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.
Hold into the wind
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.
