Gregg Sloan and Mitchell Kukson from Barnes Bullets join me on the show today. Gregg manages the Barnes Ballistics lab and R&D department and Mitchell is the lead R&D engineer at Barnes, so they both know a whole lot about Barnes bullets and ammunition. Today we talk about the history of Barnes, the details of the various bullets they offer, the ins and outs of their factory ammunition offerings, and some of their new products for 2023. 

Learn more about Barnes on their web site.
