    I use their 230 grain FMJ. On my 2nd order of 1000. They work for me. Delivery times have been less that a week and another time 2 weeks.

    Have loaded about a 1k of a 2k order. I'm happy with them and the price with shipping for FMJ I don't think can be beat. I have another order on the way.

    I've used about 5K of their 230gr FMJ. There were only 2 defective bullets. In both cases, the metal jacket was misaligned. The were very obvious to spot so I didn't have disassemble anything. But 2 out of 5000 ain't bad. I would recommend them.

    I actually think the better buy is MONTANA GOLD?

    Yes, if you look at the *minimums* (ie, 1000 147gr 9mm bullets), PD looks cheaper. However, MG gives a great discount if you buy 3000 147gr 9mm bullets. Price is the same, if not cheaper. MG gives discount on ALL their bullets if you buy a case.

    And MGs quality far exceeds PDs.

    I've shot over 20,000 MGs, ordered 3,000 at a time (you don't get much of a discount for over 3,000). I order them on the weekend, and have them by Thurs/Fri that same week EVERY TIME.

    The PD are fine for plinking/practice ammo. I agree w/ ron59, the MG are better quality, but you have to buy a case for best price & havethem shipped to a business address to avoid shipping cost.

    I use their 230 FMJ and 115 FMJ. Good consistency on the chronograph. Decent price and fast shipping. They get my return business.

    Fred... while I do have them shipped to where I work... it's only $5.00 more to have them shipped to a residential address? Won't drive the price up that much more.

    I've used the 230gr cast lead bullets in .451 and 180gr FMJ in .40 cal. The quality is excellent and I hope to take advantage of their discount on a 10K order after the first of the year (planning on loading lots of 9 and 10mm next year :supergrin: )

    I used to buy MG exclusively but after my round counts went up found that PD is without question the better value.

    9mm MG 147g at case price for 3000 is $103.33 per thousand (home delivery)
    9mm PD 147g stock price is $88 a thousand delivered (2K minimum), $2 a K discount if you buy 6K, $4 discount if you buy 10K.

    MG bullets are great quality no doubt… but $20+ a K savings going with PD would be $480 a year at 2K a month for me. That’s well over 4K more bullets to shoot. Honestly though MG look the better bullet astheticallly, my guns can't tell the difference on paper with the same load charges.

    The MG is more uniform in weight & diameter. Over the same powder charges, the MG always out shoot the PD for me, but we are talking 15yds & beyond. For speed drills out to 15yds, doesn't matter that much IMO. I have a friend that only wants to shoot the MG because of their accuracy, but to 10yds going fast, it's you, not the ammo.:supergrin:

    There have been pictures posted previously of both PD and MG bullets. The PDs look fairly "rough" to me. MGs are the prettiest things you'll ever lay eyes on (bullet wise, that is. ;) ).

    Pds are not nearly as shiny as MGs. So I throw them in the tumbler. IMO PDs have been a far better buy in the quantities that I order. I don't shoot competition so the proposed accuracy differences are a non issue to me.

    It depends on the caliber. MG 230gr .45 bullets are kind of pricey compared to PD or Zero.

    MG is the only one of those three companies that does a decent job of packaging their bullets for shipping. With both PD and Zero, because they cut corners on packaging, I've had orders arrive with the boxes torn up and bullets loose in the shipping box. MG's heavy plastic bag inside a box inside a tightly fitting outer box is much harder for the shipping monkeys to damage.
