    I bought my first batch of supplies at sportsmans wharehouse now I am trying to find some cheaper, but I am not finding anything at midway, natchez, googling it etc. I paid $25/250 for 124gr plated round nose HSM. It shoots pretty good so I would like to stay in the same gr size. Can it be had any cheaper online? Most places are running about the same price plus shipping so its cheaper to buy it locally.

    $25 for 250 rounds is a steal, I generally pay near twice that in washington.


    OOPS.. I missed which forum I was in, this thread is about Just bullets for reloading not already assembled rounds.

    $70-$80 per thousand is not hard to do if you look and buy in bulk. Same process ussually works for primers and powder, the more you buy the better the price. Primers and Powder can often be combined in shipping charges but you have to buy in bulk to make up fhte hazematt fee.

    It doesn't matter. Zero, MG, Precision Delta and others. They all work fine.

    You can do 1000; but there's a $5.00 charge. Still not a bad price.

    You need to order in bulk to get the most savings. Bullets in blocks of 2000-4000, powder several pounds at a time or ideally combined with primers by the case (5000).

    Most of the places I've looked at that specialize in producing/selling bullets ship for free (using USPS flat rate boxes).

    I called Precision Delta on Fri ready to order. Theres no eta on the availability of 124gr 9mm. One of their machines is broken and they have a 3-6 month back log of orders. 115 was available.

    Montana Gold.

    3750 124gr FMJ for $292, shipped. That's slightly more than PD, but they ALWAYS have their stuff in stock.

    That works out to a little over $77 per 1000, but their quality is better as well.

    The more I see all these bullet prices, the more I appreciate casting my own.

    If you could just figure out how to electroplate them in the backyard you would have it made.

    Most people would rather avoid the problems inherent with pure lead and lube.

    I can't shoot lead indoors, and that is most of my shooting.

    From doing my own research I found this to be the best deal.

    You guys know a lot more on the subject then I do but the math doesnt lie.

    I bet you could plate them just fine with electrolyte and a car battery charger... but the thickness you'd need seems like it would take ages to do that way.
