Re: MRX Bullets

I like the concept of the new MRX bullets but it remains to be seen if there is going to be any great improvment over the standard TSX. I reload the TSX now for practice and hunting those bullets are very accurate and flat ass devastating on anything I shoot with them. They will have to show a significant advantage over the standard TSX if they plan on selling alot of the MRX bullets to handloaders. At least that's what I think.

Yeah, I think the only area where they're guaranteed to be significantly better is in their BC's. But that alone would be a welcome improvement for LRH.

Re: MRX Bullets

Reading the article on the XP3 reminded me of the question one of the Sierra tech's is fond of asking callers: "At what point in the animal's death did the bullet fail?"

Re: MRX Bullets

It sounds like it will be about the same size as a non barnes bullet. I mean in lenght. It does sound interesting. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: MRX Bullets

Maximum-Range X-Bullets™

The latest member of the deadly X-Bullet family, the MRX™ features a heavier-than lead tungsten core in its base, along with a Delrin tip. This premium, high-BC hunting bullet is specifically designed to deliver deadly performance at long range.

· Deadly Long-Range Accuracy

· High Ballistic Coefficient

· Flatter Trajectory

· Greater Energy at Long Range

· Complete Penetration

· Double-Diameter Expansion

· Razor-Sharp Cutting Edges

· Full Weight Retention

· Completely Lead-Free

· Available in 20-Bullet Packs

New for 2006, Barnes’ super-premium, Maximum-Range X-Bullet™ is designed for hunters who demand 100-percent reliable performance and one-shot kills at extended distances. The boattail MRX™ bullet combines the best features and deadly killing power of Barnes’ copper Triple-Shock™ X-Bullet with a new Delrin™ tip and a tungsten core.

The denser-than-lead tungsten core moves the MRX bullet’s center of gravity rearward, producing optimum ballistic performance, maximum penetration and the same exceptional accuracy Triple-Shock Bullets are famous for. A heavy tungsten core surrounded by a controlled-expanding all-copper body means game-dropping performance no lead-core bullet can match. Unlike soft lead cores that fragment or squeeze out under pressure, the tough MRX tungsten core retains its shape on impact, maintaining bullet integrity.

Adding a streamlined Delrin tip gives this premium bullet a higher ballistic coefficient (BC), allowing the MRX bullet to deliver flatter trajectory and greater retained energy at long range. Unlike some plastic-tipped bullets, the Delrin-tipped MRX won’t fragment on impact or blow up on game. The MRX bullet provides controlled expansion at both short and long range. The nose of the bullet peels back into four razor-sharp copper petals that resist shearing off. The new bullet typically retains 100 percent of its original weight and delivers the deep-penetrating, bone-smashing power needed for raking shots at large game.

Like the all-copper Barnes-X and Triple-Shock X-Bullets, the new Maximum-Range X-Bullet contains no lead to contaminate venison. The MRX is the X-Bullet to choose when you need to make difficult shots at extreme distances. It’s a super-premium bullet that delivers dependable long-range kills.

Available in Federal Premium Vital-Shok ammunition.
