Mmm, that takes the fun out of it.I’m sure that they are not targeting the average man for there sales quotas! If you can afford a $100,000.00 plus for a rifle, chances are you are not getting your hands dirty reloading your own ammunition.
BTW - The 458WM 500 gr TBSS cost $250 per 20 cartridges.I certainly wish that they would load their 500 grain Trophy Bonded Sledgehammer Solids ( in .458 Winchester Magnum ) to a velocity higher than the pitiful 1950 feet per second ( which they currently advertise ) .
So for the cost of 100 rounds you could buy a good reloading kit and plenty of components.I stopped using Federal ammo because it's unreliable.
Not that it won't go bang...but I can't find it ANYWHERE.
Their production schedule for safari ammo is ridiculous.
Contacted them several time to listen to them tell lies...etc.
I'm done with them.
If I need something made, I'll call Hendershot's.

Oh yeah, Where? None of those things have been available for months.
I would certainly consider doing it if the PH/guide had ideas for loads that weren't readily available. But at those prices I would not want to practice much with it. One shot from a bench, then adjust scope to cover the hole and a 2nd shot to confirm. OK maybe a 2nd and 3rd to confirm then practice with cheaper ammo.just saw that federal is offering custom loaded ammo.
could be handy for non reloaders.
