    I would try Aftab at Reloading Solutions near Oxford or Brownells UK if I were you

    Look on arms24.com and Alpinhunting.com both stock Barnes and will post to your door. I've used both and had good experiences apart from one order from Alpinhunting which didn't turn up but got a full refund.

    .375 banded solid 300gr were discontinued by Barnes some time ago along with some other potentially 'armor piercing' bullets

    Dear Customer:
    There has been speculation regarding certain component and ammunition products within the
    shooting community. The purpose of this letter is to inform our valued customers of the status of
    Barnes Banded Solids’ availability as components, and in Barnes VOR-TX Safari ammunition.
    In October 2011, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (“ATF&#8221 classified
    twelve individual Barnes Banded Solid projectiles as armor piercing ammunition. Following
    these classifications, Barnes submitted individual “exemption request” petitions to ATF. If the
    petitions are approved, the projectiles will be removed from the statutory definition of armor
    piercing ammunition, and therefore Barnes will have clearance to continue manufacturing and
    selling these projectiles.
    As of today’s date, ATF has not ruled on any of the petitions requesting the removal of the
    Banded Solid projectiles from the statutory definition of armor piercing ammunition.
    Accordingly, the following eleven Banded Solid projectiles (currently listed in the 2012 Barnes
    Catalog) are subject to exemption requests that are pending with ATF. Please note that Barnes is
    not pursuing an exemption for the .223 caliber Banded Solid projectile at this time. The .223
    caliber Banded Solids are not listed in the 2012 Barnes catalog or on the Barnes website:
    25 Cal 243 Cal 264 Cal 270 Cal
    284 Cal 308 Cal 338 Cal 375 Cal
    410 Cal 458 Cal (45-70) 458 SOCOM
    While we await determination from ATF on these calibers, and in compliance with the original
    classification by ATF, the projectiles listed above will not be available for purchase from Barnes.
    However, if and when the exemption requests are approved, the projectiles at issue will become
    available for purchase at that time.
    We are confident that most, if not all, of our removal requests with ATF will be successful, and
    that we will soon be able to provide these calibers to our hunting and sport-shooting customers
    around the world. In the meantime, we will be happy to answer questions regarding these
    projectiles and/or the VOR-TX Safari ammunition loaded with these projectiles. Please note the
    Banded Solids components and VOR-TX Safari ammunition products loaded with Banded
    Solids not included in the aforementioned calibers (e.g. 416, 470 and 500) and TSX bullets are
    not subject to the current armor piercing classification and continue to be available for purchase.
    We at Barnes recognize the inconvenience caused by lack of access to the appropriate products
    for individual sporting or hunting purposes. We will continue to aggressively seek immediate
    resolution to this issue, and inform our customers as further information is provided by ATF.
    Please refer to www.barnesbullets.com/products/rifle/banded-solids/ for future updates.
    We look forward to your continued business and wish you the best in the New Year.

    Hi Graham
    Any idea what solids I can use now as I have the 300grain tsx and wanted the solids to match as I have been informed that they shoot at the same point of aim?

    Hi Tony,

    Nosler do a 300gr solid if that helps?

    SD is identical to the Barnes at 0.305 but BC is slightly lower at 0.300 compared to 0.308 for the Barnes - enough to worry about from that cannon?
