Barnes new MPG frangible bullets
« on: January 11, 2010, 08:18:50 am »
Barnes now offers an all-new bullet featuring Multi-Purpose Green (MPG) technology developed for military and law enforcement applications.
MPG bullets feature a highly frangible, powdered-metal copper-tin core inside a guilding metal jacket. Unlike frangible bullets lacking a protective jacket, MPG bullets remain intact under the rigors of handling, feeding and firing.
This eliminates the primary cause of jammed actions and plugged barrels often experienced when firing frangible ammunition. These open-tip bullets remain intact at ultra-high velocities and extreme rates of spin.
On impact, they deliver explosive fragmentation. Barnes' Multi-Purpose Green bullets are exceptionally accurate.
They're ideal for shooting steel targets, competition, plinking, varmint hunting and home defense. "Green" is military shorthand for "lead-free"--a requirement in military and LE practice environments.

Corbon offer this bullet in loaded ammo.

    added to this relegates them to practice only ammo in my book.  Good, high quality practice ammo, but practice only none the less.

    Barnes makes good stuff.  I've seen what their rifle bullets do first hand on big game.  Impressive.  But I just won't trust frangible ammo with my life.
    This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty. . . . The right of self defence is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction- St. George Tucker, Blackstone's Commentaries
