    Was thinking of trying some Precision Delta bullets in 9mm 124gr. For anyone who has used how is the quality? Is diameter and length pretty consistent?

    Even though this is plinking bullet would I get better accuracy from the JHP vs. the FMJ?

    I load 124 FMJ as my IDPA load for Browning Hi-Power. Very consistent/accurate bullet!

    I have gone thru about 5000 rounds of 9mm in both 115 and 124.
    No problems with them and great customer service

    I load lots of PD 124gr JHP's in 9mm, 180gr FMJ's in 10mm and 230gr FMJ in .45ACP. Excellent quality and service.

    HP's are more accurate than FMJ's.

    That being said, I have ran about 5K of these downrange myself.
    Good stuff.

    All I run is PD's in my service caliber handguns.

    I really like them, but I also have a lot of luck with Xtreme plated bullets which are cheaper.

    I have 2000 124gr. 9mm fmj's in 2 boxes that I ordered
    from Delta. Your delivery person will hate you, they are
    heavy. Customer service and quality have been excellent
    so far, I'm getting ready to order 2000 rounds of .45acp
    and a few 147gr. 9mm's.
    This is my own personal opinion, but I don't really care much
    for plated bullets, but these Delta fmj's work great.
    Mine are for practice and general plinking, not target work,
    and they fit the bill just fine.
    There are some fine bullet suppliers out there, but you won't
    go wrong if you decide to use Delta Precision Bullets.
    I am in no way connected with or even know anyone there,
    I'm just a satisfied customer.

    Don't know about 124gr, but 115gr Precision Delta is all I ever use. Cheap, high quality, (almost) always in stock.

    Thanks for all the feedback. I've noticed the FMJ seems to be in stock a lot more than the JHP. For plinking probably either one, but since the price is so close I really tempted to wait for the JHP.

    If any of you would like to share some of your load data on these bullets I'd appreciate. Thanks.

    Supercrew,

    Just wanted to echo the others feeling about PD fmj bullets - I use them all the time, they work great and IMO are the best value out there.

    I haven't noticed any significant accuracy differences between the PD FMJ's and JHP's.

    My favorite load for these is 4.0gr of Titegroup at an OAL of 1.135" and crimped to 0.377". This is a very accurate and soft shooting load which makes 135PF out of my G34 and 131PF out of the G17.

    PD is one of the better suppliers and very popular for most reloaders.

    I can't BELIEVE you people are advocating spending money like that!!!! Everyone that isn't a flatlander KNOWS that casting your own bullets is the most economical way to reload!!! YOU MUST ALL SURRENDER YOUR CRB CARDS IMMEDIATELY!!!!

    Now that I feel you are properly chastised... PD makes good bullets... but boolits are cheaper and better ;)

    Their swaged lead 38 bullets will lead your barrel if you try to shoot them too fast (anything over a mild load) They are cheap, but cast bullets are better unless you enjoy cleaning lead out of your barrel.

    I've had great luck with their 40 caliber 165 fmj, and 9mm 124 jhp. Great company. You might also check out Rocky Mountain Reloading. Google them.

    I've gone through the 2k 115gr 9mm bullets I ordered from them a while ago. No complaints and looking to get more when I have the cash.

    I am presently loading PD 124 JHP and just placed my first re-order.

    Good quality and price

    I also like the broad nose of their JHP. I shoot PPC (with paper targets) and the JHP produce holes that are sharp and easy to score... almost like wad cutters. I can see the holes pretty easily from 25 yards.

    You're not going to see an accuracy difference between JHPs and FMJs with handguns unless you're using a rest, and even then I doubt anyone would care.
