Since its introduction in 1989, the Barnes X-Bullet has been praised by gun writers and professional hunters as the most deadly and reliable hunting bullet available. Designed by Barnes' owner Randy Brooks, the X-Bullet is a solid copper projectile, heat-treated for extra toughness. There's no separate jacket and no lead core. The bullet holds together for deep, dependable penetration every time. A deep, forward cavity causes the nose to peel back in four separate, razor-edged petals. Viewed head-on, the appearance of these four petals gives the X-Bullet its name. This bullet's unique construction eliminates concentricity problems and provides true match-grade accuracy. The X-Bullet out-penetrates other hunting bullets and has developed a reputation for delivering quick, one-shot kills on a wide variety of game. This is a Bullet or Projectile only, NOT loaded ammunition. This is used for reloading and does not include powder, primer or cartridge case.
