I have not loaded any Zeros in a long time. Back when I did, I thought they were some of the best target bullets available, right there with premium offerings from Hornaday, etc.

I have Zeros in .45 acp JHP's, shoot great. They reportedly are the source for some other "brand name" bullet companies.

I load their 158 gr .38 caliber bullets in my 357 mag revolvers and rifle.

I like them a lot.

Here you go. Powder Valley also sells Zero bullets.

When you want something better that Xtreme, Berrys or Rainier order some Zero bullets.

The 115 JHP 9MM is great. I think the .45ACP is jacketed not plated.

Look up Roze Distribution, that is who I bought them from many moons ago.

Oops, missed ironhorse1's link.

I've burned through several K of them in 40... they work great. I still use them for my polygonal barrels that don't like the xtreme's so much.

I have heard good things about them. In fact, I was going to buy them myself, until I got into casting... Goodluck getting me to buy any pistol projectiles now...

I've been using some of the 55gr .223s, got a deal on them. Now I'm running through them because it didn't realize they weren't BT and are kind of a pain to load.

Thanks everyone for their feedback! Sounds like I would have no issues with them. I will start with some 45 ACP 230 grain FMJ.

Thanks again!!

My favorite and most accurate 45 ACP target load in my HK USP Match is the Zero 230gr FMJ, with 4.8gr W231, WLP primers, seated to 1.26". Load is safe in my gun, but I make the disclaimer that you need to work up your own safe load in your gun.

I use plenty of Zero 40 cal and 9mm as well. Buy in bulk and it's similarly priced with plated bullets

Zero is my first choice for jacketed or swaged lead bullets.
Might as well ask about Nosler, except Zero are reasonably priced.

I used to use Zero until the price went way up. Then I switched to Montana Gold until that price went way up. Now I am back on Zero.
