Thread: does anyone buy RWS bullets by themselves (i.e for reloading)

  1. #1

    does anyone buy RWS bullets by themselves (i.e for reloading)

    as above

    if so in what calibre and where from and why them over others

  2. #2
    Wish I could but never seen them sold anywhere. I did ask the RWS rep a couple of years ago why we don't see them and he told me that the importers weren't interested in that side of the business as there wasn't much call for it.

    Correction I have seen them for sale on www.egun.de but importing them could be a problem legally through the post.

    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    RUAG is the wholesaler/importer but their sales dept leaves a lot to be desired!

    Yes it was the RUAG rep that told me this - he has since retired. A pity really because I was hoping to work on him and get them to consider it.

    Didn't know it was RUAG but just rang them

    They were very helpful and will ship any quantity to any RFD who orders them.

    boxes of 50 bullets
    3-4 weeks if they dont have the bullet or calibre in stock
    they have some in stock now but not a huge selection due partly to lack of orders

    Change in attitude perhaps? They haven't really pushed them have they.
    I'm sure that if they got them out there in the dealers that the product would sell, just as long as they aren't silly with their pricing. After all they do have a good range of products and make some excellant bullets.

    8x57,

    As we all know, no one uses their local RFD because they can get better prices on t'Internet and then complains that their "local" has no stock......

    That's not true Stan because you can't buy expanding bullets off the internet (exceptions from abroad and not legal - see other ongoing posts).
    You can't buy what isn't in the shops and ordering never seems to work. I do use my local dealer because I have quite a good rapour with them and they have been quite supportive of H4H, but still shop elsewhere if I see what I want on sale.
    RUAG really need to get their act together and get RWS products in the shops because their products will sell on quality alone.

    8x57,

    I'm trying to make the point that for an RFD to stock everything he needs customers to use him.
