    Rainier Ballistics bullets - Postponed til May

    UPDATE - 2-12-2013

    Hey guys,

    So, good news and bad news....

    The good - After numerous contact attempts I was finally able to get a hold of them.

    The bad - orders will not process until May.

    Currently they have several million bullets on back order and they are trying to keep up with the escalated demand. As I was talking with them, they were processing over a million bullets to one of their major distributors. They will have bullets again for another group buy but that will not be until May.

    The last few group buys that I organized went quite smoothly as some of you on here can remember. If all goes well and this buying frenzy passes, I'm hoping to organize another group buy in May.

    I will check in with them periodically and, if bullets become available prior to May, I will initiate another buy. Til then, I'm hoping that all of us are able to find the components that we need.

    Sorry I couldn't help out, guys...although I didn't have any bullets on order for myself, I'm disappointed that I couldn't help you guys out.



    To those participating, the order has been forwarded to Rainier Ballistics and am waiting confirmation and pick up date. I will start collecting payments once I receive a response back from them.

    Again, payment will be due PRIOR to picking up bullets (Paypal, USPS Money Order, Cash in person) or I will not be able to pick up your order.

    In the next day or two, I will also PM individually those that ordered to follow up. Feel free to do the same.

    Tlang - Please clear your inbox and contact me asap about your order!


    Original post:

    Hey all,

    It's been a while since I've put together a group buy so I figured I'd go ahead and put together another one to get you folks some more bullets! I have not been on this forum much lately but had over 100+ positive feedback on here prior to site transition.

    For those who are unfamiliar with Rainier Ballistics, they are a local bullet manufacturer located in Tacoma, WA. They do not usually deal directly with the public but their bullets can be found nationwide at numerous sporting stores. All of their bullets are leadsafe, total copper plated which reduce lead vapors by as much as 95%.

    Here's the link to their website:

    We are expecting to place the order in the next few weeks so PM me if you are interested. I am located in Seattle but attend pistol/rifle matches from Custer to Kitsap. Shipping can also be arranged (USPS flat rate only).

    Here's the current price list with taxes included. These prices are directly from Rainier (+/- a penny for averaging tax) without any markup. You will not find these prices in stores...

    335 gr HP 214.25
    400 gr FP 216.66

    Note: The above prices are subject to change at any time.

    Pricing for bullets packaged in 500 packs add $1.50 to 1000 pack pricing and divide by 2 to get the correct pricing.

    Legend: RN=Round Nose. FP=Flat Point. HP=Hollow Point.
    SWC=Semi-Wad cutter. TRN=Truncated Round Nose. RNFP=Round Nose Flat Point.

    Prices are still the same but may change soon so don't miss out! Also, due to recent demand for bullets, some calibers may be temporarily out of stock. Once you send me your needs, I'll confirm with RB to make sure they are available.

    I personally don't need any more bullets and am only doing this to give everyone the opportunity to get some components before supplies run dry. Again, these prices are direct from Rainier and I will not receive a penny in profit...

    Personally, I've shot over 50,000 of these through numerous pistols and have never had any problems with them. Great chance to support a local business while getting some great bullets!

    Bump it up! There's been lots of interest so get in while you can!

    To clear up any confusion this is only for the bullet component.

    Can someone break down the acronyms for me?

    I know what TCJ is, but these other ones are new to me: RN? FP? DEWC? TRN?

    Would you consider doing a bi-monthly group purchase? I'd like to get in on this.
