In a word, yes.

OTM= Open Tip Match, commonly used to refer to the Hornady match bullets, but really applies to most "HP" type precision bullets, inlcluding the Sierra Match King (AKA: SMK) and Nosler versions.

Generally not the same kind of hollow point that you find in handgun ammo, as the "open tip" of the match rounds has more to do with how the bullets are formed, than with its expansion or fragmentation.

Yes they will stabilize. OTM and BTHP are one in the same.

I shoot BH 68 grain heavy match as well as PMC and BH 69 grain Sierra Matchkings quite well from my 16" chrome lined 1/9. Groups were 1 moa or better at 300 yards.

1/10 is a slower twist than 1/9.

1/9 = 1 complete revolution or twist in 9 inches.

It will shoot the 68/69 bullets.
