Will do, Dave.

I hear such great things about this load, but it's very hard to find...and the people who DO carry it are often sold-out. Hmmm... What's the deal? Are these things hand-made?

Federal bought out Estate and are no longer making these loads. Federal has their own, more expensive, load... This I was told by a Federal Cartridge rep.


Check around and let us know too. Or, do the smart thing and buy it all for yourself

If Federal has any sense, they'll continue to make it, marked as Federal "Special Purpose" or some such. The load is very good, and considering all the free publicity this BB has given it, it should sell like cold beer on the 4th of July.

look at this thread, 90-couple views in less than 24 hours.Bet lots of people would like to see it available again. Put me at the top of the list.

And it would be competing with Winchester and Remington more than Federal. Fed has its own group of dedicated fans for their LE oriented products.
