Default 135gr RN DG Bullets

Anyone shooting these?

Got some earlier this week. Really like them. Loaded up some laddered loads and chrono'd them today... 3.0 to 3.8gr of Tightgroup.

3.2gr @ OAL of 1.13 shot the best. Made 130 power factor. Cycled well in my CZ SP-01. Nice grouping at 25 yards. Pretty soft shooting too.

I also liked 3.0gr... soft like a bunny fart but it doesn't make minor.

These shot better than the Blue Bullets and BBI I have tried. The coating seemed nicer too. Didn't give off that funky, burning plastic smell. And the weight of the bullets are much more consistent. Actually run a little heavier at 135.5 to 136 grains but consistent. BB and BBI seemed to have more variability.

Best of all, they run about 6.5 cent per with the 15% off coupon code AP15.

I am currently running Bayou Bullets 135. Slightly different profile, but it appears to be the same coating (hi-tek).

Made minor pf comfortably at the Roadrunner Shootout over 3.8 grains of Universal in 4.25" barrel.

I've tried a couple of other types of coating from other bullet makers and I would agree that hi-tek doesn't smell as bad.

15% is a solid discount considering how much of the of the cost of a handloaded round ends up coming from the bullet.

I haven't tried Bayou but have read good things about them. I ended up ordering a case of 3400 of the DGs for $216 shipped. So I'm good for a bit.

You mean quantity I ordered? I actually bought a case. 3400 total. Shipped in 5 x 500 count bags and 1 x 900 count bag. Very nicely packed.

Haha. DOH. That makes way more sense.

Actually, I didn't get either. I ended up getting the Hornady Lock n Load Auto Progressive. Very happy with it. I got a pretty nice deal on one. Very happy with it so far. I have already cranked out about 1200 rounds out of it.
