    I have shopped everywhere I can think of and can't find anymore of these bullets. Anyone have an idea?

    Yep, you're right. Was looking for Hornady though. I fixed the title. I tried the Sierras when I worked up the load for the .300 but had better consistency with the Hornady so I am being stubborn.

    Soon enough we will have to buy non-lead based bullets any way and I'll really be screwed. Thanks for the input.

    If you are looking for Hornady #3070 then you're in trouble as they have suspended manufacture of them to focus on more popular products. Closest you can get is BTSP #3072. http://www.hornady.com/assets/files/2014ProductionList6302014.pdf

    Midwayusa is overdue on #3072 so you could sign up to be notified of stock.

    I've already volunteered my input on the lead ammo issue using the e-mail address provided by OFF.

    Thanks for advice. I also requested stock information from Hornady themselves in hopes they make them someday.

    If this is for hunting use, have you tried the hornady SST? It might give you better performance in the .300BLK.

    Doesn't seem to, but not certain. The load we have worked up works the best with this particular bullet.

    Check Curts Shooters discount supply, I believe I saw some last time in about 2 days ago.
