Default Really starting to like Barnes!

I've been using Barnes for a couple years in 2 calibers. I decided to expand to .308 and 8x57. My 7mm Rem Mag 140gr and 160gr have been so outstanding in a larger caliber I decided it was time for a look see. I have been buying 140 and 160gr 7mm XFB, which have been been discontinued for close to 2 years. The newer TSX are the same, but I bought a sh!t load at $17.00 per 50 compared to the $34.00 for the TSX. I picked up some .323 160 TSX and 180grTTSX with a 10% discount today. I buy from Barnes direct. My Swede needed some good food! W/ the 180's I should get close to 2700fps. The 160's will be at least 2900. They send all the data you could want also. The .308's are for my BLR81. I figured I should make them count. 150gr TXS. Bad side is I have to shoot to reload. Jeez, most of my loaded brass is 20 years old.

Edit: over $100.00 is free shipping

Freedom Group, Inc., which owns Remington Arms and many other companies, has purchased Barnes Bullets.

I hear they are now going to be called Barnierims!

(okay, I make that second part up)
