240 gr Sierra MK

Since the place I work is a distributor for Sierra, I decided to try some of these in my 300 RUM. That is until after the lady that does our ordering called and informed that they were $160 a box [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]!!!! We get some decent discounts but even w/the discounts they were over $100 for 100 bullets!!!!

Richard: I know you'll read this @ some point. I guess that's what I get for not being loyal. If nothing else it sure gave me an appreciation for what your doing. I know you'll make me a better bullet @ less than half the price [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]!!!

Yo Bill,

Isn't that for 500????

BTW ya otta move up from that 300 PWM (peckerwood magnum[img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]) up to a 338 then you could shoot some of Richards 252s. Pretty awesome.

I'm kinda feeling sorry I don't have one of those 270AMs but there is something in the works that is more to my needs at the moment. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

The $160 price that you're looking at is for a box of 500 not 100.
Midway USA

If you can buy a 500ct box for just over a $100 that sounds like a pretty good deal to me. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: 240 gr Sierra MK

Maybe next time I'll do a little research before I stick my foot in my mouth [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img].

If I was to order 500 of these little jewels, would anyone want some if they would not shoot in my gun?

Re: 240 gr Sierra MK

That would be great!! Of course I'll probably just find out they work well and then I'll be out of them [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img].

It will give me a good opportunity to use the Pressure Trace system for load developement though. Send me an email bailey1474@hotmail.com and we'll hash out the details.

Thanks,
B.J.
