Is anyone seeing Sierra bullets for sale anywhere ... especially in the North East (NY, PA, MD, VA, WV) ? If so where ? Also, since Sierra has now purchased Barnes, does that mean we won't be seeing any Barnes bullets either ? Ben

I'm not seeing any new stock on the shelves and have gotten very few notifications about Sierra bullets being in stock anywhere. I've got notification requests out all over the place for the .224 50 grain Blitzking and 7mm 150 grain Gameking.

And not only are they not available, their prices are ridiculous.

I've seen about 7 boxes total between about 3 different Sportsman's Warehouse in my area. 2 of the boxes were .277 130 grain Game Kings, 1 was still on the shelf the last time I was in there.

I just bought 1000 77 grain MK from Champions choice, around 30 cents each. Creedmoor had them also.

I have seen increasing amounts in different calibers and models of Sierra bullets on local lgs had the 30 cal 165 tmk and others including 90 gr.6mm tmk which I've thought about for use in.my old m7 6mm rem with 18.5 inch barrel. Lotta different mk's, sp, btsp hunting bullets. Local sources seem to be getting more all the time...mb

was just looking on Mid South's site...

They have a batch of decent hunting bullets available...kinda bread and butter stuff....

not only Sierra but Hornady, Speer etc also... and considering the dollar is worth only 39 cent under Biden right now..
the pricing isn't too off the mark...its Biden we have to thank and the democRats also.

BEN243: One of my lifelong friends and Hunting/Varminting partners is LITERALLY on the phone every week to the higher ups at Sierra complaining about his lifelong use of their bullets for Hunting/Varminting/targeting and for the last year plus he CAN NOT replace the Sierras he shoots.
Their answer - repeatedly - is we don't care we are dedicating our bullets for ammo and ammo manufacturers.
I agree on the shortage, in my constant perusal of gunshops, gunstores and sporting goods stores the Sierras are right next to non-existent where for MANY decades before Sierras were plentiful/abundant.
Even my friends threats to boycott Sierra bullets fell on deaf ears down Sedalia, Missouri way.
Puzzling to me this.

Ever work retail.

Every customer is/should be important.

5-10% of them are your "Best" customer, spend the "Most" money,
make the most demands, and threaten to "go elsewhere".

They guys are never best, biggest, worth the time, and are like a bad
dose of the clap. They won't go away.

The instant the talk goes to how important they are, is when customer service hears, Blah,Blah, Blah.

That's just business. Supplying ammo manufacturers and especially production of their own line is likely more lucrative than supplying reloaders. With people unwilling to work, increasing capacity may not be practical right now.
