Barnes Banded Solid Bullets feature rings cut into the shank to reduce pressures and allow higher velocities. These bullets have a wider meplat and are designed to penetrate large, dangerous game without deflection, even when striking heavy bone. Constructed of homogenous metal throughout, they do not have a lead core or jacket to separate on impact.Weight-matched with TSX Bullets of the same caliber, Banded Solids can be interchanged with expanding bullets without varying point of impact. These bullets are coated with Barnes XLC solid dry film lubricant. This is not loaded ammunition.
