OCD’ing Yourself Into a Corner

Just a couple of photographs I took recently. I ran into a shooter who was, as I recall, buying Sierra Match bullets and then making them, “more match” by grinding off the OTM (Open Tip Match). I believe his term was, “squaring them up”.

Frankly…I had never heard of such a thing. Thought it was kind of weird and took some photos for posterity. No…that’s not truthful. I thought is was goofy as hell! A little google searching shows that he didn’t pull this idea out of his own butt. Instead it seems there is a OCD support group website that is fronting as a rifle forum.

I can tell you right now, if you ever see a video of me trying to out engineer Sierra by modifying their work, call the cops or the psych ward. Because something ain’t right and I need a welfare check.
