69gr 5.56 Open Tip Match now brings those same qualities to the civilian sector, and the results have been nothing short of extraordinary.

One of the most groundbreaking engineering marvels of the 21st century revolves around Black Hills ammunition. The Black Hills 69gr 5.56 Open Tip Match round has near perfect weight distribution across the length of the bullet. This creates a round that is unparalleled in accuracy and stability in flight, and is inherently resistant to tumbling even after breaking beneath the super sonic envelope during extended ranges.

The open tip on the face of the round creates a highly streamlined and aerodynamic bullet profile, and is capable of sub-moa accuracy well out to 500 yards and beyond. At velocity of 2,850 feet per second, the Black Hills 69gr 5.56 OTM is nearly capable of triple sonic flight, andd is one of the fastest rounds in its class.

When it comes to dependability and performance, there is truly no higher standard than the Black Hills 69gr 5.56 OTM.

How Does “Free Gun Friday” Work?

We’ve partnered with a different manufacturer for every month of 2019.

For the first Friday of every month, we’ll announce the new giveaway gun. On that day, we’ll open up the sweepstakes for readers to enter and win the gun. We’ll also release our first video on the gun, where you can learn about what you’re entering to win.

On the second and third Fridays of each month, we’ll release two more videos showing the gun in action. Our experts have taken it to the range and run it through drills to make sure it’s ready to rock by the time it gets to you.

Which brings us to the last day of the month when the sweepstakes ends. The next week we will select a winner and send out an email notifying the lucky reader.
