I didn't know the company had new owners. I thought it was really weird that a company that went to such trouble to force no lead bullets on us would turn around and try to sell us a lead bullet. Personally I will stick to my Nosler custom competition bullets when its time to hunt paper. Since I'm on the subject I heard that Noslers lead free varmint bullets hit like the hand of God when you push'em hard. When I get the chance to hunt the Carrizo plain I'll load some up and see what happens
Same company, new owners = New painted leopard, same old spots. Why in the world anyone would support a company that has caused irreversible damage is WAY beyond me. I don't care if they offered to give me lead core bullets for free for the rest of my life, it still will not help the damage already done by them. Don't get me wrong, I don't "hate" barnes bullet co (I refuse to respect them by capitalizing their name), HATE IS WAY TO NICE A WORD!!!

I think the reason is that, unless you are a regular on these boards, you would have no clue that they are one of the reasons for the regulations. I've never seen anything mentioned elsewhere on it (other than here and Calguns), and until I read it here - I had no clue myself. Now I trust John when he says thats the way it went down, but I've not yet seen the evidence of their guilt, though I'm sure it exists. I have seen numerous statements going several years back by Barnes denying the allegations though.

And you expected what else from them? That's like saying our president says he has a birth certificate. What do you expect them to say? "Yes, we screwed every California sportsmen, but we apologize for it". I guess I take it for granted and just assume everybody followed what happened. Sorry if I come off strong or as an azz, by no means intended, it just works me up quick when I remember what they did. Apologies for that again. I just hate to see anyone support that company, no matter who owns it. One word for that company, UNFORGIVABLE.
