Re: MRX Bullets

Be very patient, they will be a while before anyone sees them on the shelves. Talked to Randy yesterday about them - they are going to be loaded by Federal next year.

I was informed by Barnes that we will see them in March. I can't wait until then. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: MRX Bullets

Anyone have a ballpark idea how much these might go for?

X bullets are already spendy, and the steps necessary to make these bullets don't sound cheap.

On the other hand, if they preform as well as they are preported to, could be worth it for dedicated hunting rigs.

Re: MRX Bullets

Can someone explain the new MRX??

Re: MRX Bullets



My understanding is that the MRX is basicallty a TXS with a polymer tip and a tungston core in the rear the tip aids in airodymaics and the tungston adds weight without the length norminaly associated with the TXS MRX stands for Maximun Range X
