    Just saw where ATK/Speer made a $14 million (over four years) deal supplying 9mm Gold Dot ammo to the 250,000 French LEO's in all organizations.

    No wonder GD bullets & CCI primers are out of stock here in the U.S.. :what:

    Actually that's not true Speer bullets have never been hard to find. Especially their gold dots for reloading. Now, if you said Hornady I would agree with your stateme t Hornady has sucekd at getting bullets out does not matter the caliber.....have not seen 9mm Hornady bullets in months, and well 38 cal are spotty and some not to be found ie 140gr, 40's are hard to find, and 45's.....

    Yet another example of the Americans bailing out the French.

    Unfortunately they don't. The Gamaliel website doesn't show inventory levels like most so I called them....none on hand, like everyone else they are backordered!
    Thanks for the try though...

    I went to my reloading shop this weekend and his shelves were full of Hornady, all calibers. You need to keep looking.

    sort of 'off topic' but Natchez had .357 Hornadys in stock, 125 & 158 gr. got 100 of each 3 weeks back.

    Speer+P GD does not go to military U.S. servicemen they are relegated to fmj. AFAIK they use the 'Nato+P' fmj ammo.
    that Speer brass is good stuff IMO.

    I've been able to get Speer GDHPs from Midway albeit with a short backorder delay of maybe a week or two.
