Looking for Silver Tips

Starting to reload for a friend and he's been using WW 130 grain SilverTips in his .270 for decades. Have been looking on EBAY and AMAZON. Does anyone have a source for these bullets?

I had 1/2 a box that I threw away after an epic bullet failure..... they don't make them anymore for good reason.

Now is probably a good time for your friend to move to one of the really good new technology bullets that are available. So many choices....

Agreed. I'll load him up some 130 SST. Thanks for the replies.
