Does Nosler make bullets for reloading.
« on: January 05, 2022, 02:57:47 PM »
So as the story goes.....
I had that thread this spring looking for
7mm nosler accubond 160 grain.
Well I scratched it this spring,couldn't find them.
So did find 150 grain hunting ballistic tips.
I still have a box and a half.

Here's the rant.
God dang nosler ,Man I have a love /hate relationship
With those greedy pieces of dog dirt.
2021 really shows ya ,who will throw ya under the bus to make the big dollars on factory ammo.

And does everybody shoot 7mm now days ,holy smokes .
I always get limited to two boxes at midway or where ever online. Find a load ,reloading as fast as I can. Then BOOM can't find them dang bullets again.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

Like everybody else Nosler has a huge backlog of orders.   They're working full time to catch up, I drive by the factory on my way to buy dog food all the time.   The "Shooters Shop" online store has the inventory there at that location that I occassionally peruse.  Slim pickings the past few years obviously.


There are alternatives that are frequently in stock if you wanted to run a copper bullet instead.....

7mm are the new hot thing.  The same bullet works in a 28 nosler 280 ackley, 7mm rem mag and so on.

I managed to find a 50 160gn partitions at a gun show this summer.  Anything Nosler is like searching for a unicorn.  I can find all sorts of horses and mules but not a one has a horn on top.   :bash:

Currently on Gunbroker there is a case Federal Premium, 7mm Remington Mag 160 grain (10 boxes of 20) for a buy now price of $800 and found two boxes of 50 bullets each for $214, but auction not over yet. Not a lot of 7mm on the 7 pages of Accubonds tons of .338

Tons at sportsman in Silverdale, 160s even but $62 a box. Last box I bought in 2020 was $39. Heck partitions weíre only $42 a box at that time. I cannot believe bullet production cost has jumped that much, brass prices havenít change a ton, primers are almost double but at high yield so it has to be powder or greed.

Ya I'm not even looking for the accubond anymore.
Seems my gun ,or my load,or whatever likes them 150 gr ballistic tips.
Cheaper ,and better accuracy ,I'm sold.
I still have a box and a 1/2 ,enough for this season.
I'll tell you guys honest, I loaded the load on the hybrid v bottle ,that is for 140 gr. Took it out ,shot it .About 3/4 group at 100 . Said yup I'm done that will work for hunting.
So I just got lucky on load. I'm sure if I messed with coal and all that I could improve.
But I don't have extra bullets for that

Demand has doubled. Supply has not
seems like this is becoming a cycle. The old argument against increasing production capacity that ďthis is temporaryĒ isnít really holding water any more.

I will say that in the past ammo panics, hunting rifle ammo and shot shells were never been hard to find.  It was all pistol/ar/22lr related stuff. Now all I can find for reloading is target bullets. Go figureÖ
you can still get gas in heaven, and a drink in kingdom come,
in the meantime, i'll be cleaning my gun

Completely agree.   Production is going to have to double if not more to catch up.  Thatís expensive and as companies try to catch up qc issues will arise as many have seen already. 

I think a lot of these companies are just hoping to catch up like they have in years past.  I donít see that happening. 
Itís going to take a lot more equipment and labor to match todayís markets, thatís going to mean price increases as well as possible qc issues as production gets ramped up

I've definitely noticed price increase,even with hornady ,which is about all you find reliable these days.
I will give hornady that,they didn't throw reloader under the bus. And I have been trying to send money there way just cause of that.
