Precision's pricing is similar to Bear Creek, if you buy the Precisions by the case (gotta buy more than 1000...much like MG). I might just try some more of their stuff.
As for plated vs FMJ pricing, in some bullets, the plateds are cheaper. i.e. X-Treme 147gr from TJC are cheaper than any of PD's or MG's 147gr FMJ/CMJ. I've got a little more than 1000 of those X-Tremes left. I don't plan on ordering any more of them.
