I can buy very few reloading components locally.

Try www.magnusbullets.com

They are good stuff.

How about www.bullshop.gunloads.com ? He only charges $10 for up to 40 pounds.

Try www.northeastbullet.com. $43 for a box of 1000 delivered to your front door. You can get hard or soft cast with either moly or wax lube. You can't beat the price or the bullet.

Sign up at national bullet for their e mail bulletins. Every once and a while they will have a free shipping sale. They had one last weekend.

My favorites come from www.precisionbullets.com, they're cast bullets with a solid layer of moly/teflon/whatever over the outside and do not cause leading at all. Their prices are cheaper than many plain cast bullets, you can buy a USPS bulk rate box full for $8 shipping, I got 3500 .40 bullets for about $140 delivered.

Midstates:

& Oregon Trail:
http://www.laser-cast.com/
But both seem to work well in my commander sized, 1911.

Having trouble finding good cast bullets locally was the very reason I started casting my own and stockpiled several hundred pounds of Linotype years ago before California stopped letting us buy scrap wheelweights and Linotype!
My prayers are with you!!!!!!

Every time I see a thread like this one, the idea of starting to cast bullets on a commercial lever wanders through my mind again..... :banghead:

Going back to the magma engineering website ....again:scrutiny:

I just ordered from National Bullet. $9.00 flat rate shipping was nice and they are always running some sort of daily discount. Said to allow 2 - 3 weeks for shipping and my order arrived in 4 days. The bullets looked pretty good and were quite consistant in weight.

The Gander here carries Meister Bullets and are usually the same price as you can get them online and you don't have to pay shipping. However, their bullet weights are pretty inconsistant. If you are using them for competition and need to chrono, this can be a bit of a problem.

I also use National Bullet. NBC prices are cheaper than I can get locally and since I don't have to pay our obscene 9% sales tax and by using the USPS flat rate shipping option that makes them cheaper. Plus I can seldom find .410" SWC boolits locally.

Hell's Bell's it's hard to get anything other than those silly round flat nose Cowboy boolits anywhere anymore.

How can a round nose be flat nose? :scrutiny: It can be one or the other but not both.
That makes about as much sense as semi-boneless. Either it is or it ain't. :banghead:
