Hey guys,

I'm new to reloading. Just got setup from Christmas gifts. So far I've loaded 150 rounds of 230fmj with 6.0 grains of Unique. I've fired 50 and was happy with the load. I only have 50 unloaded bullets left, and need to order some more. What's the best value out there on bullets for 45 acp. At this point, I'm not loading for comptetion shooting matches, or for self defense. Just plinking at the range. I want to keep my spending limit at around $100. It seems http://www.tjconevera.com/wb45mc230-45-auto.html is a good deal. Thanks in advance for your help. This forum is awesome.

That is a very good price on Winchester bullets.

But be sure and carefully check shipping costs.
A thousand .45 ACP bullets is 35+ pounds shipping weight.

Some of the best bullet deals around rape you on shipping charges!

What's an "MC" bullet? Pic kind of look jacketed w/ open lead base. I'm trying to avoid exposed lead whenever possible! Mainly shoot indoor ranges.

Shipping is free.....good price indeed.

The exposed portion of the bullet is not the problem at indoor ranges. You'll get more lead exposure walking through the dust cloud caused by the primers (some of which have lead in them) igniting the powder in each cartridge, when you walk down to change targets. That's why the NRA recommends putting vent fans just forward and above the shooting line on indoor ranges.

Learned that little fact that their range management course.

Also, you can be exposed if you mine the lead that accumulates at the impact area. Some ranges have auto mining capabilities where you never have to touch the stuff.

I just got 2000 Berry's from TJ Coneveras not long ago on a recommendation from another THR member. Good prices and good service.

I actually just got my order in last week from tjconevera.com, I ordered a thousand .45 as well as other calibers. I put my order in Sunday night, and I recieved my order Wednesday afternoon. As others have said shipping is already included in the price, or "free". I will continue to order from them, because I have yet to find better prices or better service.

That price includes shipping, at least the last bullets I bought from TJ did:) Those are the same Win bullets that come loaded in The White Box. Great price while they last, a flyer he mailed out said when the Winchester bullets are gone, he's done with them:(

Thanks for the tip. I was going to do business with Precision Delta Bullets. They have great prices as well. I think they require a 2000 bullet order. I might have misunderstood their website. Both sites look really good. Thanks.

Thanks for the input guys. I'm going to go ahead and put in an order with TJConevera. I just can't find a better price out there for 230 grain fmj.

It saves a LOT to shoot cast lead instead of FMJ. Something to consider.

My .45 is an HK. I have to have the hard ball.

I use Montana Gold 200 gr. in my .45. Love 'em. Extremely accurate. If you can't use cast, Montana Gold is hard to beat.

Thanks, guys, for all of the links. I bought bullets on-line from Midway a few weeks ago when they had special prices on blemished bullets. I've since bought some more from them, but am pretty sure I have been paying too much, both in price and shipping. The links you have provided will be a great help.

MIdway rapes you on the shippng and handling charges apparently the postoffice around them has never heard of the flat rate box, 2200 .45 bullets 70lbs for $8.95, instead they use UPS and charge you $28 for shipping the same quantity.

Yep. They used to be reasonable, but they have lost some sales here lately as I have shopped around. Midway is no longer automatic for me.

Grafs has a flat shipping rate around 4 bucks, provided it doesn't weigh more than 150 lbs.

Some of their prices aren't as good as Midway's, but they aren't that much higher.

Midway is insane, I was looking at a $100 supplies order and they added $40 for a hazardous material fee due to 2 bottles of powder!

Are they BIG bottles? I think there's a limit to how much can go in one shipment, hence the two $20 charges possibly?

I shoot lead in my Glock 21 with polygonal rifling with no trouble. You just have to clean it every now and then. If you use a hard-cast lead alloy leading is minimal at worst if you keep your velocities down.. my 230-grain running at 10% over book max just starts to leave a little lead by the chamber. Running at book max load there is none.

I just got some 9mm from John Conevera today too. Got the confirmation email the 30th, the same date on the invoice.

Big +1 for him.

Problem is he won't accept debit cards, just credit cards. I refuse to keep a credit card.

I bet they'll take a check if you drop one in the mail to them with your order.

I've often wondered how people can tell if you just use your debit card as a credit card. Maybe some giveaway number or something.

Just got my first batch of bullets from these guys. I felt sorry for the mail lady as she struggled to bring the box to my door. She said "What's IN this box?" and I said "probably lead". She gave me a strange look and drove away.

I had no less than two mail carriers stop me and say my package was damaged and was reported to the Post Master before delivery.... as they hand over one of several big sealed box of loose brass I've bought online. :D

My mailman is going to be toting 140 lbs of bullets in two flat raters this week as well.

Two deliveries ago my old mail lady left me a card to pick them up at the post office, I dont blame her 280 lbs 5000 200 lswc, and 5000 158 lswc is too heavy for her to carry.

When I arrivd at the post office they said what do your boxes look like??

I said they are the small very very heavy flat rate boxes, they knew exactly what I was talking about because they had been speculating all morning, Coins?
Valuable metal ingots?
Dies for a stamping machine??

I told them it was scrap lead for casting fishing weights.

Thanks alot Burrito. Looking at this thread just cost me $104.00 Washingtons! :scrutiny:

No actually thanks I got a few thousand Rainer 45 acp 130 RN's on hand but at $104.00 I ordered a 1,000 Winchesters. They are about $40 bucks cheaper than Cabela's and no shipping. A few years ago I'd have told someone to put me in the rubber room if I paid $104 for just bullets. It's like gas, we get all excited when we can get it for $2.99 or less.
