Default Can you beat my bullet pricing

Just out of curiosity, I'm wondering who buys bullets for cheaper than I do. I have never seen 9mm cheaper then Montana Gold's 1 case. But I know for 45, there are a lot cheaper prices out there. I don't care if its lead, plated or fmj, I just want to see what companies are cheaper than what I pay.... Thanks

Please no casting and OTD (shipped) prices only

Montana Gold 1 case of 115gr FMJ 9mm @ $305 per 4000 bullets ($76.25 per 1k)

Precision Delta 2k of 230gr FMJ 45 @ $260 ($130 per 1k) or $135 if you only buy 1k

Bear Creek moly 125 TC 9mm for $57 per thousand

Montana Gold website is showing 115 FMJ for $335 per 4K, that's $83.75 per thousand.

The last 9mm bullets I bought was a 500 count box of Bear Creek for $15 at the now closed Reloading Center in the SFV. So, after tax, it was just under $16.50/500 OTD.

Edit: I just remembered that I bought 3K of 9mm frangibles from Midway a few months ago. I think they were around $70/K delivered.

My buddies and I get wholesale prices with Xtreme. We split the freight and prices are per 1000.

9mm 115gr- $55
40 155gr-$70
45 200gr-$90
223 55gr-$70

There are guys on here that say they pay the same price for fmj as plated. I guarantee that nobody here is paying these prices on regular production fmj's.

To get the wholesale price, do you guys have to buy the 25k volume?

Also, I can't seem to find the .223 55g bullets on their site? Is this a new product?

I load almost exclusively this bullet in my .45 Auto: http://shop.snscasting.com/45-ACP-20...-45-200SWC.htm

I don't load a lot of 9mm anymore, but when I do it is PD 124gr JHP's, mainly because a case of MG is too many to keep "in stock".

Hey darksoul, you have to buy in at least 25k lots. You would be surprised how easy it is to get that much. They had 223 on their website awhile back, but I heard that their machine is down. I don't know if that is true. I hope they start making 223 again. It isn't plated, it's fmj. Looks alot like Hornady's fmj. Real consistant weight.

OK, that what I though on the pricing. I hope they come back with some .223, I ask them every time I order, hopefully other are as well.

Great prices but, not many can purchase the minimum of 25k to get that pricing...

MG 124 JHP is my favorite and old standby for the last 1-2 years.
I picked up 2k frangibles at midway for $100 a while back. $50 per K.
I wish I would have bought 20k. They run as well as MG's and don't send shrapnel back at me when shooting steel.

I might try bear creek again at $57 per K for 125tc from an RO near my house.

The group buy on xtreme sounds like an awesome deal.

M has, since the Roman Empire, meant 1000 (see mille).
However, just to confuse things, someone decided about 30 years ago to also use M to stand for million (see computer industry), so "k" has become the new shorthand for 1000.

How about FMJ blemished/pulled projectiles for cheap with free shipping.
http://www.shop.rmrbullets.com/

Anyone have any leads on cheap .458 or .459 gas checked bullets?

I also bought from extreme when they had the wholesale pricing.
9mm 115 grn plated, 56$ shipped. On my last 1k, I was able to load each k for about 90$. That's the cheapest I ever seen bullets. I love me some xtreme bullets.

Anyone know of the cheapest place for .45 ACP 200 or 230 gr JHP?

The Hydrashocks from RMR is tempting but they're 185 gr...

$233 for 3500 115gr 9mm (shipped)

I've only loaded their 200gr .45 RNF, but they've shot great.

The 115's and 124's from Precision shoot just as great. If your 45 will feed SWC style bullets, try a sample of the Precision 200gr SWC's next time, I think you'll like them better than the 200RNFP.

wax is cheap. <$10 for enough. If you are paying $1 a pound for lead (let's say, the next three lead posts will be folks saying they paid less), then you get 7000 grains of lead for a buck.

If you are casting 45/70's or shotgun slugs at 500 grains a pop you get 14 per pound (dollar), or 7.1 cents each. $71 per thousand. That's for a 500 grain bullet.

If you are shooting 250 grain bullets, that's half cost. $35 per thousand. If you are shooting 100 grain bullets, that's even less. approaching 12 bucks per thousand or so.

Not factoring your time to cast.
