Default WTB: .348" Barnes 220gr XFN

I got some coming from Tackelbury but I'd like to find some more. Knowing my luck, It will take me 48 of 50 bullets to develop an accurate load.

Thanks, Dinny

I reload and shoot 348 Win, 358 Win, 6.5 Grendel, 30-06 Springfield, 300 BLK, 44 Mag, 357 Maximum, 9mm, 45 ACP, 45 Colt, 225 Win and 35 Rem

Dinny, I have a box of 50 (+10 extra) of the .348" Barnes 220gr XFN as pictured. Are they like a hollow point? I was wondering since the XFN usually "exploding flat nosed" I thought. Right bullet or wrong bullet?

I may have passed my "Best Before" date but I haven't reached my "Use By" date.

When I run out of bullets I will throw rocks, and I will never run out of rocks.

Those are the ones I'm looking for. In this case, XFN stands for eXpanding Flat Nose. The Win Model 71 was the only mass made rifle chambered in .348 Win. Being a levergun made it necessary to shoot a FN bullet.

Please PM me if you like to sell those bullets. I would like to buy them.

Thanks, Dinny
