FMJ Bullets

My usual sources for bullets are either sold out or behind with orders. Can anyone suggest any good sources for bullets? Are 165gr or 200gr FMJ bullets okay for range loads?

Fmj is generally what is used at the range.

Zero has good bullets too, but only the 165gr and 200gr are available currently.

I'm thinking I might order some of the 165gr FMJ from them.

I've used them in 9mm, but I'm assuming they can't handle full power 10mm velocities. Are they okay for 1150ish fps?

They should be since they reportedly have thicker copper than the Berry's/Rainier plated bullets. I have no firsthand experience though.

Another option is PowerBond. They are excellent "copper bonded" bullets. I too am backordered at Precision Delta, but if I needed bullets right now, I'd order PowerBonds. They run in 10mm just fine. I have loaded thousands of them from 850 to 1200 fps with 6 different powders. They recommend normal FMJ load data. No special reductions like is called for by Rainier/Berry's.

Unfortunately, their prices have been creeping up to about $142/1000. You can order in quantities of 500.

Even though people would classify them as a "plated" bullet, I would put them closer to a Speer TMJ than a Berry's/Rainier.

You can give them a call. I recall a guy I shoot with called X-Treme about this very thing and they told him 1400fps was no problem. One guy I know loads full house .44RM with X-Treme and gives good reports.


But best to get it first hand.


I too prefer PD, just got my last order in after 5 months.


Good luck.


PS - Berry's makes a line of bullets with the -TP designation. This is for Thick Plating. They have a 165gr FP that they rate to 1450fps. I have not tried them.

I've yet to use them for 10MM but have used them for 40 and 9 and 45 for a long time. My 124gr 9MM mimics the winchester NATO ammo and I have not once had an issue in many thousands of rounds.

Hmm, does anyone use 165gr or 200gr bullets for range ammo? I can get Zeros for about $115/1000 in those weights.

I prefer 180s, but I have used plenty of 165s and 200s. Both will work fine. The 165s will have a little more of a snappy feel in my opinion.
