In 1985, Randy Brooks conceived the idea of an all-copper hunting bullet. He began with 10 handmade bullets, and after successful testing, took 20 with him to Alaska in the spring of 1986 to hunt brown bear. The load was a 270-gr. .375 H&H and the bear he took was 9 ft. 6” and a new era in hunting bullets began. Since its handmade beginnings, the X-Bullet has become one of the most popular hunting bullets on the planet and has taken all manner of game. Congratulations to Barnes Bullets for 25 great years!
