Thread: Western Bullet Company?

    Western Bullet Company?

    l am new to the forum and joined to see if anyone knows about this company. I've tried to contact them by phone and e-mail with zero success. They make/made a 41 Colt bullet that I'd like to order and if no longer in business I will need some further assistance, thanks!

    Accurate Molds can cut you a heeled one for .41 Colt.
    The ENEMY is listening.
    HE wants to know what YOU know.
    Keep it to yourself.

    I make and sell Lyman's 356177 heeled bullet. Soft cast at about 194 grains and comes out at least .408 diameter. Should be a pic in the WTS section. .10 each. I have put 500 in a small flat rate shipping for 7.15 but the one time I did, the box arrived in TX from Indian broke open. The buyer did get most of his bullets and I'll make it right. If I send that many again, I will double box and wrap wrapping tap over the entire box. The other 3 orders of 300 in a flat rate box arrived fine. Let me know.

    I'd say he's still in business, at least from the fact that the web site layout changed from the last time I looked at it about 2 months ago. I haven't ordered from there but do know getting ahold of someone is pretty hard.
    But I'd also say smkummer has the better deal.

    I don't post here much, but have followed some of the threads.
    I would caution you before you order from them, if it's not too late.
    I am still trying to have some type of communication from Western Bullet company from an order placed on January 16 of this year.
    Order Status

    Confirmation

    Order Status:
    Tracking:
    Order Date: 01/16/2017
    Order Number: WBC-4160

    I have sent several emails inquiring on the order/ship status with no response. Dialing the number listed on their contact page rings forever. No answer, no message, no answering machine. Nothing.
    Emails have been sent to orders, Jon (owner), info email boxes. I have referenced the order number. I have replied to the order confirmation email. All to no avail.
    I had actually emailed the info address to ask about the bullets before placing the order and had a response. So, I ordered, paid via Paypal on their Yahoo merchant page. And it stopped there.
    At this point I am out $61 as I can't recover it from Paypal.

    I found this thread after another search for Western Bullets to see if I could find an alternate means of contacting them.
    - Have a good day and a better tomorrow...

    reL Western bullett CO, Missoula, Mt

    Western Bullet CO. P.O.Box 998, 904 Kensington Ave., Missoula, MT 59806 (406-728-4801) should be avoided.

    Short version;
    - un responsive
    - no confirmation of orders placed
    - do not return emails
    - do not respond to calls at the listed phone number (406-728-4801)

    Long Version;
    Originally, in search of a "Collar Button" bullet (0.457 Dia / 190 Gr weight) vendor Vs casting my self.

    Tried several other ways of communicating with Western Bullet all to no avail.
    1 - contacted Missoula Chamber Of Commerce "Not a member". they do not know who runs the co.
    2 - contacted Missoula "Municipal Court" talked to Stacy - 406-552-6180, she stated they are a ligitimate business , she suggested the "BBB".
    3 - contacted the Missoula Police 406-552-6300, said they know of the biz. location "..a small plaza", suggested going to Civil Claims court
    4 - filed complaint with "BBB" in Spokane Wa. BBB N. W., Spokane, WA 406-303-3296 or 509-455-4200 (The rulling BBB district office for Missoula.)

    If you Google Earth the street address you will see Western Bullett is a store front in a small plaza just behind the "Kings Christian Church" with other small Biz. on both sides "Master Barber' and on the other side "Garden Mother Herbs".

    5 - called the "Garden Mother Herb shop" they say hardley anyone ever there.

    If your trying to do business with Western Bullet Co. you may find it difficult to impossible as I did. If you find that your credit card was charged, suggest you go to small claims court listed above. "BBB" cannot force Western Bullett Co to do anything.
