    Fixin to load 38/357. Was having a hard time finding any bullets I was comfortable loading. Having never loaded lead I am wanting to wait a bit. Found zero bullets 158 gr jhp. Exactly what I was looking for. Like a dummy I chose a buy it now option on GB for some of these. After I BIN I though to look up the brand and see if I could find em cheaper. I did but the money was already spent. Anyways now I have something to get me started... Lesson learned, I hope lol
    So what are yalls thoughs on Zero bullets? They look good to me, but I'm still new and so far have only ever loaded montana gold

    Very good bullets. I have a bunch of 125 grain JHP's I load for 38 spcl. I shoot them in a Marlin 1896 lever action rifle and my friends can't believe how accurate the gun is shooting those.

    I've only tried the 9mm zeros, just a few hundred... good quality. Alot of competition reloaders favor zero. Personally haven't been able to find them ecomomical enough to sway me from buying PD 124g FMJ's.

    Very good, used by a lot of competition shooters.
     
  7. I can vouch for the hammer of Thor terminal performance of the .356cal, 121gr JHP (.38Super) on charging 4-legged vermin. :thumbsup:

    Based on my experience loading 115 gr 9's and 230 gr .45's, I would dare say you'll be more than satisfied with your purchase.

    I have bought and shot a lot of Zero bullets from Roze Dist. It is one of my favorite bullets in 9mm, .38Spl and .45.
    However for the last year or so, it takes two months to never to get any delivered.
    twice I ordered and waited the 4-6 weeks they asked and then Emailed to find out that bullet was not being made right then.
    I have switched to MG.A little more expensive but you will have them in a few days.

    Zero makes a great bullet. I have used their 9s in 115 FMJ & JHP and 147 JHP, 40s in 180 JHP and 45s in 230 FMJ. All are quality and shoot extremely well when you dial in the right powder/charge. They are often backlogged on orders, so availability can be a problem. They have a new 9mm design that is not listed on the website - a 115gr JHP that is similar to the Hornady XTP.

    Outstanding bullets at a very competitive price. I still have about 2,000 of these left, and they shoot very well.

    That's all I use anymore. The only problem is if they are not manufacturing that caliber, it does take awhile to get them. I usually order 9, 40 and 45's and end up getting one caliber at a time delivered. I think the 9mm took the longest last time. My 2¢.

    Zero is very well respected bullet maker I have shot 10's of thousands of 115 jhp 9mm through my 38super and almost as many 185 jhp .45's in various pistols yes get them you will be happy.
