Federal Barnes 3" 20 guage tipped slug

does anyone know where one might be able to buy this discontinued ammo?
Since the holding company that owns Remington purchased Barnes, Federal cannot buy the Barnes bullets needed to produce this ammo. It shoots great in my Savage and I would hate to have to start burning ammo to find a repacement. A couple of years ago, it was the only long range slug that would consistently give me under 3 in groups at 200 yds.

    Federal is making their own copper slugs called the Trophy Copper, it is a 5/8 oz slug at 1900fps in a 3 inch. I know its not the same but maybe worth looking into. Hope this helps out.

    I would try accutips, they were the only ones that outperformed Barnes in my gun. That sucks though because I was thinking those would be better for the water buffalo i want to shoot because they are a solid bullet.
