.348 Winchester Info - eMail From Barnes Tech Support


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Here is an excerpt of what I received:

Barnes-X .348 caliber bullets are made of pure copper (99.9%), not gilding metal. This is the same copper that is used in our new TSX and TTSX bullets. We find that the pure copper gives a better operating window when compared to gilding metal.

Hopefully in the future we can offer a TSX bullet for the 348 Winchester.

To me this is an indication that Barnes does not consider the all copper bullet for a model 71 in .348 caliber as an obsolete item.

I can only hope so. I have about 7 boxes of the old 200 grn X and it shoots and performs great. I only wish I had bought a bunch of the 220 X bullets to go with it. Some TSX's would be a dream.
