The only way to improve on the design and technology of the X-Bullet was to add something to it. The XLC Coated X-Bullets have been coated with the Barnes high-tech, solid dry film lubricated coating. This coating reduces friction in the bore, reduces fouling for high velocity shooting, reduces heat build up and improves accuracy. This has all the benefits of the X-Bullet and more.
The XLC Coating is a proprietary formula, which is applied wet by state-of-the-art spray equipment, one bullet at a time and cured in an infrared oven. Because of the composition and method used to apply and cure the coating, it will not rub off. The XLC coated bullets will reduce pressures by more than 11% and reduce cleaning time by 37%. Due to the reduction in friction, accuracy is staying consistent for a longer period of time as well as a reduction in cleaning time and frequency. Unlike the other coatings, with Barnes XLC Coated X-Bullets you can expect an increase up to 185 f.p.s. in velocity.
