I just recieved my Beowulf ! I have an order in with cabelas for ten boxes but they don't arrive for two weeks ! So just wondering if there's anywhere near the bay area that might carry some in stock ?? I'll drive up to an hour away from San Francisco to locate some ?

My friend bought some at the Gun Exchange in San Jose, but he said he can get it at the Bay Area Gun Vault in Mountain View.

You might want to call Reeds in Santa Clara they might have some.
Here are a few other places to check:
U.S. Firearms Co. in Sunnyvale
Kerley's in Cupertino
Valkyrie Arms in Santa Clara
Target Masters in Milpitas
Mel Cotton's in San Jose
Sportsman's Supply in San Jose

Any of those might have some on hand.

You'll be in luck next year, Alexander let SAAMI have it for production without paying a royalty to Alexander. $1.50 a round from Cabelas is kind steep...Wikipedia said it's like a 45-70, get some black powder and reload your brass with that. Call up the local Fire Department first, gonna look like the range is on fire.

Triple A Sporting Goods in Vallejo does sometimes, but I keep buying them out of everything but the 400 grain SP's.

If you need 400 grain SP's I have like 4 or 5 boxes I think of that stuff, but can't use it cause it doesn't chamber correctly in my pistol upper.

Last weekend at the Cow Palace gun show you could have bought some.

LoadX usually has .50 Beowulf and .458 SOCOM at pretty good prices.

Miwall might even have some but LoadX is where I buy.

Yeah I tried the LoadX stuff and it seems great to me.
