As I shall soon have an income once again I am planning on buying a thousand or so .452 LRN 230 or 200 grain. I also need 180 gr bullets for my .30-06. I haven't worked up a load for my .30-06 so I'm just shooting Rem Core-lokt which my rifle seems to like until I can get some range time. Where is a good place to order some cast bullets for my .45? Last time I ordered I got 1000 200 gr SWC from oregon trail. I might consider trying plated bullets but I think I'd prefer to stick with lead and just use a RN instead of SWC since they gave me a few feeding problems. I've got cases and powder and I'll pick up the primers locally. I probably won't order more than 1000 of each bullet but that might increase for the .45 if the deal is good enough and I can afford it.

Good luck finding a "deal" on lead bullets. The price has skyrocketed in the last couple months. I like the Oregon Trails Laser Cast bullet, and have just ordered another 5K from Cabela's. That order will put me at 10K in stock. I was lucky enough to get them for $51/K not the $92/K they are now getting. There are cheaper bullet makers out there, but you take your chances. Since you only want 1K, you are in a better position than me.

You will have to look long and hard to beat Stonewall's prices. I use his 260 gr. LSWC in my ACP ammo and am having great succuss. He is a pleasure to do business with.
Are they a clean looking bullet without any bits of lube clinging to the bullet?

Robert puts Alox on the exterior, if that matters, so the bullets are a little sticky. But I don't have any chunks of lube rattling the bottom of the box, if that's what you're concerned about.

Yes, that does matter. When I place a bullet on the case I want to be able to let go without the bullet sticking to my finger. That would interrupt my usual reloading pace. I like a dry bullet without bits of lube stuck here and there.

I've used these in the past and they were pretty good. He's a retired deputy (3rd largest in the US) and a lot of his local customers shoot Glocks. No reported probs with lead or KB's. Tracy

If he's got them ready, he'll ship right away. But he is busy and does them in "batches". I haven't bought from him in 3-4 yrs. I get mine now from Valiant Bullets. They don't ship or take credit cards--------I pick mine up at the local gunshow (here this weekend ;) I'm going tomorrow). 256-748-3333 Call them next wek and see if they come anywhere near you. Best prices anywhere. Tracy
