    Barnes all-copper XPB

    I have been hearing a lot of good things about the Barnes all copper bullets. I have never used them though, either in reloads or in factory ammo and was wondering if anyone has used the Barnes all-copper XPB bullets and if so how do they compare to more traditional hollow points or hydro shocks ?

    Do a search for Cor-Bon DPX and you find more info then you can shake a stick at :)

    Cor-Bon and Taurus are the only factory loads that I know of using Barnes bullets at the moment.

    I carry CorBon DPX in my Bersa 380. I haven't used them in a self-defense situation.

    magtech has a solid copper round but the flash was ghastly when i tried some. I don't think it is the same bullet as the DPX though.

    I started a smoldering fire in some dead cedar, I thought it was as accurate as anything.
