BARNES 30(.308) 150gr MPG BULLET HPFB LD-FREE 50/bx
Barnes offers bullets featuring Multi-Purpose Green (MPG™) technology developed for military and law enforcement applications. MPG bullets feature a highly frangible, powdered-metal copper-tin core inside a guilding metal jacket.
Unlike frangible bullets lacking a protective jacket, MPG bullets remain intact under the rigors of handling, feeding and firing. This eliminates the primary cause of jammed actions and plugged barrels often experienced when firing frangible ammunition.
The 55-grain 5.56mm (.224) MPG bullet is designed for M4, HK416 and AR-15 type autoloaders and other firearms with rifling twist rates of 1:9” or faster. A 140-grain 7.62mm (.308) version is available for AR-10, SR-25, M40 (Remington 700) and M14 rifles with 1:12” or faster rifling twists. These open-tip bullets remain intact at ultra-high velocities and extreme rates of spin. On impact, they deliver explosive fragmentation.
Barnes’ Multi-Purpose Green bullets are exceptionally accurate. They’re ideal for shooting steel targets, competition, plinking, varmint hunting and home defense. “Green” is military shorthand for “lead-free”—a requirement in military and LE practice environments.

Accuracy Beyond Expectations
By John K.
on Sep 20, 2014
I swapped in a new 308 Winchester barrel on my Remington 700 action based rifle. The barrel is a Pac-Nor 24", 1:10" twist polygonal rifled S.S. Super Match, in the Sendaro contour with a Vais muzzle brake. The barrel uses Pac-Nor's Rem-Nut swapping out with Savage tools. Being that I need to use lead free bullets, I thought it might be a hoot to try the Barnes 150 grain MPG bullet. Loaded over IMR 4064 powder in Nosler cases, and sparked by Remington 9-1/2 primers. Several of these loads shot surprisingly well. So far the best 10 shot group sent 5 into a .5" hole, 3 more opened the group to .650" and two more trigger goofs opened it to .700". For larger varmint or head shots on pigs - they'll do. These bullets follow after the Barnes Varmint Grenade that have proven to be one of the most accurate I use.
