Default Barnes Making Shotgun Slug Ammo

Just saw this, maybe Vista (new owners of Remington Ammo) dropped Barnes.......If true I will try them, as I love Barnes from my muzzleloader as much as I love the Accutips from my 220

As promised ....

Spoke to them around 3pm, the gentleman informed me that production should start between late January mid February and maybe available at retailers by early spring if all goes well.

I asked is this a indication that Remington is dropping the Barnes bullet, and he said they are hearing yes and no, but being that Vista just took control of Remington they haven't gotten a straight answer as of yet, so as of this date it's 50/50.

He did say the Barnes shells and the Remington shells are exactly the same load/ballistics, the only difference between the two will be the 12ga shells for Barnes is blue and Remington is the classic green, and the tips of the bullet for Barnes will be blue as the Remington is gold/yellowish

I did ask, these bullets for both Barnes and Remington which Barnes product is it, and he said it's the same as the Barnes T-EZ muzzleloader bullet
