Where did the Nosler Accubond bullets go?

Does anyone know what is going on with Nosler and their Accubond bullets?  Until the last week or so they have been readily available, but now there are NONE available.  We finalized a load using the 180 gr. and we are just days away from fall big game hunting seasons and there are no bullets.

Not sure but here locally where I pick some up they have plenty on the shelfs. Which caliber are you looking for, and have you checked online anywhere??

Accubonds gone missing!

Cabelas is out.  Scheels is out (regional large retailer).  Nosler shows they have no stock.  Midway USA is out.  Natchez is out.  We found 2 dusty boxes on a shelf in a small hunting shop in the region and bought them this morning.  Someone said that there was some kind of an accident/explosion at one of their factories that shut things down for a bit.  Not sure what the scoop is, but we are good to go for a little while any way.

Very interesting.  I belong

Very interesting.  I belong to the Bosler reloading fourm and have heard nothing of the sort, but that does not mean it did not happen.  Glad you found some to hunt.  What caliber were you looking for?

The skinny.....maybe!

Goosehunter Jr..............we are using the Accubond 180gr.  I did an internet search today and found out that there was an explosion at one of their plants in Oregon, but this was back in June 2010.  I tried to find an update but found nothing.  I assume the fall inventory is made in the summer so it can get out to it's retailers, so maybe we are just seeing depleted inventories now since everyone is loading up (so to speak).  Please post any info. you find out.
