    If you want a jacketed bullet, for 9mm 147gr, here is what I have used.
    Montana Gold - $110 per 1000 (must buy 3000 for this price)
    Precision Delta - $(101 per 1000 but discount available if buying > 6000)

    But I'm now using a MOLY coated bullet (basically lead, with a hardened cover to reduce smokiness).
    Bear Creek, $72.50 per 1000, discounts available for more than 10,000.

    Saving almost $30 per 1000? No brainer for me, moly all the way.

    I like the Rainier 147 RN-FP for 9mm

    In 30-30 I use Magnus cast bullets. I use the 100 RN-FP, 115 RN and 150 FP and get very respectable accuracy with all three.

    I don't load the others.

    Once I find a bullet that works in my gun(s) and is accurate, I'm done looking for deals and use that.

    I recently started using Xtreme bullets from Tjconevera in 9MM (124gr) and I am having the same great results as when I was using the MG 124gr CMJ.

    Will be trying the Xtremes soon in 45 ACP.
