RMR Bullet Company.. Are they trustworthy?

I recently ordered 2,000 115gr 9mm projectiles from RMR Bullet company based out of Lewiston, ID. I received my package with dissapointment once I saw they were in a USPS SMALL priority mail box. I knew there was no way that there were 2,000 projectiles in the box. I weighed the box and it came out to almost 17lbs, I know 2,000 115gr projectiles should way ~33lbs. I assume they accidently sent me 1,000 instead of 2,000. I just emailed RMR bullet company customer service, and I am awaiting their response. Have any of you guys ever used this company? If so, how was your transaction with them? Thank you for your time.

I've made a few purchases from them with no issues. I've never heard any negative comments about RMR. I'm sure they will resolve your issue. I'd give them a call as sometimes emails takes a while?

I have seen the owner post on the High Road forum (longdayjake) of something like that username. Seems like a good guy. I haven't done business with him.

Promptly received an email monday. He forgot to ship the second half of the order. Received the shipping notification that evening. Thanks for the replies. Glad I found a good projectile source. Have a safe new year everyone.

You might compare them to Missouri Bullet Company. I called them the other day and was very impressed. Using their 180 gr in my 10 mm. Good stuff. For 2000 9 mm 115 gr it was like $125. Cheap compared to options I have found. But I am very new to reloading.

I just received the rest of my order, plus they added a few extra. I've loaded and shot a couple hundred so far with no problems. Overall I am very pleased with them.

The RMR bullets are rebranded PowerBond bullets.

I thought they were Xtreme plated? At least some of them...?

Either way, they're still a GTG company.

They're PowerBond bullets. The owner posted it a while back on the THR forum. RMR buys bulk (100K and up per caliber) lots of bullets, doesn't name the actual manufacturer online, but resells the bullets as their own brand to make it look like they are the manufacturer.

Good to know. I must've missed that post on THR. I've had nothing but good results with RMR's stuff and their service... Same experience with PowerBond bullets (back when they were affordable). Right now RMR has some 2nds that are a decent value.

Interesting business model. RMR resells at a lower price point than their retail competitor source?

Other places do it too.

TJC sells Xtreme bullets for $84/K shipped for 9mm 115gr.
Xtreme retail direct is $91.78 plus shipping for the same thing.

Been good. Family is well. Busy writing my book. Business is moving more toward wholesale with a few niche loads for retail geared toward USPSA and IDPA shooters, a few of which I am sponsoring for 2014 season. Just need it to stop snowing. We're already over 10 feet of snow and it's only the first week in January!

I've probably bought 6,000 different bullets from them over the past two years and only had one bubble.

I was splitting an order of .224 50g BT 1,000 with a buddy and when they arrived I counted out 500 for him and then counted out the rest for me and that count came to 460. I called them about the shortage, which seem a wee bit big to ignore for those pricey bullets and received an apology and a new shipment of an additional 100 bullets to replace the shortage and then some.

Everything else has been as advertised and timely mailed. They seem like straight shooters. (pun intended)

Bought a thousand RMR 40 S&W 180 HP's and I gotta tell you I don't know how these are PowerBond offerings.

Completely different cavity profile and they appear to be identical to the Xtreme 180 HP's.
