Barnes Bullets


BARNES ORIGINAL This was the bullet that started it all. Produced by pressure-forming pure copper tubing around a pure lead core, this was the first custom bullet available to American handloaders. Introduced in 1939, it was long the favorite of professional hunters. On impact, Barnes’s Original bullets typically expand to more than 200 percent of their original diameter and retain 70 to 90 percent of their original weight.

TRIPLE-SHOCK TSX The TSX has become Barnes’ most popular hunting bullet and gained recognition as one of the deadliest, dependable bullets. These all-copper bullets have the added benefits of lower fouling, accuracy, greater velocity and lower pressure.

TIPPED TRIPLE-SHOCK T-TSX Barnes has improved the design by adding a streamlined polymer tip. The new Tipped TSX features the same 100-percent copper body with multiple rings cut into the shank. It delivers the same accuracy and performance- but with an added polymer tip that boosts ballistic coefficiency and improves long-range ballistics. The tip and a re-engineered nose cavity provide even faster expansion. · 100% lead-free · Grooved for lower pressures · Higher ballistic coefficient · Deadly accuracy · 99-100% weight retention

VARMINT GRENADE Based on a design Barnes developed for military applications, the hollow-cavity, flat-base bullet features a copper-tin composite core surrounded by a guilding-metal jacket. This accurate bullet remains intact at ultra-high velocities, while its core fragments explosively on impact, vaporizing even at long range. Expending its energy early, the Varmint Grenade seldom exits large predators, leaving valuable pelts virtually undamaged.
