Barnes loaded this cartridge with a heavy 69 grain bullet. Sure, its muzzle velocity is comparably slower, but so hefty a bullet’s resistance to wind drift means you’ll be able to put a hole wherever a hole needs putting. The jacketed hollow point bullet’s thin, concentric jacket enhances rotational stability to promote even better accuracy, and its tapering boat tail base helps the bullet to conserve more momentum and hit harder downrange. Once that projectile’s nose cavity fills up with flesh, it’s going to produce massive terminal expansion that no varmint or predator’s ever going to fully recover from.
Barnes loads lots of copper bullets, but just to be sure this round’s JHP BT does have a solid lead core. This ammo is brass-cased and Boxer-primed – just as non-corrosive as it is reloadable. Barnes has not yet released this cartridge’s muzzle velocity, but they have disclosed that its G1 ballistic coefficient is 0.339.
