    Have you tried Home Depot or Lowes Ramset loads?

    Use Menards all the time for years green is best in my NEF 22. 5.88 per hundred. Sometimes they have 18 to 20 percent off. Watch for sales. If you find anything cheaper let me know.

    Expensive route to go but Cabelas has the flat tip non crimped loads in the training supplies section for 15.00 per hundred. Bumper boy sells them for 12.00 for the number 4s. A lot of building supply houses or lumber houses will all have them too for around 6.00 per box. Trick is finding non crimpes. Let us know what you turn up.

    I prefer the crimps with the painted ends because they are made to work when there is moisture present(construction sites/concrete work). The ones with the paper ends don't work when wet See raincoat thread............

    Don't have the contact but our training group bought a case, 5000 or 10,000 don't remember, quite a few duds and they cost about what HD Ramset loads cost. I agree about the difficulty of removing the empties, I just reload more often, you can also use an awl or small screw driver to push the empties out.

    These loads are for a 22 bolt action and Paul
    They come with a wax tip not the paper your referring to
    Wayne is getting me a # Monday but if someone knows
    A supplier that carries wax or a primer that is not crimped
    That will take a little moisture please post

    I think the outfit in Minn is Pac Industries. I have their contact information somewhere but haven't been able to put my hands on it recently.

    I bought a case (10k rounds) of RAMSET crimps on eBay for $167 ($1.67/box). (I was having trouble even getting them at any price at the local Menards & Lowes.) But the eBay ones appear to be old and I get about 10% weak launches from the Bumper Boy. Seems OK for the price.

    I do need a screw driver sometimes to get 9 out of my blank pistol. I just keep one in the box.
