Barnes Bullets announced the addition of a .270 caliber bullet to the company’s LRX line of component bullets. The new bullet is 129 grains and will retail for $39.46 for a box of 100 bullets.
The LRX line of component bullets are designed for long range hunting. The bullets are made of 100% copper and feature a blue polymer tip. The polymer tip improves the ballistic coefficient of the bullet and helps to improve expansion – while still achieving deep penetration. Barnes states the expansion doubles the bullet’s original diameter.
All of the bullets in the LRX line have a long profile and a boattail design. The all-copper design avoids any problems with hunting in areas where lead ammunition has been banned.
Other calibers in the LRX line include 6.5 mm, 7mm, .30 caliber and .338 Lapua.
