I know we hate barnes for what they did, but look at the bigger picture. If we let the ATF get away with doing this to Barnes, then They will do this to Hornady, Nosler, and any other bullet maker they choose one company at a time. When we can't buy bullets then what will we do? the object here isn't to stand up for barnes per se but to put the ATF in check. The said that the banded solid would pierce armor. You do realize that a Hornady super shock tip will go through the same stuff with relative ease. they are not talking about a r550 plate steal, they are talking about the stuff that was only meant to stop pistol rounds. before long the nosler accubond then trophy bonded bear claw. then they will ban archery equipment because an arrow fired from a compound bow will go through a police issue balletic vest if the officer isn't wearing a trauma plate. In order to fight the bigger fight, I am willing to put Barnes' transgressions on the back burner for the time being. We can go back to cussing them when our gun rights are safe.
One word: KHARMA I think I will hold protests and rallies and help them out as much as they have helped us out over the years...........Okay, all done, now back to my regular schedule.

Very true and understood, BUT, I did not tell them to invest their money by buying a company that single hanededly screwed every sportsman in this state!!! Who ever is in charge of researching their investments should be looking for a job. When you purchase a company you assume all their claims, liabilities, and reputation. And B....S bullets has an unforgivable reputation in my eyes, no matter who owns it. I am sorry for the investors, but not sorry enough to quit making my statement felt about ANY company that pulls a stunt like this, no matter who owns it, now or then. I do not "hate" Remington, they had nothing to do with original catastrophe, I do however hate their new B....S bullet division and what their reputation has stood for. They should have changed the name at the very least, but they didn't, so I guess it did not bother them what the previous company did. But it still bothers me, always will. Remington made a bad business deal (as far as I am concerned). They don't need to apologize to anyone for that, but in the same token, I shouldn't have to apologize to them for not supporting the company with "that name" did and for not buying bullets with "that name" on them.
The problem is that the Freedom Group, Inc. who is the parent company of Remington Arms bought Barnes out in January of 2010.
