I posted this info in the reloading section in an effort to provide some specs for the bullets...
I had wrote Barnes about acquiring a few samples of the bullets listed below to study their physical characteristics, because I knew that the solid copper bullets where longer that the lead core counter parts...Below is the measured data of the samples received. I must commend Barnes Bullets and thank them for these very nice bullets...

Barnes Bullets (samples)

TAC-XP FB 140 grain pn# 40005 10mm/40S&W 0.400”
Total Length 0.680” Dia. 0.400” (Hornady 200XTP has Total Length 0.680”)
(While not the same weight they are same length)
