(2) relatively high MVs, affording the bullets a nice flat trajectory. This pays off big in UKD (UnKnown Distances), especially when you have to mill the target to find its distance.
The downside of 6mm in tactical matches are:
(1) light bullets don't provide as much punch down range, important when you need to see your splash or knock over a target for points
(2) unless you are pointing your DTACs, the BCs are a tad lower than 6.5mm.
Net net, 6mm or 6.5mm are the go-to bullets for the tactical precision match scene.
