I am glad everyone all right. That is a bummer because they are right near the top of my favorite list.

They were probably tumbling live ammo at the time.

Slam Fire.... using too soft primers! Big boom!

I sure hate to hear this as it will make the reloading bullet supply go backwards again. I guess it is George Bush's fault also!

I'm real sorry to read this. Hopefully they well get back on their feet soon.

I'm real sorry to read this. Hopefully they well get back on their feet soon. FWIW, stopped at my local reloading store today, and John mentioned that the Nosler rep had called him earlier in the day, and that they have ample supply and expect to be back up and running in 3 months. We both felt that was optimistic, but that's ok. At least it sounds like they have a plan.

Looks like they will be back up a lot sooner than 3 months. The facebook page says maybe tomorrow!?

I hope they are up and running soon, because I sure like my Nosler bullets.

Same here. I have some .357 and .44 Noslers on Backorder from Midway. They were ordered in mid March when on sale. Last week the shipping date was supposed to be the end of May........they now say June of 2011. I called Midway's customer service last night and they said they hadn't received anything from Nosler lately and because of the fire, they weren't expecting anything for a while.:banghead:


They said they'd still honor the sale price if they received the bullets within 13 months........

The local vendor The Gunstop has Nosler 9mm handgun bullets on back order since July of 2008. In general Nosler was getting as bad as Hornady......with their fill rates on orders.
They are more interested in making specialty bullets when people want varmint bullets......

Try to keep a years supply of Ballistic Tips on hand for varmints, would hate to change to an alternative if this affects their production and supply chain....glad no one was hurt.

So... Did it rain bullets? :neener:

I hope they spring back fast. Last thing we need is a component shortage.
