Been trying to find a box of .224 50-grain Nosler CT Ballistic Silvertips, and NOBODY has them. WTF??? I know Hornady is supposed to be retooling (and a buch of bullets are on hold for that for a while). Anyone know anything about the Silvertips?

The bullets or loaded rounds?

Like this? Doesn't sound like the classic Silver Tip but it's what they're calling it...

I'm confused by this comment....I know Hornady is supposed to be retooling (and a buch of bullets are on hold for that for a while).

No Offense intended at all , but ....What has Hornady got to do with Nosler bullets ?

I knew H was retooling, was wondering if anyone might know why Nosler was so slow on shipping component silvertips. Wondered if they were doing something similar to H.

Winchester is the problem not Nosler, it's due to Winchester filling all the 1.6 billion rounds for FEMA and DHS. Some of which are handgun rounds in the Ranger LE line, others 5.56 Winchester is also helping Alliant Techsystems fill.

Um no. There us no 1.6 billion round order.
