Meplat is a term for the small blunt tip of a bullet or projectile. Most traditional Open Tip Match (OTM) style bullets have a small opening at the very end of the meplat, which allows for air to gather in flight and create air pocket which fills in the missing point in a perfect geometric shape, increasing the BC of the bullet. This is optimized by the point being as small as possible, such as with our Meplat Reduction Technlogy we use with our Long Range Hybrid Target bullets.
