LF: 250w SE MH bulbs

Anyone have some 250w SE bulbs? My new Hamilton bulbs are duds, but want to make sure everything is working with my brand new Reef Brite ballasts and pendants. Any kelvin is fine, just need working bulb(s).

Nevermind. I discovered the white wire in both pendants came loose from the small junction box. I think the relief for the power cable was too long and it pulled free. Multimeter to the rescue.

I'd have to look it up but there is a limit on how long the fixture cables can be. That limit is determined by the igniter on tar ballasts, it should be a specification on electronics. The lamps will usually fire even if the cable is too long but they will wear out and not fire sooner.
