    Looks like we might be getting a new ammo maker in my area. It would be cool if they posted some information here so we can support a local business.

    Welcome to the forum. Good luck with the new venture.

    Welcome to the site. I'm glad you found this thread. There are lots of potential local dealers and customers here that would like to hear more about your company.

    Let us know when you get more info.

    Thank you for your interest, We have been focusing on product processes, and load development for some time now, there are a few final details that will fall into place this month. After they are complete we would love to talk about WRCC with anyone.

    WR Cartridge Company: Are you still in business? Your web site lists prices as $0.00 and you haven't responded to my email (via your web site) last week about over pressure loads in the 147 gr FMJ . I've had 2 blown primers with severe damage to the case heads (the one round shot over a chronograph registered over 3000 fps), and am going to basically junk the remaining ammo I have; pulling the bullets and saving cases that don't have numerous dents and dimples.

    I received this reply this evening, which is encouraging. I am eager to see this business succeed, and this suggests they will do what is necessary to correct the problems:

    "We have not had any issue with our 147gr .308 up until now, we had a head separation on a piece of .308 match ammo recently though.
    I would prefer to inspect the cases for OAL prior to tearing down and recharging, they will be charged with 45gr of military powder, I am traveling so I don't have access to the USGI load data, but if I can recall it would be in excess of 46gr.
    I would like to make you satisfied with our product, I can give you a refund, or a pulldown and inspect, and reload."

    Kenjo,
    I sent a reply last week once I received your e-mail, I would like to inspect the product, we stand 100% behind out product and desire to make you and everyone else that buys our ammunition completely satisfied with it. Please send me your contact info to wrcartridgeco@yahoo.com
    Thank you,
    John

    Also we have stopped posting our pricing online as we are looking into a new method of web presence.

    WRCG, I'm am always looking for a ready supply of ammo for my 6.8 SPC AR-15. Have you guys considered selling and/or loading 6.8mm SPC cartridges?

    Are these guys still around? It seems half the posts about them asks "Are these guys still around?"

    Do they need help in the "Internet presence and marketing" department?
