    That's good news. Wonder if they will be available in the states and if so how long it would be before they show up. I'm guessing it would be awhile

    Yes that is good news! To my knowledge their soft point was the only equivalent to the RSA Rhino and their Cup Point Solid was very complimentary to the Woodleigh Hydro Solid and maybe even a little better. Finding USA/NA distribution will be important.

    Not being familiar with North Fork bullets, but many here have raved about their performance. Just curious, where was the company located before? Thanks!

    That’s the important part. It doesn’t matter how good they are if you can’t buy them. I think their 350 grain .375 bullets would be perfect for buffalo, and I hope I can get some in the next 8-10 years.

    350's may be a little long and possibly a challenge to get a good group. If so, the 300gr version will more than suffice.

    I know 300s would be more than adequate and would make a better all rounder, but @IvW says the 350 and even 380 rhinos will stabilize, and are real buff medicine.

    Reload International will be my agent in US so there will be bullet for US market. And i think direct after Dallas Safari Club you can order direct from Mike. Some Caliber sold out but i will produce new as soon as possible.

    So, Jorgan you bought NF? Do you have an English website? I’ll check out Reload International.
    By the way, welcome to AH!
    I’m looking forward to getting more NF bullets for my 375 H&H!

    Yes i bought North Fort Technologies.
    I have a page in Sweden but you can choose english there also, up in right corner there is a flag. But i haven't update my page with all caliber and weights yet. We just finish the deal so i work on it. Page adress is www.jbhunting.se
    Later i will also have North Forks old adress and i haven't decide yet if i keep the old site or not. I haven't updated the pricelist now when we manufacture the bullet.

    JB,
    Congratulations and thank you.
    I have used the NF FPS, CPS, and SS in my .405 and .458 and they were more than satisfactory.
    The 450 grain .458 FPS shot through just about everything, including ele frontal brain shots- where they went through the head and into the body. When you are in full production, I will restock the .458s. Until then, I will continue to use my .405 300 grain NF at 2250 fps which also shoot through just about everything.

    Jorgen Bostrom welcome to AH. For everyone's benefit would you please write up a short bio and submit it. The fact that you are going to continue making North Fork bullets and sell them in the States has already made you some "friends" on this site. Please consider sending Jerome an email and becoming a sponsor of AH. That way you can "advertise" directly. Previously North Fork made Load Data available to their customers, are you going to continue doing so?

    Count me as a friend with no need for quotation marks. As far as I’m concerned this is the best news to end the year on.

    Jorgen - congrats on “saving” North Fork. I hope you’re able to set up a distributor in SA soon - would love to use them in my 30-06 and 9.3x62!

    Mr. Bostrom,

    Thank you for carrying on the North Fork line of bullets. While I am sad that it is no longer in my home state of Oregon, I am glad that it will be carried on.

    Please keep us updated here as far as production goes and also for importation to the USA goes.

    I would be happy to buy some more when you get the line running!

    This is great news, indeed!

    I hope the market will be able to support the continued production of these fine bullets.

    Congratulations Jorgen. Will there be a rep at Dallas Safari Club? I have pulled 2 North fork soft points out of the opposite side of nice Cape Buffalo. Both wee 300 grain soft points. One weighed 297.7 grns and the other 265 grains. Both had outstanding performance.
