Barnes 125gr 10mm bullet ( new to me)

  1. It's an excellent bullet, but due to the length of it & corresponding case volume, you won't get anywhere near 135gr Nosler velocities. _The_Shadow has done quite a bit of testing with solid copper bullets, and posted the results here.

    For a better varmint type load, I really like the 9x25 Dillon out of a 6" tube. I think my 124gr XTP's @ 1800fps would be extremely hard to beat for varmints. Fragmentation isn't really a worry with small game like varmints, even coyotes. What I'm really interested to see, is if my 90gr XTP's @ 2050fps have any precision out to 50-100yds, and what that little screamer does to squirrels.

    Yes the all copper bullets are long for their weights, developing loads takes some work...also expensive to play with.

    However for Self Defense or hunting they would be a good choice in my opinion!
