This was the bullet that started it all. Produced by pressure-forming pure copper tubing around a pure lead core, this highly reliable bullet was the first custom bullet available to American handloaders. Introduced in 1939, it was long the favorite of professional hunters who demanded performance they could depend on, each and every time. On impact, Barnes's Original bullets typically expand to more than 200 percent of their original diameter and retain 70 to 90 percent of their original weight.

The Barnes Original is a true hunting bullet generations of sportsmen have relied on.

  • Pure copper tubing jacket
  • Pure lead core
  • Controlled expansion
  • Deep penetration
  • Proven performance

This is not loaded ammunition.

Barnes .377 255 gr original bullet

By JOSEPH C. on Nov 06, 2019
Has bullets touching at 50 yards in my uberti rolling block. At 1500 FPS I can’t wait to see what it does on game. Will update report after. Not as finicky to get a good load as cast.
