We are finally getting around to sorting some brass.  So far we have .223's and .40's.  Soon we'll have some 9's and .45's ready to go. 

 

Also, we're adding new coated bullets with no lube groove to the site on a weekly basis.  Next up will be a .40 180gr FP and a .45 200SWC, both grooveless. 

 

Check them all out here:

Brass is cleaned but not sized, correct?

Bah... you been promising that .40 180gr groove-less any week now, for weeks.

 

Fortunately I've sworn off live fire practice so my golden bullet stash is holding up okay.

It's on the way, literally.  It's quite a process getting the custom cherrys for these new bullets, then having to wait to have them cut, test run them, test fire them, etc. 

 

I will post on here the minute we get them done!

The 147 9's with no lube groove have been great! Will be ordering another 10k for the IN state match.

(I'm just messing with you guys, I know you're working your butts off to produce and ship orders and develop new products.)

What about case pricing?  

 

I love your bullets, but I can pick-up the other guys coated 9mm-147's for $225.00  3000/case shipped.  You guys are at $243.00 shipped... You guys are cheaper per 1000  $76.00 to their $85.00, but they have you beat when buying in any sort of volume/case.

 

 

ETA:  I see you have 125gr coated 3700/case ... $276.00 shipped which is cheaper than the other guy, per bullet.

Exactly, who buys less than 3000 at a time?

What's better about a groove-less bullet?

Shorter bullet, more room in case... More surface area to keep the gasses behind the bullet.

Excuse my ignorance, please tell me the difference in these.
And which one do I need to start reloading to shoot USPSA for ACCU Shadow.

The non-coated ones are cheaper, but smoke like crazy.  I'd go with the Coated, non lube groove 9mm 147 or the non lube groove 125RN.

Do you offer coating on all your bullets?  I don't see it as an option but suppose I want to try a bunch of your 160g .45 to try some crazy .45 minor in Production or something stupid like that....

We actually have about 700 on the shelf that are yours if you want them.  You'll have to call the order in, as they are not offered on the website.  The shitty thing is that we don't plan on making any more for a looong time, probably at least 3-4 months since they are a massive pain in the ass to run.... we have to hand feed them all through the sizer since the bullet shape is impossible to collate.

 Nice fail dummy...as SNS said, "those" bullets aren't listed as a coated option on the web page.  So EABOD.

I had not seen these bullets by anyone else and was just currious... 

 

How about the .45lc 180 rnfp's?  Are they a pain too?  I buy some from somebody else right now but I like to have options...

 

Thanks
