West Coast Bullets: What is their status?

I understand that they are moving. They don't respond to Email and the phones go unanswered. Anyone know when, or if they will be back in business?

Any other good sources for bullets? I know about Berry's.
Thanks..

Tony Z:

I have been trying to contact them via their 800 number, local number and Email. No response. I'll try again on Monday. I will buy from another vendor should I not reach them.

Anyone else make consistent bullets with a thick outer plate?

Thanks..

Just got off the phone with Red Halliday. Several hundred dollars later (I ordered 11,000 bullets), I spoke to him regarding West Coast's status. They are, in fact, still in business. They have always been in business, but moved locations and had a problem with their phone lines in the transfer. All phone lines, including the 800 number (1-800-482-2103) are working now. Also, Red asked me to apologize to the TFL members if you tried to reach him at his email bullets@sprynet.com, but he was on vacation and has over a hundred emails to return.

Berry Bullets

Berrys Bullets cost alot more then the West Coast Bullets and don't have as thick of a plating. The thickest plated bullets that I know about, are the West Coast Bullets.

Good Shoot'en,
