I went to my favorite bullet factory today, Western Nevada in Carson City, NV, and found that they had closed!
Not to worry, it was sold back to the original owner, Jim House and his daughter Angela. They are completely refurbishing the place and expect to be in full production come June. The new name is Silver State Bullets llc.
They are getting all new machinery so they are still looking at what to make. Jim asked what kind of bullets I wanted. He is going to make hard cast (7˝ % Antimony, 2˝% Tin, BHN 24-26) and soft cast cowboy bullets (3% Antimony, 1˝% Tin BHN 15-16). What I shoot is pretty straight forward and they are already on their proposed list. Except for a 45 cal. 200 grain RNFP for my Schofields. But I said that I’d ask about what kind of bullets you guys wanted.
Well, now’s your chance. What kind of bullet do you want? Either email me or call Angela at 775-246-9971.
