Re: Why not Barnes?
Basically, it all boils down to impact velocity requirements to open the bullet. Most of Barnes' bullets require a very high impact velocity to open up reliably in comparison to Accubonds, Mk's, or Ballistic tips which means you need a fire breathing super mag or you have to shoot your animal at relatively close range (by this forum's standards).
The new MRX's show some great long range promise but at over $1 per bullet, I can almost buy 3 accubonds for the same money.
If they can figure out a way to make the MRX's cheaper and if they made them in some heavy-for-caliber weights, I would surely give them a go. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
If it's not far, it's boring.
