Re: 7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner

Thanks, I didn't make a profit but I saw someone bought some, a 100 lot at Graf's (.60 free shipping) but they had a limited supply, and now another lot of 500 available by MidSouth at .60 + or - shipping if they charge it? I'd buy it at that price, but who knows. The stuff does get in short supply. I still have 150 extra from the original 2000, but I am going to keep it as I'll use.

I did however email my wholesaler and I trust him and he can get volume, here's what he wrote me:

Ed,

Prices must have dropped for some reason with the April Wholesaler catalog. I have not recieved mine yet for some reason but expected prices to increase. I always check Graf's retail price before I price anything, they are my guideline that I beat.

Sorry, I though we were doing the right thing ordering pre new price. Maybe thats why catalog is running late, it usually is here before the quarter ends.

Sorry, I am upside down on some also.


John

I'd give his last name but out of courtesy i wouldn't want to embarrass him in any way. I learned something, but I believe he sells them to me with little profit. It will be interesting to see where prices go this year. Now I know to check 2 other sources, Graf's, Midsouth and I always look at Midway, Cabela's and Bruno's.

I hope this clears any confusion.

Ed

Let me know though, I will call my wholesaler and give him hell. But I'd like to know the net cost. You're and talking around .60 per case without shipping. That's the lowest I've ever seen. Someone bought a small lot last week I read at the same price, from Graf's so it's important to me as I will be buying again this year.
It looks like the shipping to me would be $12.92 for a total of $305.48 (brass with shipping).

So the cost per case would be .61 cents.

That's an awesome price.

I paid a total of $387.33 at Natchez for 500, so the cost was .77 cents per case.

I guess I should have waited.

Any of you guys used these loads? What's the black coating on the bullets? Looks and feels like teflon........I'm concerned that it will foul my bbl. and be hard to remove. I don't do moly and have no desire to get into coated bullets.

Should I just pull the bullets and salvage the brass??

Thanks,
Jim
Its Lubalox not teflon....IMO one of the best bullets I have ever shot .....its a coated Nosler BT and it wont foul the barrel like teflon will ........you can shoot them with no worries
