Default 7.62x25 Wolf Gold HP

Arrrg! I'm driving myself nuts trying to find anyplace online that actually has any in stock. They're all estimating backorder from between middle of March to the middle of MAY!

Anybody got a line on an online merchant that actually has these in stock?

Note: I have plenty of the FMJ, it's the HP that I want. At the moment, Wolf and Reeds are the only ones making commercial HP in this cartridge and I'm already backordered with Reeds (and have been since December).

Peace favor your sword,
Kirk

Yeah, that's what it looks like to me too. Unless I can get lucky and find someone who has a box or two, I'll just have to wait it out. But I'm not inclined to patience. :P

I love this round, truly. But unless I'm expecting to be assaulted by bad guys wearing armour, the FMJ just way over-penetrates. But the Wolf Gold HP hits with more energy than a 125gr. .357 Mag. and expands well while penetrating just about right and the Reeds seems to perform even better.

I don't HAVE to carry my "commie ray-gun" since I have other very good alternatives. But I WANT to.

I guess maybe I'll post a WTB in a few trading sections.

Peace favor your sword,
Kirk

I'm sure it's good but I'm not a reloader.
