Are Wildcat Bullets No More?

I saw on another site that Wildcat Bullets had gone out of business and just wanted to verify this with folks in the know.


Thanks,

HBB

    My understanding is that Richard sold the business and there's hope that the new owners will carry on. It'd sure be nice to get these bullets up and running consistently.

    How will this affect the guys who shoot the Allen Mag Cartrdiges like the 270 AM and the 7mm AM?

    On the 7mm side, Bob Cautarucio says that this 7mm 189 grain VLDs (used to be 176 grains but he now fills the jacket completely with lead) will hold together up to and beyond 3,300 fps, but the 7mm AM is way beyond 3,300 in velocity.

    Does anyone have leads on who the new owners are and any tentative plans?
