Yes, this one was not easy to find a berry compliant source. There is also soon to be a second source through National molding. James at National showed me the prototypes for their upcoming beads at SOFIC. Hopefully they'll be available later this year.

I bought red, green and coyote beads from Kurt at combatsystems. He buys them from the manufacturer, capewell aerial systems.

If you buy them from Kurt, he'll mark them up a bit but you wont' have to have a massive minimum quantity to order. I've been buying bags with 500 beads of one color at $0.68  cents a bead! Hopefully national will get that price down to under a few cents per bead.

You can try to go direct to Capewell but I don't have a direct POC there and I think they may require high minimums but you should try.

If you go through Kurt, please mention that I referred you (Alex Gallo):   kurtm (AT) combatsolutions.us
