    So back in March I ordered some bullets from RMR. Jake then posted on FB and in his newsletter that he was short handed and up against a wall so things were taking longer then expected. I commented on the FB post to take care of his crew and him first and the order gets filled when it gets filled but if he wouldn’t mind throwing in a few extra reloading cards. A person in shipping picked up on it and asked me what my order was and they would get me taken care of. We’ll order received today and BOOM, jackpot baby!!! The sticker that really caught my eye was the WW2 Rosie the Riveter laying down some 50 cal love ( that’s my take on it)
    Class act operation!!

    Very cool, when I get a 9mm carbine, rmr will be feeding it. Have to see if they said what those new bullets are supposed to be.

    I havent heard about a new 9 round coming out so far, might have to research his FB page to see if he mentioned it. I built my 9 carbine and so far it seems to favor the 124 fmj. It eats everything from RMR I have put through it, but best grouping has been the 124's for some reason.
    Addition: Ok @troy fairweather I found this picture on his FB page from March. But the content of the original post was removed because it was only shared to a small group. Cant tell if these are 9 147gr MPR's as he already has the 115 and 124 MPR's, would be the next logical step I believe.

    There has never been a better time to be nice to folks and forgiving of minor inconveniences than right now. Good for you, OP!

    When I spoke with Jake about 147gr hollow points he mentioned that they wouldn't fit in the machine. Maybe those are 135s?

    Perhaps if Jake has a moment (which I doubt) he could explain.

    I sent them an email asking about a certain 38spl bullet and got two phone calls within 30min of emailing. I didn't answer because I don't know anyone from the north/west area and here it was RMR. He emailed back and gave me the total hookup. I also got a handful of cards. I just got my stimulus check and debating should I pay off some debt, put it in savings or spring $75 for some RMR 124gr MW.

    Don't know, be curious to find out. Although from the sounds of his last email newsletter, if he had time to use the facilities that might be considered a vacation...;)

    I'll play the enabler role if you promise to return the favor. The money is intended to stimulate the economy. How much stimulation will it provide if it's in savings??
    (Hope that helps)

    I don't know, my college loans are interest free until end of September so I could put it on that. :)

    Hard to tell for sure but those look like 124s to me.
    The 124 MPRs have "stubby" noses so more bearing surface than some other 124/125s.
