Heard on the Campfire that the factory burned down other day? Is this true? I also heard that Geoff was not going to rebuild it. Insurance paid enough to retire I guess, ha. I sure love his bullets!

I think he is 71 and wouldn't be keen on the whole process of building up the machinery setup again, but hopefully some sort of business partnership arrangement can be reached with another party and his experience and expertise can be used to get it going again.

That's a bold assertion. Point out where you think I lied.

That's fantastic news. I heard that his enthusiasm is picking up as he goes through the damage assessment and working out what needs to be done. He didn't have insurance - I'm not clear on whether no-one would insure the business or it was going to be cost prohibitive. The insurers wanted to class him as a munitions facility or something like that - somewhat extreme but their call I suppose.

The latest I read, from an June 20th email from Geoff is they expect to restart production very late this year, with full production early next year.

Fingers crossed .

Don't think Geoff could get insurance so that is not an angle to look at.

I am so pleased Woodleigh are rebuiding. Like many, I remember what it was like with nitro cartridges pre Woodleigh, Bertram etc. Had to scratch around, make do and source lots components from overseas if they could be gotten.

Thank goodness they are rebuilding. They fill a niche market and fill it well.

Hope they come back. Woodleighs are the best bullets I have found for my 9.3x62 and 375 H&H
