I snagged 200 of the 88s, for the new 22 Creed, because that’s all they’d let me grab. I got a shipping notification 2 hours after placing the order. I thought that was kind of special. They still show more in stock, this morning, so I might snag another 200 today....another $15.50 for shipping, though. :-(

I’ve got some 250-packs of the 88s on backorder through Midsouth, but who knows when they’ll actually show up?

I got greedy with the 250 packs when they were available but I've been shooting them up in my 22 creed pretty quick. I need to see how your 22-250 AI likes them but I haven't gotten off 75s there yet.

Got 500 "blems" and will slate them to a single 22PPC Fucking Improved Gasser. Have roughly a jazillion "real" ones of the same Lot and will feed the heard with them.

LOVE that bullet...................

Tried to snag 200 more 88s today.
They won't let you order more for 7 days.

Just as well as I probably have plenty and they sure aren't priced like midsouth had those 250 packs before

My 22/88 ELDs arrived from Midway, unscathed. The recommended twist rate is printed on the box at 1-7". I'd like to snag some more, but I'm not sure if my 1-8 twist Creed will spin them fast enough. Anyone running them out of an 8-twist 22 Creed or .22-250AI?

Brownells is currently showing the 22/88 ELDs in stock. I'm not sure if they have quantity limits, like Midway, but their prices are better.

Thanks for the nudge, guys. I ordered a couple more boxes of the 88s.

Brownells has the Berger 80.5gr Fullbore Target bullets in stock, as well. I already have a couple boxes that I haven't been able to try yet, but I've heard good things about this particular bullet. They always seem to sell out fast, whenever I run across them, so I figure there's got to be something to the rumors.
