My understanding is that OTM = Tactical and that this is a hybrid ogive bullet (look at my crappy sideways pic on last page. Box says "OTM Tactical Hybrid"). From what I have read, they have a thicker jacket and thus conceptually don't open as well. If my memory serves, Bryan Litz posted on this sight explaining the difference (the jacket thickness increase is minor, but strength/toughness is cubed?). For hunting they recommend the Elite Hunter in its place...
That said, there are lots of threads on this site making the case that the OTM gets it done on big game. Some very credible, some maybe less so...
I have no on-game experience (yet)
