I( have been able to pick up some Nosler AB bullets for my 6.5, 7mm, & 30 cal. Mostly seconds but perfectly good hunting bullets. Also some Hornady & Speer. But Sierra GK hunting bullets in 6.5, 7mm & 30 cal,,, like they have completely disappeared. Am I the only one having this problem. I have found lots of Sierra Match bullets . My local Sportsman Warehouse & even Walmart have Match King bullets, but no GK. Whats going on...

Damn if I know but I have been looking for Sierra Prohunter .308 150 grain bullets for over a year. I have my email address for in-stock notification's at Midway USA, Midsouth shooters supply and Natchez plus I check every place I go that sells reloading supplies and have had zero luck. Its almost like Sierra has quit......Hb

Hey Vahillbilly , if it would help you out I have an old partial box of 52 Sierra 30 cal 150gr Spt boat tail I will probably never use. If interested $18 to you with the shipping.

They seem to be focusing pretty heavily on the Matchkings during this supply shortage/run. I've been able to stock up on the Varminters pretty easily (mostly just don't think that many people are buying them), but the Blitzking, ProHunter, and Gamekings have been few and far between in stock. I got A box of ProHunter 125gr .308 maybe 6 months ago, and haven't seen any in stock anywhere since.

I've been looking for .284 140 gr. Pro Hunters SP's for months now. I have two 7mm-08's and tried them in one rifle and they shot well but GK's were just a bit more accurate. But, this bullet is really accurate in my Browning BLR 7-08. Wish I would have bought more when they were available. May have to look for another bullet as deer season is fast approaching and really want to use the BLR this year.


Start young, hunt hard, and enjoy God's bounty.

I've got one place I buy reloading supplies from and the only bullets that they have had in stock for the last few months is about 6 boxes of 6mm 100 grain game kings. I started to buy a box but decided not to. Not sure why nobody has bought them but those same 6 boxes were there the last 2 times I went there buying powder.

I've used the 130 Pro hunter in my 270 for years, never let me down, great bullet. I use the 150s in my 300 Savage too. Have you kept an eye on Gunbroker? Prices can be high unless you catch a deal, but coming up on hunting seasons, might be even harder to find. I saw these on GB:

Thanks....I do keep an eye on gunbroker and those are the first 2130's i have seen on there in a long time, I put a watch on these if they dont get too crazy high. I will slip in a bid......Its sad that buying reloading components has come to this though.....Thanks Hb

I’ve stocked up on 30 cal and 270 interlocks found locally at reasonable prices if only I could find primers

It seems like only Hornady is actually shipping bullets these days.

I wish I knew. Seems like the only places that have them here are places with deep, older stocks of supplies.

Barnes have been popping up fairly regularly, too.

Speer finally released a big batch last week. I bought a 500rd box of 30 cal TNTs, and they had a bunch of other Speer in stock for a few days. It just sells out fast.

I've also been looking for this bullet. Its more like 1-1/2 years for me. Maybe they will show up pretty soon.

Keep your eyes out for for some 140 grain tipped game kings as well. I bought a box of 500 this spring and they shoot really well in my 8 twist 6.5-06. I have dealt a lot of death out with them already from rock chucks to coyotes. The coyote I shot tonight was at 520 yds

I have not seen them n shelves in quite a while. Did however find 180gr Speer Hot Cor's at a very reasonable price so will be working with them for now.

There were a couple of boxes of 150 grain partitions in my reloading store yesterday. They won’t last long!

Best bullet I ever used, Good luck finding them. I am relegated to 120 Pro Hunters.
