9 and 45acp bullets

I just noticed I'm running out of 9 and 45acp bullets and thought I would ask what's new on the market.

I used to order from berry's, their HHP's, and have great results with them but wondering what's new, inexpensive and can handle loads close to or same as jacketed bullets.

Try some coated bullets from Missouri Bullet Co. The price is modest, they are accurate and don't foul bores, yet they can be driven to jacketed bullet velocities. Here's their web site: http://www.missouribullet.com/

Acme is my go-to. Good shipping rates.

I load their .38s with good results, and will try .45 acp when next I run low.

I have done alot of business with them too, loaded several thousands of the .223 55 grain fmj's for plinking.

Hey Ranger you noticed their price has been climbing?


Here is another good vendor to add to the ones above, very cost worthy.

I see no difference in accuracy, but my P345 only likes 'em seated deep. My other 45's don't care.

Ditto on that, also see no difference 0 to 25 yards on everything from 380 to 45 colt and all in between.

Thats interesting

I was buying and shooting just about every plated bullet and getting about 5" groups at defensive ranges (under 10 yards or so). I switched to the HHP and started getting <1"-2" raged holes depending on how fast I was shooting. I really expected to hear about the coated bullets being better or worse than regular plated bullets.

What size groups are you getting now?
