Good to know. I might try some out on pigs first. I've also heard from some guys on AR that absolutely hate the barnes "X" bullets, and I've heard from others that swear by them. I guess I'll just have to see for myself. Thanks for the help fellas. Thumbs up

I think most people that hate any bullet, used it improperly or, in the case of the Barnes, not at all. I have never used the Barnes but it's a no brainer that a solid copper bullet is not coming apart. I have wondered about it opening and there have been reports I trust where it didn't. But, even if a bullet doesn't open, if it's well placed in the vitals and penertates, it'll do the job.

Seen a few 5 gallon buckets ( at meat processors) filled with beat up partitions--Funny thing was that they all came out of dead Moose or boo--that says something---

So all the Nosler partitions are saved in five gallon buckets, The Cor loks have their own buckets etc etc.
My question is this: How do you Tell the difference.?? Think Think

Right--we always count each bucket after season is over--BWAAA-I was only pointing out that whilst many arm chair hunters blast(pun) at partitions --they do the job- not many folks in AK that I knew used core lokts and most didn't buy factory stuff either--Heck i ain't a stats guy anyway--Use what ever you like--

Good grief Hammer. Everyone knows the corelocks are in the bucket on the right! Laugh

The buckets were probably full with core lokts. Both buckets! Thumbs up
