    They're certainly colorful. I'm curious about them, but wouldn't go out of my way to find them. However, if I saw a box, I'd probably pick it up for grins.

    Supposed to be very clean, and provide a 7-10% increase in velocity
    with no there changes. Also from what I read they are one of the
    cheaper bullets in Europe. Would like to give them a try for USPSA
    loads---reduce the load and still make power factor.

    And yes---especially the purple ones (for small dinosaurs, you know which
    one) kind of make me grin.

    Clean or not I am not putting a bullet in them GHAY azz colors in my gun.

    I bet your go "Oh Snap girlfriend" when you shoot them.


    Beside the GHAY azz colors. I am not putting a PAINTED bullet in my bore. Sorry unless it is a ceramic coating it is going to leave crap in the barrel I bet even more than a jacketed or cast lead boolit.

    How does it feel to be a legend in your own mind?

    I believe they are polymer coated with moly added for lubrication. Besides, it seems the Cpt seems to know a bit about the alternative lifestyle speak as it were. :rolleyes:

    LOL! I mis-read that as GRAY and thought you had an aversion to MOLY coated bullets tango. :D

    Not your usual spelling of "ghey". ;)

    Sorry

    The Ghay color comment was meant as a joke. My bad.....

    polymer coated would not be my first choice for coating a a bullet. I just don't see how they are cleaner than a copper jacketed bullet or a hard cast bullet. That stuff has to come off in the barrel and will normal solvents like sweets or Hoppes get it out of the bore? I wouldn't think so......








    PS I still think they are GHAY

    I do there is nothing to prove it works and nothing to prove it does anything. It dose how ever add to the diameter of the bullet causing higher pressures (or some I have been told by some bench rest guys).

    Typically they are sized under so when they are coated the diameter is correct.

    i remember seeing a few stores carrying these bullets a few years back....i think they where a BARNES brand...dont know how they shot or what not...but its kinda weird that i havent seen any in a while @ the gun shops around here...i did ask a guy working at one of the local gun stores about them and he said they havent had any for a long time....no1 was buying them,cause of the price and the way they looked....he did say they shot very well in pink colored firearms:D
