Bad news for sure.

Awful news. Glad to hear that the evacuation worked as practiced and everyone is accounted for.

Do you think this might cause the O word to close all ammo test tunnels pending the investigation?

"Massive" explosion.  It must have been one of their Ballistic Tip bullets.

The whole mushroom cloud ad always made me laugh.  Maybe there is some truth to it?

I found pics on their website:

It will slow them down for a few months but they will be back soon. Several years ago (8ish) the place where I work (production machine shop) went up in flames. About half the plant burned down, roughly 45,000 sq. ft. All of our cutoff machines, saws, several AB's and AC's were destroyed. Even most of our inspection equipment including our CMM. We were back at work the next day with plywood and plastic walls in early winter. We ran what machines survived, worked at salvaging anything else we could. We rented out space for cutoff, saws and a few other machines. Begged, borrowed, rented and bought new machines. It was tough that whole winter. Production was tough to meet. Building a new addition to what was left was finished by late spring/early summer and new machines were added.

Within 8 months from a near closure we put things back together with a better facility. If they have good insurance then they won't be down long and may even be better for it.

As others have suggested on another forum I frequent (CastBoolits) now might be a good time to support Nosler buy purchasing some of their products from wholesalers and retailers.

To show my support for Nosler I just jumped over to Midway and ordered a couple of box's of 69 grain bullets that I use a lot of. This is really bad news. Maybe their bullets are made off site from this plant.

Im down to about 2K of 69 & 77 CCs each, going to start looking for more today. Glad none were hurt.

That really sucks for Nosler as they have been gaining ground in making a name for precision bullets as an alternative to Sierras.

I have been meaing to try some of their bullets and especially some of their factory seconds from their retail website.

Since noody was hurt I guess I can say the following though:

Water and smoke damaged factory seconds anyone?
