The big news is that they're now making preloaded ammunition that features some of their bullets that up until now could only be reloaded. Pricing will be competitive with Federal Premium Ammunition.

The Safari line has solids that have the same ballistics as the matching rounds with Vor-TX bullets. I didn't walk away with the understanding that I would like to have, so I may contact them this week to get more information if there's interest.

The reason for the identical weight-bullets is so safari hunters can just use one POA, etc. Also means that, for game like Cape Buffalo, an expanding round can be fired, backed up with solids.

Barnes will now also be offering lead-core gilded match bullets.

"Unleaded." Clever advertising :)
