    They may be X bullets but they didn't look like it to me.
    They look like they were pulled they might be military. I think I'll have to sacrifice one and cut it in half to see of it has a lead core..thanks for the help
    any starting loads for the Barnes?

    The books I have show nothing for those powders. Do you have any of the standard powders? 3031, 4064, 4895, varget ? Maybe someone else may have a load using what you listed.
