    Thumbs down No more Nork fork bullets!!!!!:(

    I just confirmed that north fork is no longer making bullets. Only a few bullets weights and calibers left. Its too bad they made excellent bullets.

    Yes, they are gone and I failed miserably in an attempt to get together a group of folks to make a last run buy from Mike before he closed the doors. He had agreed to make a run for ten boxes if I could get an order together. I didn't make it. He was one of my sources for the .411" diameter bullets for an up coming project, just one more obstacle on the road to adventure.
    Is there nothing so sacred on this earth that you aren't willing to kill or die for?

    Not to worry though. The new Trophy Bonded Tipped bullet is very similar including the grooves.

    Similar from the outside, but wholly different on the inside - No lead.

    From the description "bonded core" and a write up in Handloader it does have a lead core.

    Default NF Bullets

    I agree that NF bullets produced by Mr. Brady were top notch in all respects. I was fortunate to purchase a good supply of .411/.338/.308 bullets prior to Mike locking his door. However, I along with others will ration our limited supply. Maybe one day the NF bullet will come back to life.

    That's true, and I suppose you may be a part of that company now, Good news for sure. I recently got a card in the mail announcing the reopening of that company. There is a web site up for them and all looks good. I'll have to put in an order, I need some .411 and .416 solids and soft points.
