I'm hoping someone here has some insider knowledge.

 

I've been waiting almost 3 months for their 185gr JHP to come back into stock.

 

Every time I've called I've been told something a little different - '10 to 14 days' or 'within a month.'

 

I don't have enough history with them to know if this is common with .45ACP, I've been buying 9mm from them for several years.

 

So, hopefully someone can fill me in so I can decide if I need to find a different bullet.

 

Thanks.

I had a conversation with them on regarding this bullet a couple years ago. At that time I was told that they don't run that bullet very often so it was difficult to predict when they would have it in stock. The Nosler Custom Comp is a great substitute for this bullet and Shooter's Pro Shop has sales on seconds and over runs from time to time. I now run the 230gr in part because I got tired of availability issues on the 185's and because the G30 I got has ejection pattern issues with the lighter bullets. I would pick a different bullet.

Well, after comparing prices, I jumped on a couple cases of Montana Gold, I've shot a bunch of it over the years and always thought it was too pricey.

 

The Nosler Custom Comp's at Shooter's Pro Shop came in at 17.3 cents a piece, the Montana Gold Came in at 15.8 cents a piece.

 

That is quite a jump up from the 13 cents a piece I was paying for Precision Delta.

 

I know Zero is at 13.8 but decided on the Gold.

 

Anyways, my wallet is a lot lighter, thanks for the suggestions.

Is there some reason y’all aren’t shooting polymer-coated boolits? I get it for 9Grenades, maybe, but not for other handgun rounds.

JHPs group better and smoke less than polymer. I'm happy practicing with coated, but I'll spend the extra $3 or whatever to shoot a match knowing that smoke will not be an issue.

"PD is in the process of re-designing our 185 JHP. It will have an updated profile, updated jacketed design, and cavity. It will also be manufactured on a different machine. Our original design has been around a long time, and works well, but the new bullet will be better in every way. I expect the new design to be available in 2-3 months."
