I wrote something similar a few posts up. I really like Nosler products but there is a problem going on...If your not the only show in town it’s tough to charge what you want for admission. Other other shows, movies, and musicals are just as enjoyable with more reasonable admission costs. Also, an apology holds much less value when it keeps coming for the same misbehavior.
I love Nosler products. Please don’t think I dislike Nosler products. I most certainly do not. But, it’s very very arrogant on Noslers part to think shooters will forever wait for scraps when other manufacturers provide equal accuracy, performance, and are in stock. If I don’t serve my customer someone else will with a smile and thank you.
Shooters are still going to shoot. They will find a way. If nobody made any bullets then they'd figure out how to cast some bullets. LOL
Either way people will continue doing what they enjoy. Many in this industry have only one hobby and this is it.
It Nosler just wants to keep on keeping on as normal. They offer up excuses with no results.
Other bullet mfg's will offer an excuse or two but they're still getting product on the shelf. Might not be as much as they once did but it's not terribly far away.
With Nosler it's bleak. Other MFG you might not see 5 boxes of a particular SKU on the shelf but perhaps there is 2 or 3 boxes. In other words they're still getting product out there.
Excuses used by Nosler
High demand. The infamous high demand.
Ok..so then make more.
Workers going around the clock
Get more workers. Add a shift or two.
Nobody wants to work
I beg to differ. If you offer it they will come. In other words pay them and the workers will line up
Lack of material
That's interesting because other companies seem to get raw materials
Customer service lack thereof
again hire more help.
You may or may not agree with my assessment of Nosler right now but the fact remains there is no product out there and we've past the excuse window and are in the midst of the results window. Meaning early on the excuses might have been valid but we're way past that phase and need results. Other companies out there are putting product on the shelf and there is no reason Noslder can't either...
unless of course they just don't really care to adjust and adapt and keep on keeping on like they always have and whatever and however the chips fall so be it. They are not budging in their ways and too bad!
