Re: Western Bullet Co

Good link Sheepdog, found a few more suppliers. Was getting very worried, but have been able to track down brass, dies and now bullets, and Lyman's Cast Bullet Handbook lists Unique as a suitable powder.

Re: Western Bullet Co

I buy all my bullets at my local shop. I'm very lucky. Prices are good and no shipping, and waiting.

Re: Western Bullet Co

Since I use almost entirely lead bullets they almost all come from online. Jacketed bullets, 22-250 and 30-30, I get locally at Cabelas.

Re: Western Bullet Co

I pay just over $40 per 500 of the LRNFP. They also carry the XTP JHP's in many weights. Works for me.

Re: Western Bullet Co

very good price BH. I buy the majority of my bullets from Missouri Bullets. Also buy from Mastercraft, Meister, Penn and now Western. None of these folks have all the different bullets I need.

Re: Western Bullet Co BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!

After a 3 week wait the bullets from Western finally came. This was after 2 earlier assurances they had been shipped. I ordered ,321 dia 165 gr bullets and what I got was .313's in boxes labeled 170 gr, .321. Although the bullets do weigh out at 165 (irrespective of what the 7 boxes say) .313 bullets don't work, no way, in place of .321s. I have tried to call western bullets in Missoula, MT numerous times but no one answers the phone.

So, I warn everyone to BEWARE and NOT, NOT, NOT PURCHASE anything from this company.

THEY ARE NOT SAFE FOLKS TO DO BUSINESS WITH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !

Re: Western Bullet Co BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!

They're having some bad weather out there I believe. Give it a day or 2 and they may answer. I hope you get it straightened out.

Re: Western Bullet Co BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!

This has been going on since the 14th of Dec and I have been trying to call for a week. On the positive side I have found a few .321 bullets out of the 700 delivered.

Re: Western Bullet Co BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have you ever thought about casting them yourself? I'm just getting started in casting but I can already cast a better bullet than any store bought.

Besides it's loads of fun!

Re: Western Bullet Co BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!

I keep thinking about casting my own, Deadeye, but really don't have the space to set things up. Also would need to do some rewiring in the shop. Right now it is not worth the work or organization it would take.

How's your weather?

re: Western Bullet Co, Missoula, Mt

Western Bullet CO. P.O.Box 998, 904 Kensington Ave., Missoula, MT 59806 (406-728-4801) should be avoided.

Short version;
- un responsive
- no confirmation of orders placed
- do not return emails
- do not respond to calls at the listed phone number (406-728-4801)

Long Version;
Originally, in search of a "Collar Button" bullet (0.457 Dia / 190 Gr weight) vendor Vs casting my self.

Tried several other ways of communicating with Western Bullet all to no avail.
1 - contacted Missoula Chamber Of Commerce "Not a member". they do not know who runs the co.
2 - contacted Missoula "Municipal Court" talked to Stacy - 406-552-6180, she stated they are a ligitimate business , she suggested the "BBB".
3 - contacted the Missoula Police 406-552-6300, said they know of the biz. location "..a small plaza", suggested going to Civil Claims court
4 - filed complaint with "BBB" in Spokane Wa. BBB N. W., Spokane, WA 406-303-3296 or 509-455-4200 (The rulling BBB district office for Missoula.)

If you Google Earth the street address you will see Western Bullett is a store front in a small plaza just behind the "Kings Christian Church" with other small Biz. on both sides "Master Barber' and on the other side "Garden Mother Herbs".

5 - called the "Garden Mother Herb shop" they say hardley anyone ever there.

If your trying to do business with Western Bullet Co. you may find it difficult to impossible as I did. If you find that your credit card was charged, suggest you go to small claims court listed above. "BBB" cannot force Western Bullett Co to do anything.
