    Just heard on the local news that the Nosler factory is on fire. They said a big explosion and possible casualties. I know a few people over there and just hope all is well.

    Just got back from 2 stores here in Redmond (next to Bend where Nosler is/was). The stores are getting PUMMELED! 2 guys are racing to Bi-Mart with cash in hand to buy everything Nosler on the shelf. I bought the last box of 140gr Accubonds for 277 that Centwise had. I didnt have enough $ to go to Big R, and look there too.
    The local economy has been hit especially hard here in Central Oregon, and this is a big blow to us as well as the shooting community. Nosler employed alot of folks. Im glad everyone (so far) is accounted for, and I hope Nosler rebuilds quickly!
