March 2019 News Flash - Taipan is undergoing a resurrection.
An enterprising young guy, James, has arrived on the scene with the ability and the wherewithal to take it on. Over the next few months he and I are cranking up the machinery and getting back into production. Not full scale though, maybe half a million bullets, enough to pass on the tricks of the trade before the plant moves to a new home.
The new production prices have to reflect current costs so will be nowhere near the give-away prices that have been used over the past several years. As of Feb '19 we have the HBWCs up and running. As soon as machine replacement parts arrive there will be 270 caliber jacketed bullets followed by 303 and 308 calibers. When they are available for delivery they will be added to their respective price lists.
Please note, we will still work on a $250 minimum order. This is a manufacturing facility not a gun shop and it is hugely uneconomic
to gather, pack, print address labels, drive 6 Km to the Post Office and stand in a queue for 5 minutes for orders of only a few 100 bullets.These days of instant electronic communication, SMSs, emails etc have some downsides the worst of which is that they have encouraged people not to think
(don't figure out the answer to your query, send off an SMS and get the answer from the horses mouth) and because we do this a lot, then the recipient of the queries
gets bogged down, delays the answering and most prevalent with big firms, don't reply at all. See at bottom of the page for an example.
From now on only those bullets that are actually in stock will be listed.

In my personal experience it takes on average 8 emails to finalise an order placed with me when surely two would suffice, namely client to me to place the order and my reply advising cost and EFT numbers but it usually goes like this :-
1"Do you have any XYZs?"
2 I send a link to my site that lists what I have in stock.
3 "How many have you got?"
4 Good supplies otherwise they wouldn't be listed.
5 "Can I order 1000 and what is the cost including freight?"
6 To figure the freight I need to know where to ship them?
7 "Oh, I'm at (his address)"
8 I figure the freight and all up cost plus send EFT numbers.
Whereas all that is needed is "I would like to order 1000 XYZs to be shipped to this address."
I reply with all up cost including freight plus payment options.
All finished, everyone's happy. However most purchasers go through the 8 email rigmarole, it means little to them as they go through it only once. The seller however gets it several times a day every day and that's very time consuming.
