Cool. I've always liked the Barnex-X rifle bullets back in the days when I was still hunting. I remembered Barnes was modifying the X bullet for defensive type of shooting, but never really paid much attention to the new type.

Bear in mind, this bullet and powder combination can probably go quite a bit faster. This was just the starting point.

That's what I liked about the Barnes X bullet - no lead to lose and it takes a lot to fragment the all copper round.
