Here in Germany, where I am at the moment they are a steal at only $41,000,000 per box. If you want I'll buy a box and send it to you for only $41,500,000 which will save you a cool half million. How's that sound? :)
Deal. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :handgestures-thumbup:

BTW get the price for the 165s please. I don't like monos. :) :)
The 165 grain professional speed tip would also be the one I would get and will try first. The dealer here in the EU already told me now way, they have a minimum 1,000 round order. I also contacted NECG and asked if they could get it into their next order. I suspect their order will be big enough to meet all of RWS minimum requirements. I know that won't help you guys in Australia, but perhaps I can help determine if it's even worth the effort to try.
Looking at the number of my friends that have gone for short barrel .308 builds, either for compact handling or for use with moderators, I think they would sell here in the US. At least until an American company wakes up and offers the same.

I heard back from NECG that they would get me a couple of boxes of the 165 grain professional speed tip in the next shipment. So anyone that wants some in the US you can let them know.

Thanks Bob. Watching with interest.

They will certainly be available here. The usual minimum import here is 10packets/1 case. If a dealer would like to put that on the shelf, we will be able to buy them by the packet. If not, some individual will need to stump up for the minimum 1 case.

C'mon Theo - one case isn't much; and you have flogged off your 30R stash, so you've got the cash and the space. :D

I don't know why I am even giving this space in my head. I have three types of 308 factory ammo, good dies and good components. It's a disease :lol:
