Description

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!!

    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.

    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

    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.
