Barnes VOR-TX Handgun Hunting Ammunition

posted on February 2, 2012

Barnes Bullets’ new VOR-TX handgun hunting ammunition line features its 99.95-percent-pure copper X-Pistol Bullets (XPB), which, due to their composition, exhibit 100-percent weight retention and consistently deep penetration.

Full expansion of the hollow-point bullets is typically double-diameter, and the nose sections form six distinct petals-both characteristics that enhance wounding capabilities. The three loads currently available are: 140-grain, .357 Mag.; 225-grain, .44 Rem. Mag.; and 200-grain, .45 Colt. Price: $23 to $25.
