As I said in my review, the Barnes 110 grain offering in 300 AAC Blackout is about as perfect as you can get for hunting. But Barnes isn’t happy with mere perfection, and they’re looking to expand their lineup in 300 BLK by adding a 120 grain flavor in addition to the existing 110. They claim it will have a better profile for improved long-range accuracy, and hopefully we’ll be able to get some here shortly to put that claim to the test. Make the jump for their presser . . .
Mona, UT – As the industry’s leading supplier of 300 AAC Blackout ammunition and bullets for reloaders, Barnes Bullets, LLC (“Barnes”) is proud to announce a new 120 grain offering in addition to the current 110 grain TAC-TX™ in VOR-TX™ Ammunition and component lines. The new products will be made available in February, 2014.
