    Just an aside to this story. One of the Eley executives, not sure which one, is an IPSIC competitor which I feel sure led to Eley producing this line of center fire ammo. Since he can't take his race gun back to the UK with him, he stores it with a mutual friend in the US.

    Can we stay focused on ELEY and RMR?

    Thanks in advance.

    Congrats to Jake and team at RMR! This only confirms what many of us already knew: RMR makes quality bullets! Consistent, inexpensive and accurate!!

    And a special tip of the hat to our own BDS for such great information and testing over the years!!

    Time to order some more before everyone else gets clued in and they all go out of stock! :D:p

    "Had a customer who thought our 135 grain bullet looked like it wasn’t concentric.

    I told him it was just a trick of the light because we are anal about the concentricity of our matchwinner series bullets. He set out to verify that claim by grinding the angles off of the base and measuring the concentricity in microns. Needless to say our bullets impressed him a lot."

    Yup! From rags to riches while we watched (and ordered). Pretty soon Jake will be rubbing cuff links with the "millionaires and billionaires" a recent president used to complain about !!

    The only thing Jake needs now... the only thing he doesn't have... is a theme song !
    So what we have here is his very own personal theme song,
    as sung to the theme music from the "Beverly Hillbillies".


    ♫ Come and listen to my story 'bout a man named Jake,
    A poor mountaineer, 'bout to starve for goodness sake !
    Then one day he bought old bullets on a whim,
    So he started sellin' seconds, pulls, and blems.
    (Shined every single one by hand, he did.)

    Next thing you know old Jake's a billionaire,
    Kin folk said, Don't go to Commie-fornia, even on a dare !
    Said Lewiston is the place you wanna go,
    So they started shippin' bullets from their home in Idaho. ♫
    (He don't need no stinkin' movie stars !)

    Look for the CD in your next bullet shipment !:rofl:

    Memories ... :D




    And remember this? :rofl:


    Having followed RMR's growth from humble beginnings to being chosen by ELEY, and having numerous exchanges while seeing how he treats his customers over the years, I think Jake will stay grounded to where he came from and continue supplying his customers with quality products at great prices and excellent customer service.

    And how about this bit of insider information? https://www.facebook.com/rmrbullets/photos/a.164961740263755/1465187630241153/?type=3&theater

    I think this is why Jake will stay "grounded" even after RMR becomes super successful ... He is still human (Watch 0:14 second of the video) :D

    Any specific market they are going after by offering this chambering? I shoot USPSA Limited and I don't really pay much attention to Open division, but I thought that 38 Super shooters were on the decline. It might still be a popular round in IPSC, which is probably who they are going after.

    I had sort of a similar question. I would say the most serious Open guys still mostly shoot 38 super, as it feeds a little better, produces more gas to run the comp, and is generally thought to be slightly better for gun longevity than 9mm Major. But I think a substantial majority of recreational open shooters getting new guns these days are getting 9 Major guns. I do wonder if it is primarily the U.S. market being sought with the ammo or the world market. I have some sense that 38 super is remains a little more dominant in the world IPSC market because of a combination of laws against military rounds (9mm), lower rates of reloading among shooters, and higher average wealth among the IPSC market compared to USPSA.

    Apparently "premium" match bullets ... who knew? :D

    Now Jake, don't go raising prices of your "match bullets" on us now after demand goes through the roof. ;)

    Dang. Posting old videos makes me blush. Anyone else hate the sound of their own voice?

    LOL, Jake, your voice sounded fine.

    I had to give speeches and presentations for work I retired from and many of these were recorded.

    Mine's worse. :eek:

    It's normal, we hear it in our head differently than others hear it, or we hear it on tape.

    And all but the best microphones clip out a lot of the tones (the human voice is pretty acoustically complex), so what we hear in playback is always just a subset of what our voice really is.

    I was very self-conscious about my voice for many years, as I perceived it (based on hearing it on answering machine messages) to be rather reedy and nasal. I grew up in the flight path of a combined naval air station, air force reserve base, and factory runway for Lockheed. I got "trained" to put some cut in my voice as a kid - otherwise, there was no way to carry on a conversation at recess some days. So there definitely is a cutting, nasal component to my voice. It's there, no doubt. But with better recording equipment, there's other stuff there, too.

    On the plus side, I've never, ever, ever had a court reporter/transcriptionist ask me to speak up. Sometimes I'll go into a courtroom or hearing room and the clerk or bailiff will warn me the microphone is a little tricky and needs to be adjusted just right to pick up voices. I tell them I'm not worried about needing the mic to work. It has never been a problem.
