    I probably got the last box of 169.5 made about 5 years ago. You can search this forum for more info, but I heard that a couple of guys bought the biz with all the inventory and equipment and they made some of the popular calibers and then closed again because of lack of cash flow or something to that effect.

    169.5 gr wildcats compared to my home moly coated 150 Speer SPBT

    Emmagator,

    Here is Paul's email address:

    Paul Stimac <paul@wildcatbullets.com>

    I believe he recently hired another person to help him out so sometimes it takes him several weeks to get back with you. Hopefully Paul will jump on this thread. The last time I communicated with Paul via email, was in Jan. I'm still waiting to see if he got my order and is processing it. Good luck.

    Jeff

    Good question!! I've sent numerous e-mails to Paul and have nothing, I have bullets on order and some 200gr bullet that were going to ship with the 169.5's months ago. I'm bumming hard, anyone have a phone number as e-mail isn't working!!!

    bigngreen,
    I have had a similar experience. I paid for several hundred .277 169.5gr bullets back in June. Last email i got was that he would mail them in a week (that was August 12). Since then all of my queries have gone unanswered. I would at least like to get my money back.

    I've tried like a mad man to get a hold of Paul at the e-mail address in the contact and replying to e-mails he's sent but I have yet to get one back in two months. I don't know, maybe he's shipped my order but I have never received it, if that was the case I would hit the order button on several hundred bullets but I'm not taking the risk till I know someone is on the other end! If there was a SNAFU with my order I'm cool we can get it taken care of but that can't happen till someone will return e-mails or have a phone number or some thing!!!

    Y would a fella want to get some if replacement isn't possible?:rolleyes:

    Having said that I have 200+ original Richard Graves 169.5 RBBTs that I'd trade even even up for Berger 338 - 300 gr latest offerings.

    These RBBTs shoot great in my 270 AM @ a bit over 3400 FPS?
