    Just place an order for 1000 124 HiTek bullets. Not sure how the other suppliers are doing but thought it best to order more now. Price was very competitive at $.076 each for 1k delivered.

    I bought 1K 147gr FPs to sample last Sunday...still no shipping info, but the homepage suggests 1-2 weeks behind now.

    I'm in no rush, as I am still trying to dig myself out from all the 'samples' I purchased when components starting getting more scarce. :)

    My order finally shipped, so not too longer of a wait with DG (just got my order confirmation, so now I know what "DG" stands for). :)

    No, just the bullets. You still need brass, primers and powder to make a round.

    MBC is my go to and they are 4-8 weeks back logged and add another 2 weeks to that for how slow shipping is currently.

    Ordered 1k of 230gr RN on 09/11, shipping notice on 09/22, rc’d today (09/25). I also was unaware of the acronym until my notice. I am planning on a range session tomorrow, so I will see if they are indeed that good.

    What is a DG? Dragon Gold? Damn Good? Secret supplier that only those in the know can recognize?

    I'll let the more qualified answer but I follow cast lead data.

    Thanks!
    The only powder I have is Unique. Trying to figure out if I can use that with the 115 or 124 grain bullets.

    If talking about Unique with a 124 gr coated lead in 9mm, then absolutely. Unique is great for that. I load in the high 4s under coated 124 gr TC cast.

    And cast data is appropriate for coated cast bullets.

    Typically not.

    OAL is specific to each bullet and chamber. In my experience, I seat a cast TC bullet much shorter than a round nose FMJ in order to keep the shoulder from creating interference in the barrel. Otherwise it won't chamber.

    Truncated cone.
