Richard is one of the nicest people to do business with that I've done business with. Plus he knows one helluva lot about bullet construction, performance in the barrel and terminal performance. The last time we exchanged emails he indicated that he "should" have some of the jackets he wanted somewhere about now.
I've been thinking and that's usually a bad thing. I know nothing about the bullet making/jacket procuring process but I wonder why Sierra would want to sell jackets to a competitor thought their markets are vastly different. I thinking of the movie "Tucker".
With the price of copper and lead rising fast, I suppose due to the world wide unrest, there is a shortage of bullet making materials.
After years of trying a bunch of different powders, bullets, primers and brass to get the maximum out of a factory rifle I was surprised in a major way with an APS custom rifle
. The whole process was get the Wildcat bullet that the cartridge was designed for, put the proper amount of powder and primer behind it and go to shooting small groups. Then work up the drop chart and go shoot stuff. Sheese, what fun is that! Thus I purchased only 100 bullets where I should have purchased 500 and I would have had a life time stock on hand.

However, I notice that he didn't include cheap
