Crane power point presentation.

Pictures of these 2 new rounds are on page 21 of 25 in the presentation. Can someone explain to me how the front of a 62 grain OTM is supposed to be a Barrier defeater? It looks like the center of the bullet is hollow or something. These bullets where designed for the SCAR MK16's and MK17's.

Thank you.

Didn't read the rest of the post to notice that it's about a different topic.
