    any suggestions where I might find 458 and 416s would be appreciated. I have had no luck at Midway, Grafs and others.

    Are you looking for just the component, or loaded ammo?

    I cannot recall having ever seen them for sale in any caliber as a component.
    Have you checked the Speer website to see if they have them?
    JAT, but you might have to consider NorthFork, Peregrine, or Woodleigh.

    I think that they are now owned by Federal. Everything I've read suggests that they will be available (as a reloading component) soon. My info is from research conducted about a month ago.

    They haven't historically been available as a component, only loaded ammunition.

    I never used them but I thought the Speer Trophy Bonded Bear Claws were available as components. The new "sledgehammer" is also a Trophy Bonded bullet. However it is proprietary. Federal has said they would soon be offered as a component to reloaders.
