No problem. I check the Swift site from time to time.

Looking for a couple boxes of 160 grain 7mm Swift A Frame bullets. Heading to Tanzania for buff and PG. Need some help on bullets. Cash or trade is fine.

Thanks!

I don’t have any, but kudos to you for asking. That’s exactly what you want. Add 140gr TTSX to your list too which is the only alternative I’ve found favorable. It’s volume is bigger than the a-frame so you get get a bigger hole, but less momentum.

@Nevada Mike it will be interesting on how quick you get your order from Swift. A couple months ago, I ordered some 7mm and 270 A-Frames and got them in about 10 days.

About a month ago, I ordered 2 boxes of 404 SAF and they have yet to ship. I called Swift and they said they had one box in inventory and holding it for me. They weren't sure when the second box would become available and asked if they should ship the one box. I said yes. I looked at the Swift website today and they are showing the 404 bullets available, so it appears to me that Swift's website is not entirely up to date with their actual inventory. I hope you get your bullets quickly, but don't be surprised if it takes awhile.

Hmmmm. Maybe their website updates lag behind the actual inventory situation. They actually MAKE the bullets... they should know what's happening in their own shop?

I have some time... my safari is not until September of next year, but I am anxious to get the new .404 and the 7mm RM tuned and practice for the next 15 months.

Now, if I can only find some magnum large rifle primers - I'm down to only a couple hundred.

I've been watching several large rifle magnum primer auctions on GB and the going price is anywhere between $100 and really stupid per 1000 Federal No 215.

Crazy, I just sold a bunch locally for $30 per 1000. I couldn’t sleep at night if I charged someone $100 for them!

that would be true if their CNC equipment reported in to the database used by the web site. even if it were a job kicked off daily, they'd have accurate info on their website.

however, my guess is that's not how they're maintaining the numbers on their website.

I hate to bother you....I own 2 of your books including British bore rifle. I was hoping you might have more 10 bore loads. For the heavier and later rifles. Any help would be appreciated.

I hope your hunting season has started off well. I am coming to Namibia for the 7th time in late April of 2022. I am bringing two friends who have never hunted outside of the USA. I have several questions, but before I write them all, I will wait to see if you receive this. Please give a shout................................best regards.........................Bill...............Idaho, USA
