    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 /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif!!!! 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 /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif!!!

    Yo Bill,

    Isn't that for 500????

    BTW ya otta move up from that 300 PWM (peckerwood magnum/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif) 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. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    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. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

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

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

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

    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.
