Not sure about the website, but I had noticed that Cabelas was selling them again.

As soon as I saw that Cabela's was stocking them I ordered four boxes. Both of my Hawkens and the Bobcat love them. In the past I have gotten a steady supply from Deer Creek Products but figure that theirs are old stock and might run out soon. Knowing Cabela's I am sure that if there is not a high demand they will drop them so it might be a good idea to load up now.

Deer Creek also has the Buffalo Bal-ets that are getting hard to find.

could never get the 385 buffalo bullets to shoot in any muzzle loader ive owned. The ballets did pretty good though.

The 375 grain shot excellent in a number of my inline rifles. And also in my Green Mountain Barrel fast twist. In my Black Diamond XR they shoot excellent. But I found I have to push them kind of hard. A forum member years ago that also owned a Black Diamond XR booked an elk hunt in a state were only lead projectiles could be used. I suggested he try the 375 grain SSB, which he did. He found them liking 110 grains of Triple Seven 2f and was able to drop a large cow with them. Although as I remember it was about an 80 yards shot he said, and she only took and ran a very short distance.

The 270 grain ball-ets shot real good out of my Knight LK rifles. With about 80 grains of powder. In fact a person's son uses that same rifle every year for muzzleloader deer, and has never had a problem that I know of ... taking a deer.

I know a lot of you are into the brass and copper bullets, and that's fine. But in all honestly, I never had a problem killing a deer with an all lead bullet. Where that was a roundball (and buffalo bullet used to make some excellent roundball) or lead conicals.
