    Have used them for years...

    124's for light 9mm loads
    230 RN for the 45 ACP.
    Good stuff and no complaints.
    The shipping has always been within 5 business days.

    I have shot about 20K of Daves bullets and they are excellent. You won't get all the smoke and mess that lead bullets give you. A bunch of us that shoot USPSA and IDPA swear by them. If you like jacketed bullets try the precision delta bullets. It's a different company that makes affordable jacketed bullets that work great as well.

    They are popular but the prices have risen to the point where you might as well buy jacketed. I prefer BBI's.

    I think Black Bullet International has a better bullet design. But I have also shot 10,000 of the Precision Moly.

    I've used them on my .357 Sig, very good, accurate, soft shooting.

    Looks like molly coating, simuliar to Bear Creek Bullets, which, by the way, are very good bullets too!

    Tried some today. 9mm 147gr. loaded with Unique. I liked them very much. A friend gave me some to try out. I am going to place a order for some. Shot them out of a G19 and no more fouling than shooting plated bullets. I really liked them.

    BBI is better. G23 eats many a year with factory tube in it.

    I'm fairly new to them, but have a couple hundred down the pipe, and they've worked well so far.

    230 gr RNF / .45 acp

    Gents, I have shot many thousands of Precision moly in 9mm and 45 but have never tried the BBI bullets. For those of you that say BBIs are better, how so? I'll never pass up a better bullet. thanks

    I loaded a bunch of them in 9mm, 10mm, and 45 commercially. A lot of this stuff was shot in Glocks with no fouling issues.

    For the price, I had just as soon use Precision Delta.

    Tests with Clays and 230 gr Precision Moly show the same velocity with .4 gr less powder than with Precision Delta. In competition more powder equals more recoil equals more time equals lower score.

    I have good luck with the Precision Bullets, but they do not perform as well as jacketed in my G-24 barrel, and they are just as bad in my HK USP Compact. They leave a lot of lead and are hard to clean. I am using Titegroup at 4.25 grains with the 185 Precision. Oddly enough, they work fantastic in a Bar Sto barrel in my 5 inch 1911. They chono faster in the 5 inch gun tan the 6 inch Glock barrel.
