this is not much help...

I have only mail ordered MG bullets... from MG.

 

poke them an e-mail or call and ask when they next expect to make what you need.

check the web page a lot then.

Are they better than RMR 124gr Match Winner?

I like them better, IMHO, they are a better built bullet and the bullet profile works better in my barrels when loading long for 9mm Major.

Great projectiles

so hard to get

ive had good luck with rmr

im considering switching to coated lead for availability

i still have 10k mg, but am looking at other options

Always liked them, but got tired of playing the game waiting for them to become available. Also of the mindset that long time customers should get first dibs.

 

But that is just me.

I don’t understand why they don’t try to get ahead a bit to keep an even inventory. I mean if a guy had to work all weekend to make 100k it would be worth it to take some of the pressure off. I don’t know what the output per day is but would think it’s several thousand. Something just doesn’t add up.

Definitely. They have to be feeling that impact as well or at least aren’t doing as well as they would be. I refuse to play the stock game when literally everyone else has inventory.

'play stock games'

 

ever tried to collect 100k of any ammo component?

that is closing in on a million dollars of inventory one way or another.

ETA: the math here is not obvious... I was thinking a few different sizes and

similar volumes for each kind.

 

MG may well be chasing stock games and I kinda doubt it.

They supply a lot of varieties so I expect they keep an eye on orders

and try to keep pace.  I hear they are popular.

my mind will not let me rest about my last post...

I think the overall point is good and I don't like my details.

 

I am not really right about a million bucks in componants...

a million bullets loafing around is 100k dollars. (ten cents a bullet)

I forgot to keep track of the signs attached to the values.

 

tis a lot of bullets... 

and mind the zeros or you will trip on the logs.

Well I meant 100k bullets not dollars. Also remember it doesn’t necessarily cost them ten cents to make one either.

Hi Farmer,

Quoted so as you get a bell.

I was not really thinking of your post... more the 'stock games.'

 

I was thinking 20 different types of bullets and 100k each  and all the logistics

then jumped to the wrong explanation.

Costs aside, I would not want the bullet at the bottom of 100k.

At even 5 cents it is still a large job to  move all that brass and lead.

 

just-in-time manufacturing makes a lot of sense for MG.

it can be frustrating for the customers.

I wasn’t directing that at you either, was just making a correction. 
Just for giggles I took a look at RMR, because they show quantity in stock. For just two of their in house bullets they show:

9mm 124 JHP @ 378K

9mm 124 MW @ 273K

This tells me that MG is either in trouble with finances, labor or suppliers.  Either way I hope they can keep going because they make a fine product and we can’t afford to lose anymore suppliers.

ok I won't quote fer the bell...

 

I'll find a way to accept that others make a bigger pile o bullets...

I have no idea why I've not purchased RMR bullets.

 

the statement of stock levels is of note...

 

MG has not given me the impression they were a large outfit.

That is based on very little evidence.

they are certainly larger than any Biz I've run.

If I understood, in the past they have stated supply side problems.

That could be anything. 

They also have said, during shortages, place an order and they will confirm

when they expect to ship.

 

last... they may move many millions and there is little chance we would know that volume.

 

I liked what I got.

Yes, I've gotten a case of 9mm 115 JHP last month.  You have to check pretty frequently to catch something in stock.  They had 45 230 JHP available for several days in the last couple of weeks and 9mm and 40 come and go pretty quickly.

 

Generally check around 8am, 10am, 3pm Montana time.

There's not a chance I'm playing the "check every day" game for stock along with order limits for something as plentifully found as bullets. Plenty of options out there. Find one that is accurate at USPSA distances (almost all of them?), the right price, and available all of the time.

Don't they limit how much you can order? I'm just not interested in having to constantly check a website when there are other bullet makers that offer the same product with better availability and sometimes even a better price. Honest question what makes MG special? 

 

Do you mean collect 100k dollars worth of a component at cost? I'm not a manufacturer so no.... that doesn't make much sense. I do have enough components to reload for a couple of years though at my current rate of 25-30k rounds a year.
