View Bullet-Making Process on TV

American Rifleman Television features Barnes Bullets this week. Managing Editor Chad Adams went to visit the Barnes operation in Utah. The broadcast shows how the Brooks family transformed a basement operation into one of the most advanced bullet-making operations in the world. Among the many Barnes bullets of interest to precision shooters and varminters are the Barnes Varmint Grenade, and the just-released MPG bullet. Lead-free MPG bullets feature a frangible, powdered-metal copper-tin core inside a guilding metal jacket. “MPG” stands for “Multi-Purpose Green”. “Green” is military shorthand for “lead-free”—a requirement in military and LE practice environments. California also recently passed legislation banning lead-core bullets in thousands of acres of hunting lands. Barnes’ MPGs may be just what California hunters need.

Also in this week’s American Rifleman TV episode, Editor-In-Chief Mark A. Keefe, reviews the Blaser F3, a high-end over-under shotgun built to exacting European standards. Part of MidwayUSA and Outdoor Channel’s “Wednesday Night On The Range” lineup, “American Rifleman Television” airs each Wednesday at 10 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. The show repeats on various days and times throughout the week.

Barnes offers a FREE DVD, called “Bullet Myths Busted”. This video tackles popular misconceptions about bullet performance and unmasks false claims. The DVD shows the explosive effects of the Varmint Grenade bullet and exclusive high-speed video compares hunting bullet expansion and penetration.
