Where did the Barnes MRX go?

Can anyone tell me why it is so hard to find the Barnes MRX in .308 these days? I remember when it was still easier to find the Federal Premium ammunition loaded with this round at a reasonable cost. Now it seems difficult to just find the bullet for reloading.

    I saw that round online for sale. Midwayusa does not show what the BC is on it. I assume its 507-511?
