Hodgdon didn't develop the CFE line, General Dynamic did for military reasons. Newer lead free projectiles were causing excess copper fouling the older FMJ with exposed lead base didn't.

Barnes bullets had nothing to do with it, people just aren't running those solids through their hunting barrels the same way a military machinegun is pushing through ammo.

But, for a lot of folks it's a dang good improvement that helps with barrel maintenance.
