Question Anyone know where I can get these varmint bullets?

Looking for a couple of boxes of the Hornady 55gr SPSX #2260.
http://www.hornady.com/store/22-Cal-.224-55-gr-SP-SX/

According to Hornady, the "obama effect" appears to still be in full-force.
The nice lady at Hornady predicts it'll be at least September till they make these bullets again.

Have called my local gunshops and checked the Web. Nada.
If you have a box and want to trade, or if you have a lead as to where a stash might be located, let me know.

thanks,
Allen

Cabelas indicates they still have them

http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/te...-box.jsp.form1

Midwayusa says they will get them in June

http://www.midwayusa.com/viewProduct...tNumber=144114

gander mountain apparently doesn't carry the sx line, and I didn't check cheaperthandirt because their supplies of reloading supplies is iffy at very best.

Hope this helps

Thanks for trying.
Cabela's is out of stock: http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/te...equestid=26956
I had called them earlier.

I asked Hornady about the June delivery listed on several websites and was told those dates are now being pushed back to September.

Bingo!
Found some.
http://www.midwesthuntersoutlet.com/...%2BJDyOLrQE%3D
I got the only box they had.
Must have been the last one in the US...
Still looking for another one or two boxes.
Was trying not to hoard components but next time I'll make sure to have a few extra boxes put away.

Good thing you called, I woulda just assumed Cabelas had them. You might try hitting a few of cabelas storefronts if you have them close to you, the in store inventory is not available online.
