What is an OTM bullet and how does it differ from others like the Trophy Bonded Tip?

Open tip match (OTM) rifle bullets are typically used for shooting targets at the range. The slender, streamlined bullets feature a copper-alloy jacket with a hole at the nose through which the lead core is poured during the manufacturing process. The result is a highly consistent, accurate projectile. However, unlike true hollow-points and bullets like the Trophy Bonded Tip, OTMs are not designed to offer controlled expansion, penetrate the target or retain a given percentage of their weight, making them a poor choice for hunting.
