Reloading Manual #4
The Barnes Reloading Manual Number 4, released in 2008, is a guide for loading Barnes Bullets. Full color illustrations appear throughout the manual, which has a distinctive embossed and debossed cover.
More than 200,000 rounds were fired in testing the loads contained in the manual. Extensive loading data provided covers the full range of Barnes TSX™ hunting bullets now available. Loading data is also offered for the new Barnes Banded Solids™ for dangerous big game, as well as for the extremely popular Varmint Grenade™—a highly frangible varmint bullet developed from military technology.
The new manual features loading data for many recently introduced cartridges, including Winchester’s Short and Super-Short Magnums, .338 Federal and the .375 Ruger. It also contains data for bigbore dangerous game cartridges like the .470 and .500 Nitro Express, .505 Gibbs and .577 Nitro. Extreme-range accuracy loads for Barnes’ .50 BMG bullets are listed for Very High Power shooters.
New load data is also offered for Barnes' greatly expanded selection of XPB™ pistol bullets, including those designed for .460 and .500 S&W revolvers. Recommended loads for Barnes' Expander MZ™, as well as the long-range Spit-Fire MZ™ and TMZ™ muzzleloader bullets appear in a special section.
Customer accounts of Barnes Bullets' performance in the hunting field are included. As a bonus, noted gun writers like Craig Boddington, Sam Fadala and Brian Pearce share their expertise in feature articles.
