Back on September 1st, I ordered a box of Hornady bullets for my .204 Rugar (See; http://www.sinclairintl.com/reloading-components/bullets/rif... ). On 9/2, I got a e-mail from Sinclair that they were on backordered and that they would be shipped ASAP. On December 10th, I got a e-mail from Brownells (Sinclair sold out to them a couple of years ago) that said “As you know, the firearms industry continues to struggle with inventory issues as a result of this never-before-seen worldwide demand. We’re proud to report that we’ve made incredible gains on much of our high-demand inventory; however, ammunition, reloading components and some other firearm accessories remain in frustratingly short supply.You're receiving this email because your order(s) contains backordered products. . . .”Yesterday, I received a e-mail from Sinclair that my order was shipped and, checking with UPS, I can expect it at my door on March 26th. Only seven months to receive my bullets. Maybe by this time next year I can get some powder and 17-rimfire ammo, yes.;-)C.J.V. – going to the range today to burn some .204 and old 22-rimfire ammo to celebrate, me
www.ammoseek.com shows a few vendors with .17 in stock. Like all rimfires nowadays it is pricey. The lowest price for .17HMR is $.25/round. 9mm has is readily available but prices have crept up in recent weeks.Interestingly, .357Sig is less expensive than .45ACP.Mason
Which .204 Rugar Rifle do you shoot?I saw one of these at a local gun shop http://www.ruger.com/products/HawkeyePredator/models.htmlI love the stocks on those.
Which .204 Rugar Rifle do you shoot?I picked up the Savage Model: 25 Lightweight Varminter-T (See; http://www.savagearms.com/firearms/models/ ) from a local big box sporting goods store here in Loosiana a few years back after I had my shoulder operated on. I figured that I probably wouldn’t be able to shoot the big or even medium sized magnums no more and the .204 would make a light varmint rifle for coyotes when I was too lazy to haul out one of the 22-250 or .243s. ;-)C.J.V. – gots a 300 H&H magnum & a .458 fur my heavy varmint rifles, me
