We make this bullet ourselves.  It is still in development so there may be some variances from lot to lot. We have pretty much gotten this bullet to where we want it.  It is nearly perfect.  I say nearly because city wastewater requirements mean we don’t currently have a way to polish/degrease this bullet that does not require corn cob.  That means that most of these will have a little bit of corn cob stuck in the tip.  We have the weight and OAL tolerances to near perfect.  I’ve shot a ton of very expensive bullets that were not nearly as consistent as these.  Don’t let the price fool you, these are every bit as good or better than what the competition sells at twice the price.  We are currently working on a wastewater solution so we can wet polish these guys.  We haven’t yet done extensive testing on the BC but you should expect about .320-.335 depending on the velocity you shoot it at.  We would love to get your feedback on long distance BC.

For those of you who have been following this bullet, this bullet was actually the very first product RMR ever planned on making.  We bought the machine an entire year before we ever started making 9mm bullets.  We ran into a ton of supplier and tooling issues over the last 6 years but we are finally sending out the first batch of the best 69 grain BTHP you can buy.  Unfortunately, to get this machine to make a perfect bullet, we have to run it slower.  This means that these bullets will be difficult to keep in stock until we get sane human beings in Washington DC.  Don’t worry, it looks like we finally have a product we are proud of and want to keep making every day.  Thanks for your patience!

  1. Nikki

    These are great bullets and will shoot better than most carbines that’ll be shooting them. Buy with confidence.

  2. mossberg mike

    i was lucky enough to get some of these on the first run RMR had in 12-17. i loaded them with cfe-223 and tac. lc brass and fio primers. most groups were under 3/4 in at 100yds. about 1/2 in with my 20″ match wilson barrel. and just over 3/4 with generic 16 in barrels. they look a lot like a s^^k , i used data from those bullets i loaded before. cant wait for more.

  3. Dave McLaughlin

    Great bullets very accurate and consistent. Very good shipping compared to other sellers. I am a very happy shooter!
    Thanks RMR!!

  4. Jack (verified owner)

    Worked up a load with TAC & LC brass that shot 3/4in 5rd groups and performed well at 500 yds out of a 16in rainier arms barrel. Load dev was very easy and matched data for the other popular 69gr match bullet (but for half the price).

  5. Michael Boling (verified owner)

    Worked well for me LC brass S&B SRP Varget powder Sub moa out to 300 yards hit a 5 inch round out to 600 yards just fine. Man size steel at 700 and 800. 26″ White Oak 1-8 twist AR15 build.

  6. tjrsurf (verified owner)

    Took the standard load of 24.5gr Varget LC Brass at OAL 2.255. Shooting out of a custom build. Used a Wilson Combat 223 Wylde 1:8 Super Sniper Barrel. Getting .75 MOA on first load test. Will tweek a little more. But awesome results first time out ! I just need to keep buying them when they are available.

  7. iflyskyhigh

    These are insanely good mid weight bullets. Defiantly MOA at least. Probably better. I’d love to know if and how they expand cause they shoot lights out in my SD rifles. I have a 14.5″ Colt socom barreled AR, and a 11.5″ BA barreled AR. Both 1:7. Both of these rifles prefer this bullet (by a wide margin) to either the Hornady 75 BTHP or the RMR 75gr Bonded (RMR sold these last year). Zero’d at 50. Shot them at 200. Made a small adjustment. From a bench, little to no wind, 5 shots well inside a painted 2-3″ painted circle on steel at 200. Over, and over, and over, and over again. I also have a 20″ heavy barreled AR built for distance that is a 1:8 and very finicky. Again, lights out with this bullet. Much better than either of the 75gr’s or several of the 62 gr’s I’ve tried. I actually bought 1000 a couple years ago when the first made them and am just now getting around to load development. So glad they are still making them.

    Outstanding bullets, they shoot great in my Ruger American Ranch

  9. Mike Oates (verified owner)

    Outstanding bullets, they shoot great in my Ruger American Ranch. I load them with Shooters World Match Rifle 25grs @2.245 COAL. I would would take them over Sierra Matchkings any day. 1/2″ MOA @100 yards, easily repeatable.

  10. Bill (verified owner)

    Most accurate bullet I’ve ever shot out of my AR-15…and believe me I’ve tried them all. Really no such thing as load development with this bullet, just decide what velocity you want and work up to it because it seems to group sub MOA at pretty much any velocity. Haven’t shot any varmints yet but if it treats a prairie dog like it does a potato the results should be spectacular. It’s so good I’m seriously thinking about re-barreling my .223 Rem bolt action.

  11. Gary J. – Virginia (verified owner)

    25.0 grains Varget fired prone, sling-supported from White Oak service rifle upper reliably held the 10-ring on the 200-yard reduced 600-yard target. 10-ring is 3.79″ Bullets have excellent integrity. Thicker jacket than Hornady 75’s.

  12. Mike (verified owner)

    Awesome Bullets!! I have a savage bolt gun with 1/9 twist this weight is perfect! I can touch holes at 300 all day !

  13. jonathan

    loaded up 200 with a semi-hot load and went to range to sight in. they were shooting 3″ at 25yd. the next day i shot the last 100 with 5 different rifles, and all five shot ~1/4 at 25 yards. Bullets were fine, one barrel just hated the load. haven’t shot any further that 25yd yet, but will update when i do.

  14. Kevin Wright (verified owner)

    Am now about 2/3 through my first purchase of 500 of these and will be ordering more.
    Shooting these in a Box Stock Savage model 10 223, 22″ barrel with 1:9 twist. Loading with both TAC and Benchmark powders and consistently getting 3/4″ groups @ 200yds. Next will be some testing to 300yds.

    Great performance and a great value. Been telling everyone at the range what these are!

  15. Bart Hansen

    Loaded these in my 22-250 AI at 3500 fps. My friend was spotting for me at 100 yds. First shot looked good but we could not find shots 2 and 3 anywhere on the target, What the Hell was going on here. I thought maybe they were flying all over due to my Bartlien barrel having a 1-12 twist. On closer examination the lost bullets were all going through the same hole. Unbelievable for sure especially with the slow twist. Apparently speed can make up for twist rate. I continue to shoot this load on steel out to 550 yds with ease. Hitting the occasional golf ball at 330 yds.
    Cheaper than the green box. GET SOME! You won’t be sorry. My Rock River AR-15 20in heavy barrel loves these bullets too.

  16. Larry (verified owner)

    Spectacular on ground squirrels.
    Same load I use for SMKs. 24.5gr of Varget. COAL is critical to accuracy.

    It sounds as though these should hold up for antelope hunting. That’s really interesting news….

  17. Justin C. (verified owner)

    I load these with 25 grains of varget at 2.25 coal and my 20″ White oak spr shoots them into a 3/8″ 5 shot group at 100 yards. I’m getting sd’s in the single didgits and extreme speeds consistently under 20 fps.

  18. Geoff Nix

    Turned my ar into a laser beam. Thank you for the hard work at rmr.

  19. Ron Miggo (verified owner)

    Shot across the course match today 200 reduced iron sight 1 in 7 twist. RMR 69 shot great 485 16x out of 500 clean at rapid sitting 198 10x slow prone, would have been 199 forgot to take off the 3/4 min I put on for rapid fire on the first shot. First time loading them no load development 24.2 varget 2.258 oal shooting sub moa buying more

  20. Chris Klein (verified owner)

    These shoot great! loaded for 3-gun so haven’t run them past 300 yards. Tight groups. look forward to trying them on pests to see how they expand.

  21. William Bilotta

    I shoot nra high power service rifle and typically use Sierra 69 grain bullets for two and three hundred yards. I loaded 50 rounds of the RMR 69 grain bullets on top of 23.3 grains of 8208XBR powder and shot at 300 yards yesterday. My score was 393 with 16 X’s. The seven points I dropped were my fault. I am thoroughly impressed with these bullets. I had to adjust my seating die a little bit as these are a little more blunt near the top than the Sierras are and they shot great out of my Krieger 20″ barrel with a CLE chamber. I will definitely be stocking up on these.

  22. Mauricio (verified owner)

    Great bullets. Loaded them for 223/5.56 and 224 Valkyrie using load data for those other 69 grainers. Sub moa through 3 rifles. Stock up, don’t hesitate to buy.

  23. Chris springmeyer (verified owner)

    .375 MOA out of my 18″ 1:8 Larue .223. Your order fulfillment comes with with hand written thank you note each time I get one and I should really be thanking you. Couldn’t hope for any better than that even from the competitor. Spot on guys. Keep em coming and I’ll shoot em. Never had anything from RMR I didn’t like. RMR 135 MW for my 9mm and RMR 69 BTHP for my 223 is all I need to fill my reloading reserves for those calibers. Start making RMR 45s and 458s and I’d buy those too. Buy with confidence. Buy a lot.

  24. Bill (verified owner)

    These bullets arrived very quickly to me. Fast shipping.
    They perform just like the Sierras of the same weight.

  26. Keegan (verified owner)

    Have great luck with these on a 24″ 1:8 twist gun. They have liked being loaded hot and also downloaded for cheaper target activities. Really happy with these out to 600 yards

  27. Frank Jelenko (verified owner)

    In the 300 or so bullets tested, have gotten some very nice groups with both 2520 and Shooters World Match.
    Currently using these for practice. Need to see if there are any uncalled flyers from time to time before committing to using in matches.

  28. Bobby Simpson (verified owner)

    Started using this bullet for my daughter starting out in high power. Works great for her at 200-300 yards. Thinking about switching to these for my own 200 yard reduced matches.

  29. Curtis Winward (verified owner)

    Outstanding accuracy. Shot a 0.534 MOA 5-shot group at 100 yards out of a 20″ 1 in 8 twist .223 Wylde Wilson Combat Super Sniper AR-15 barrel with Alliant AR-COMP as the propellant.

  30. Tim Branagan (verified owner)

    Shot very well. Loaded to test reloading procedures (anneal vs not, trimmed vs not), ended up getting good accuracy for rifle (16″ BB AR). Shot MOA at 100 yards. Suspect with Varget, and load development can get better. Very consistent, no flyers. Shot steel out to 600 yards and performed very well (only miss was on me). Compares very favorably to other 69 grain bullet I’ve used, at much better price.

  31. LARRY BEARDSLEY (verified owner)

    Our club is loading for a group of Junior shooters and the only thing that a flock of Juniors can go through quicker than groceries is ammunition. Over the summer each of our Juniors shot about 800 rounds in practice and matches – close to 2500 rounds total.

    We worked up a good load of WC-842 (our batch was 23.4 grains)and we verified the loads with several of our High Master shooters at 200 and 300 yards- our range limits. The High Masters (including a Distinguished Rifleman and a State Champion) declared that the load/bullet combination was as good as their worked-up match loads out to 300-yards.

    We had to switch to WC-844 for 2022 (it looks like about 24 grains to get back to the sweet spot) – but we wil continue to use RMR 69-brain for all of our 200 and 300-yard practice and match competition. Out at 500 and 600 we will go to a heavier bullet, but that won’t be often. RMR will be our bullet of choice for this next year – probably close to 5000 rounds with our new shooters.

  32. Hcnfan

    Great bullet! Borrowed some from friend to see if I’d like them. Loaded and shot. Great accurate bullet. Easy load workup.

    **Would buy a .264 version of this bullet by the thousands, FOR SURE!!

  33. fwrrhpdirector (verified owner)

    We did accuracy testing for our 2022 Junior load and you can read the full story here:

    A quick summary: At 100 yards, five 5-shot groups from five shooters all fell into an X-ring dispersion.

    If you can’t hit it with these bullets, it’s not the bullet’s fault…..

  34. Harold Wethington (verified owner)

    Loaded up a ladder series and went to the range. Fourth series put 4 shots in the same hole with a “flyer” that opened the group up to 1/2″. The worst group of the series was 1″. In short, these are fantastic! A must have for a 1/7 twist barrel.

  35. Mike C. (verified owner)

    These projectiles shoot lights out from both of the 14.5″ SR-15’s I own. Average group size is right under an inch at 100 yards and they hold MOA out to 600 yards which is as far as I have been able to shoot them due to range restrictions. These projectiles make shooting reduced sized steel to 600 yards child’s play. I’ve run these over AR-COMP, BL-C(2), and H335 all with more than satisfactory results so they aren’t finicky with various powders from what I’ve seen. Additionally, I’ve gotten the velocities as high as 2,710 FPS from 14.5″ guns but these projectiles seem to shine in the 2,630 fps range. SD for this velocity/Load with H335 was 4.5 which is incredibly consistent.

    Buy with confidence folks RMR is a great company, they’ve made a projectile that is exceptional and rivals many of the more expensive ones. No need to pay double! I’ve been a long standing customer and will continue to be loyal to RMR as they’ve been great in every way. By the way, if you love these projectiles as much as I do check out their 124 JHP Multi purpose rounds if you haven’t already. They are fantastic as well. RMR, you all knocked it out of the park with these. PLEASE make something like this in the 103’ish-108 grain weight for .243, so I can get the costs down on my 6 ARC and still keep shooting tiny groups.

  36. Fred (verified owner)

    I have a 1-9″ twist that likes them and a 1-8″ twist that doesn’t. Good duplicate of the ever famous SMK.

    • Jacob Wilcox

      I’ve found that my 1-8″ prefers a shorter seating depth. You might try going short with them.

  37. PJ Jones (verified owner)

    Ordered some over the summer and have tested them compared to SMK. Group size, velocities, and SDs are comparable. I think this is going to be a good bullet. Will order again.

  38. Pat Jones (verified owner)

    I did a comparison between these and 69 SMK. They were very similar in SD, ES, and velocity. Groups were very comparable as well. I did wet tumble them to remove some media on them before testing. I think this bullet is going to be great

  39. shootem

    How bout a question instead. Anybody shot coyote sized critters or bigger? How’d that work out?

  40. Steve Arnett (verified owner)

    These shoot as good or better than your competitors 69 gr. CFE or Varget doesn’t make any difference. 1 in 8 or 1in 7. And not to mention the price!

  42. Daniel Haggar (verified owner)

    These don’t shoot worth a darn in my 223 match service rifle using CFE223 and TAC. Was hoping these would be comparable to a 69 Sierra MK, but not even close. Disappointing. Not near as accurate as some of RMR’s jacketed pistol bullets.

  43. Mr. Painless

    I obtained some of these from a fellow shooter, and loaded to mag length, Rem 7 1/2 primers, and 26.0 grn. of CFE-223, shot consistent .7 MOA. This from a 20″ WOA match rifle( 1/7), with irons.
    With no wind and at 600 yds, shot a 22 round group of .81 MOA.
    About to order as much as my CC allows.
    If this won’t shoot well in your rifle of correct twist, play with seating depth. If you still can’t get these to group, you need a new barrel, or scrutinize your loading and/or shooting techniques.
    I’ve been loading 5.56 for decades, and it’s fall-off-a-log easy to make a decent, accurate load.
    These bullets, and more importantly, RMR’s excellent service, are incredible.
    Jake, you satisfy a very real need in the shooting world, and I thank you personally for it. Please extend my thanks and gratitude to all your employees , for they surely take pride in their work!

  44. Mac (verified owner)

    I use these for 100-300-yd CMP Service Rifle shooting through a 1/7″ twist White Oak barrel. While I’ve also improved with a new coat and practicing more in general, I am having the highest scores I’ve ever done shooting these bullets. They are absolutely top notch. My last 50-round match had my best score ever at 490-22X. Everyone wanted to know what bullet I was using. They all wrote down RMR’s website. Will we ever see RMR in-house heavier .22s, and 6.5mm and .30-cal bullets, please?!
