Barnes XLC bullets ?

I bought a bunch of these blue coated bullets about a dozen years ago, most people couldn't make them shoot worth a darn, maybe it was just luck but they shot awesome groups out of my son's rifle, he swears by them but found out they are no longer produced and haven't been for a long time and his stash is getting low!!! I'm looking for. 7mm .284, 140 grain if you got some or saw some somewhere let me know, any one else ever use them, good and bad stories !

Re: Barnes XLC bullets ?

I used them, I had good luck getting them to shoot well. Shot an elk with one a bunch of years ago. I just ran out of 7mm 140grs, so if you find to many, Im here for ya. FYI, Ive been trying for the last 5 years or so to find some.

I'm sure I have a box of .308 165gr laying around.They're yours if you want them.

I could never get them to shoot but I've been having good luck with the triple shocks and tipped triple shocks.

Re: Barnes XLC bullets ?

just buy some TTSX you'll get the same performance from them. if it says Barnes on the box you can't go wrong ! Started using them around 1990 and won't use anything else.
