    Default What BARNES .416 Caliber 325 gr. "X" Bullets be used For Alaska???

    Is there an application for BARNES .416 Caliber 325 gr. "X" Bullets in Alaska.........??? As I recall I don't think they have a crimping groove.

    Is this the original "X" bullet? I'm not aware of a TSX or TTSX offering in a .416 325 grain.

    I can't imagine an AK animal that could shake off a 325 grain X should that strike your fancy. I've crimped the original X and the XLC using a Lee Factory Crimp die with much success. The TSX and TTSX are more crimp tolerant using any of the rings as a crimp ring.

    Yes, I believe they are the "Original" Barnes line of "X" bullets. I have about two or three hundred. Any rough idea of there value........???

    They're "worth" about $30 to $40 a box, but as always, that's subject to someone being willing to buy them. Similarly, I have a boatload of .338 X's, both original and blue, but I'll probably have them forever as there isn't much of a market for them.

    I don't know how many is in a box but I'd expect to pay around a buck a piece for them.

    Yup. Since my last post I looked at my inventory and the last price tag (some 12 years ago) shows I paid $49 for the .338's, so I was a bit low.
