    Has anyone had any experience with this company? I ordered from them and the order never showed pu. He also will not return e-mails requesting status and there is no phone number to call. I was hoping someone here would know how to contact him. So far I am not impressed.
    Thanks

    Don posts on here as "Shaky" every now and then about his bullets, free bullets to post on his site or something like that, has a few guys testing bullets for him, I know nothing more of the guy or his practices.

    Good luck!

    Dave,

    Don, aka 'Shaky', sent some of his bullets a couple months ago for testing. He was up front & honest about what he wanted and what he delivered. The bullets I've tested thus far have been fantastically accurate.

    He does often travel to out-of-country venues, so he may not be available for correspondence for extended periods of time. Don't give up on him yet....

    Texas Dave,

    I am sorry that your order has not been sent out yet. If I had the order in hand I would send it out. If you would be so kind this is what I will do: If you send me a Private Message and list your order, the caliber and type bullet you ordered, your name and address, phone number, I will double your order and send it out right away. If you ordered 50 bullets (as an example) I will send you 100. That is 50 for free.

    I have some issues with e-mail and have had for several weeks now. I am having a DSL line connected this Friday and hope to configure the computers to eliminate such things from happening in the future. In this electronic age sometimes things go haywire.

    Please accept my appologies for your order - which I have not received.

    Don

    I knew Don would get you taken care of!! Once you shoot these bullets you will forget the wait really quick. One of the MOST ACCRAUTE premium hunting bullets I have ever shot, infact probably is the most accurate I have shot. Its not a huge operation so time frames can be a bit slow but MORE than worth it.

Your free to talk about anything you like or dislike. Check it out and sighn up for the free bullets and the chance to win a .17HMR just for sighning up to the forum!!!

    Dave, you have just ordered an excellent premium bullet. both my rifles shoot between 1/2" and 3/4" with the groovies. Like Sako-not an employee- just a very satisfied customer.

    I had ordered these to test actually my smith was breaking in a new barrel and we desided to try them. I do not know if he received them but I will be there next week to pick up the rifle. I can let you know what he thinks then. Hope they are as good as everyone says. Thanks for the information.

    The origional order of 50 bullets came in. My smith has worked up a load and tells me he got a 1/4 inch group out of the bullets. He was very impressed. I understand you two have corresponded. I will see them this week. Looking forward to seeing what we have

    I will be testing some at the Iowa 1000 yard Range on the APR 17 if the wind is not blowing hard If the wind is blowing I will be shooting my 338 YOGI instead of my 6.5mm. If I dont shoot the 6.5 in Iowa I will shot some In Ohio on APE 24 or 25 to see what they will do.
