Good morning, THR people!

We at Missouri Bullet Company want to celebrate having placed into service our 4th Magma Engineering Mark 7 Bullet Master by offering a special 5% discount for our friends on THR on all the products we make. Demand has been very high and until now we've had to struggle to keep up with our goal of turning orders out within 48 hours. But the new caster was the magic pill and now we can do this in almost every case.

If you haven't bought from us before, I invite you to visit our website at www.missouribullet.com and look at what we have to offer - currently, we list 38 bullets in a variety of calibers and hardnesses. We offer flat-rate shipping and have "bullet bundles" of up to 3,000 bullets that can ship for $10.85. We have an Action series, a Cowboy series, a Match series, three rifle bullets, and even roundball in .440 and .487.

Anyone wanting to take advantage of our THR Discount Offer just needs to visit the website, place an order, and enter "HighRoad5" into the promo code box at checkout, at which point 5% will be deducted from the order.

Thank you for your time!

Brad

I just ordered from them last week.

Incredibly fast shipping, great product, great prices. They also offer a LEO and military discount.

As well packed as their shipment was, the box arrived with one corner split open. Didn't look as if the Post Office handled it gently.

Nothing lost because they pack internally with separate boxes and everything in a heavy plastic bag, but I would recommend investing a couple of bucks in the optional insurance.

Nothing but highest praise for Missouri Bullet! Great product, great service, great people!!!

I'll 2nd the insurance, though. Those flat-rate boxes aren't made to handle heavy cast lead bullets. Brad does a good job of bagging & boxing, but the USPO isn't known for gentility.

I recently loaded some of these bullets and they were very nice. Hardness was good, no leading, clean(as can be expected with lead). Also, very accurate, easily as much so as bullets I paid more for. Buy with confidence people.

I was looking at the .44s and notice that you make pretty much the same as everyone else. Will you ever tool up for heavier bullets, 300+ grain?

Mainsail:
"I was looking at the .44s and notice that you make pretty much the same as everyone else. Will you ever tool up for heavier bullets, 300+ grain?"

Hmmm. I didn't know that everybody else has .44's in weights of 165, 180, 200, and three different 240's.

This is actually the first request we've had for a 300+ grain .44 bullet. Adding a new bullet to the line costs around $750.00, so it doesn't look very likely that we'll be doing that, based upon this first request, unless of course you want to order 30,000 of them. Then we'll get right on it! :-)

Our next new bullets are going to be .380's and Makarov lightweights, right at the opposite end of the 300 grain .44 spectrum.

Thank you for asking.

How long is this good for?
Reason I ask - doing taxes and expect a bit of a refund, so in a couple weeks I could do it. Our CC just sent notice they're raising the interest rate to 16%. Our reward for not carrying a balance I suppose, so I'm not going to start now.

I would like to see a sample pack, say 20 of each type of bullet. Charge the normal rates but just as an assortment. I have no idea if my 45 will shoot SWC or not. But anyway.

Landric
April 10, 2009, 01:58 PM
He does do a 100 bullet sample pack, but I suppose 100 is too many if your pistol won't feed them.

I have two friends that shoot exclusively SWCs in their 1911s without problems, so your .45 (whatever it may be) would probably feed them with the right tuning of the load (OAL, etc.).

Personally, I like the RNFPs in .45ACP and have a large batch of Missouri's 200 grainers. I got a sample pack of the .45 Colt 250 grain RNFP and loaded some in ACP which I also enjoyed a lot. I might well switch to the 250 grain bullet once I use up my 200 grainers.

I just received my first order from Missouri Bullet Co. yesterday. The box was completely intact with no damage. I just wanted to post this because I have read on other posts that people have received shipments from MBC and their box was ripped open. Some even lost bullets during shipment.

Now if they could do something about the boxes. I still haven't figured out how to open them.

Husker_Fan
April 11, 2009, 02:55 PM
Likely a stupid question, but...

What do they mean exactly by ppc and target velocities for .38 spcl.?

I'm ordering 500ea of the 148 DEWC and 158 SWC, and I want to load them correctly to minimize leading. If they're going to the effort to tune their alloy, I may as well take advantage of it.

MetalMan52
April 13, 2009, 11:35 AM
If you look at the Brinell harnesss number for each type of bullet, it will give you an idea of it's relative hardness. The higher the number, the harder the bullet. A bullet with a Brinell number of 18 is harder than one of 12.
I hope that helps.
Pat

I was interested in putting in an order but I didn't see anything for .45 Colt/.454 Casull other than soft cowboy loads. Am I just missing them?

Husker_Fan
April 13, 2009, 12:56 PM
MetalMan,

I understand the varying hardnesses, and that is what prompted the question. I understand that softer lead is better at lower velocities, but I was hoping for absolute numbers. I want to load the bullets in a velocity range to minimize leading.

Gryffydd
April 13, 2009, 01:07 PM
There are a ton of factors--the precise measurement of your bore and your cylinder throats (if you're using a revolver of course), among other things. A very general way to put it (which has many exceptions) would be:
12 Hardness: <1,000fps
18 Hardness: <1,500fps
18+ with Gas Check: 1,500fps+

There are many factors that can change those numbers +/- several hundred feet per second, but it's an easy rule of thumb. I'm sure there will be some popping up telling how they shoot lead at 1,900 fps with no gas check in their Casull or something, and there's no doubt it can be done, given all other circumstances aligning perfectly.

12 Hardness: <1,000fps
18 Hardness: <1,500fps
18+ with Gas Check: 1,500fps+

I'm new at this..... On there website for 45 ACP Brinell 18 is for Major Power factor and Brinell 12 is for Bullseye or Target velocities. Now to get major for Most ISPC, USPSA, and IDPA all there bullets (185, 200, 230) not need pushed past 1000 fps. So..... Is 18 really nessicary or?

Dark Skies
April 13, 2009, 04:58 PM

Read this page on their site: http://www.missouribullet.com/technical.php

The example they choose is as follows:
Take a typical .45 ACP load, using a 200-grain LSWC bullet 5.0 grains of Bullseye. This load develops 900 FPS and is in common use among IPSC and IDPA gunners. The reloading manual shows that the pressure generated by this load is 20,000 CUPS. So, the formula for optimal bullet hardness is

20,000 / 1279.8 = 15.62

There it is! For this application shooting a 200-grain LSWC at 900 FPS requires that you use a bullet with a BHN of 16 to 18 (round upwards a couple of BHN points for flexibility.)

Now, take a very similar load (from Hodgdon's site)
200 GR. CAST LSWC - HS-6 - 8.4gr - 907fps 16,300 CUP
Which would give you 12.7 instead of 15.62 for a load that is ballistically similar.

Or to really illustrate the point, a similar (200gr @ ~900fps) load in .45 Colt would only generate about 9000CUP.

These are not jacketed by what I have seen. Is it a good idea to shoot these out of a Glock pistol? Any issue's with lead fouling or feed problems?
Thanks

Gryffydd
April 13, 2009, 06:27 PM
Conventional wisdom says not to shoot cast bullets out of guns with polygonal rifling. Anecdotal evidence says it can be OK given the right set of circumstances. I have seen many people on this forum say they shoot cast bullets from their Glocks with no ill effects. I don't own anything with polygonal rifling so I can't speak to that myself.

Do a search on the subject, it has been discussed here more times than I can count.

I don't know how much it will help you, but I load their brinell hardness 12 158 grain .358 bullets in .38 Special in the 850-900fps range (checked with a Chronograph) and I get almost zero leading. One or two passes with a brush, a couple of patches, and the bore is pristine. Easier to clean than when I shoot jacketed bullets for sure.

Thanks, Landric, that is the kind of info I am looking for. I ordered 500 of those 158's and 500 of the softer 148's to try. They should be delivered today or tomorrow.

I will then be in the inverse position of many here in that I will have primers, brass, powder and bullets, but my press and other equipment is still on back order.

Just a quick comment on Missouri Bullets (MB) Service:

I placed a small order with another well know bullet caster just to have an alternate source and to check out the product qualtiy and service. That order was placed nearly 3 weeks ago. They did indicate around a 2 week delivery, and I was OK with that.

Brad at Missouri Bullet has spoiled me. If I orderd from MB on Monday, I had a complete order at my doorstep on Wesdnesday, intact. Whoa !!

I think MB sets the standard on service, price, and quality. Good job Brad.

Everyone seems happy with the shipping from Missouri Bullets, I'd also like to add that they shoot great. I've shot their 200 gr. .45 acp, 180 gr .40 cal, .125 gr 9mm and 158 gr 38 cal, all with excellent results. I have some of their "pin buster" .45 acp and Whitetail 30/30 bullets and am expecting the same great rusults with them as well.

April 18, 2009, 04:28 PM
:confused:well I went out and shot my 200grain RNFP from Missiouri Bullets today.... They would not cycle. I know this is the bullet they recomend for shooting IDPA in an XD45. I seated the bullet at the crimp ring and this gave me an OAL of 1.195 - 1.20" hornaday book says 1.19 min. OAL. I ran 4.9 grains of Unique. Here is what it did. 80% FTL 50% FTE (stovepipe) 100% would not take the gun to slidelock. The loads felt real weak. less recoil than a 9mm factory ammo. Well so back to the drawing board. I wish I could find someone shooting this 200gn. RNFP lead bullet in an XD that could help me with my load. Traveling 45min to find out I screwed up sucks. Can anyone help me get a little closer to the bullseye.

Rodentman
April 18, 2009, 08:26 PM
I shot my first run of the brinell hardness 12 158 grain .358 bullets in .38 sp 4 g Unique and also had virtually no leading. I am very pleased. Ordered another 1,500.

Gewehr98
April 18, 2009, 08:32 PM
But I'm concerned about leading using the 165gr .30-30 bullets listed.

I normally run gas checks in my cast bullet rifle loads, and although 18 Brinell hardness is nice, I'm curious how fast customers have run those through the average Winchester 94/Marlin 336. I suppose at that good a price, I could also just re-size them with Hornady crimp-on gas checks...

I use Missouri Bullet 200 grain RNFP in my .45's (no XDs, but I expect it wouldn't make a difference). I'm using Titegroup and HS-6 in .45ACP (planning on trying some Trail Boss too) and I have had great results. The starting load for Titegroup with a 200 grain cast is 4.8 grains according to their website. I loaded some with 5.0 grains. They functioned fine, but they were running about 177,000 power factor, and I'm looking for closer to 166,000, so I'm going to back off a bit and see.

Let me know where the data you are using is coming from and where it is in the range, here or PM, and I'll try and help. I'm sure its not the bullets in and of themselves.

russ45
April 19, 2009, 08:31 AM
Missouri bullets have the tapered base which speeds up reloading and you don't have to expand the case too much. Very uniform in shape and weight. The one I use is 185-grain 45 ACP Bullseye No. 2. No leading, accurate and good functioning over 3.4-3.6 BE and a 12-LB recoil spring, Model 70 Colt.

schmeky
April 19, 2009, 11:35 AM
bombmaster,

You need to either look for more operating pressure or go to a lighter recoil spring. The problem you have is not bullet related.

Thanks guys. I think I am going to work up the powder to fix the light recoil. Which is causing my faliure to go to slidelock on the final round. I dont have a Chrony so I can only guess. On these rounds there is a crimp ring on the bullet. anyone loading these 200gn RNFP in an XD that can tell me what OAL they are running.

My Son- In- Law has an XD .45 , he runs the 220gr RNFP using 5.2 grs. Unique, OAL 1.219. This has been flawless and one of his favorite loads.
I also use this load in my .45's and never a problem. These are Missouri bullets.:)
Hope this helps.

i ordered my bullets just over a weekago #1 whitetails and noticed my card was charged but i hadnt gotten them

so i made a phone call the lady was very nice in formed me that when io ordered they were out and they had just finished the casting and were sizing them today, that they should be shipped in the next few days
very nice lady and what she told me on the phone matched the faq page to the time line for them being out of bullets

great customer service friendly people and hopefully a great product

The logo is a ripoff of the original Woodstock Concert logo!

MissouriBullet
April 26, 2009, 04:52 PM
It certainly is a rip-off of the Woodstock Peace Dove. Very good observation!

My good friend Chuck Wittig did up that logo to use on t-shirts and signs at Gunstock '94, a gun rights event held in Kansas City at Penn Valley Park, which was sponsored by the Western Missouri Shooters Alliance. We thought the Peace Dove perched on an M16 barrel would send a nice, friendly message. He used PC Paint, which was quite the graphics program at the time.

I remember my favorite sign from that event, which as you recall was the year the "AWB" was signed, and which was the impetus for our rally. The sign said "Clinton Can Kiss my AR15" with a lovely graphic of the rifle.

Since Chuck was the one who got me interested in automated bullet casting with Magma Engineering equipment, I thought it only fair to steal the design from him and use it as our company logo.

Thanks, Chuck! Peace, brother!

OK guys. Thank you all for your advice. I have taken out my new chrony and worked up some data. I ran the 200gn LRNFP bullet that was recommended to me to run IDPA matches. I own both the 4" and 5" XD45 so I ran the bullets through the chrony in both guns. I attached my results for you to look at. I loaded the recommended load of 5.2gn unique and found a FPS average of 647 this load is too light and wasn't reliable,(FTL/FTE). Next weekend Ill be trying to narrow the charge in the 5.7-6.0 range. This might all be moot as my 700x has shipped and will be working that powder up next to a load that will equal the unique final workup.

Landric
April 27, 2009, 12:07 AM
At 647 fps you are only making about a 129,000 and change power factor. You need 165,000 for IDPA "major" (CDP/ESR) or at least 825 fps. If you are shooting the XD in ESP, then 129,000 would be fine if it would cycle the action.

I haven't used Unique in years, but obviously its capible of a lot more velocity than you are getting. Is 5.2 grains the starting load?

bombmaster
April 27, 2009, 12:16 AM
Yea! I attached a PDF but I cant see it. (New Member syndrom Im sure). It has all the loads I ran through the chrony today. I only went up to 5.8gn of unique today which gave me a 785 average in the 4" and 815 average in the 5".

We do have one of those, as we honor those who serve. My philosophy is that active-duty military personnel get too little money and respect for the immense sacrifice they all make. So, we try to do a little bit to let them know that we appreciate them and maybe help them stretch their meager pay a little bit farther when it's time to buy bullets.

Anyone who wants more information about our active-duty military discount program is invited to visit our website and pop the "Contact Us" button and inquire. We will reply via email with details.

Another commercial caster told me that the more he loads up the flat rate boxes the more trashed they are when they arrive.

MissouriBullet
April 30, 2009, 12:49 PM
Agreed on the other caster's observation. This is why we *highly recommend* that customers purchase insurance. I wrote up a rant on the situation here: http://www.missouribullet.com/news.php

My personal thought is that when a parcel is insured, the USPS pays a little bit closer attention to its structural integrity because they are aware that insured parcels are tracked on a per-facility basis and there is thus more accountability down the delivery chain. But that's just my thought.

My first order, and every one since, has arrived without problems. I didn't purchase insurance on my first order, but after reading Brad's rant, I decided it was worth the couple of extra bucks per order to get it. I've purchased it on every order since. Again, no problems so far, but better safe than sorry.

I just got my order of Missouri bullets in yesterday. 1K of 9mm small ball, 500 .38 158SWC, and 500 .45 185 SWC.

5 days shipping. The US Post Office did treat my package pretty "rough" thou, as the box had one side ripped clean off.... however Missouri bullets exellant packaging saved the day. All 4 bullet boxes were still taped up well, intact in the bag and everything was A-OK.

Bullets look very nice, uniform and with a random selection - mic on spec.

I'm very satisfied so far with what I have seen from Missouri Bullet.

BTW I loaded 5 test rounds of the 9mm small ball (over 3.7gr Red Dot) last night to try out tomorrow. My first time using lead in the 9mm and I'm hoping for a nice light plinking load.

I don't have primers, ammo, or powder shipped there, so I am no concerned.

I later found out there was an incident of theft at one of our other locations, and that prompted the email.

I get bullets, brass, dies, and other supplies delivered at work and plan on continuing. I don't think our mailperson could carry the box of bullets to the front step!

Thanks to this thread, and unavailability of .38-caliber cast bullets at my LGS, I ordered some 158gr SWC for .38-velocity. I placed the order Wednesday 11 pm, got a shipment notice at 12:15 pm Thursday and recieved 1000 bullets today! I'm impressed! Perhaps tomorrow morning I will load up a batch and go try them out; the S&W is hungry.

Visual inspection shows they look better than most of what I was getting at the LGS lately, and the scale says they're consistent between 159.2 and 160.5 grs. Just need to set up the press and see how the gun likes them now.

My only gripe: I didn't see the sampler packs BEFORE I placed my order. Otherwise I would have grabbed some .44-caliber bullets to try out.

Just ordered my first batch from MBC last Tuesday and had them waiting for me Friday. I loaded up a couple hundred rounds over the weekend, and they shoot very well.

Only minor issue was that 2 bags of 158gr SWC, one for .38 (Brinell 12) and one for .357. (Brinell 18) broke open during shipping and got mixed together with no way to tell them apart. Placing them in simple boxes rather than bags would've helped.

So another +1 from me, I'll be ordering again in the near future.

MissouriBullet
May 13, 2009, 05:18 PM
Yes, the sample packs are a problem. We can't box them because the sample pack may be part of a 4-box order (half of our orders are that way), which nearly completely fills the USPS carton.

I hate messing with the things but we do offer them so that folks can get their feet wet on a bullet they want to audition. I am sorry the baggies ruptured on you and surprised too, because I tape the holy bejeebers out of them.

Anyhow, the alternative is to drop them completely and I don't want to do that. Hmmm.

Oh, on another topic - we finally received the collator plate and upper tubing assembly for .380's and I am hoping to get a few thousand of the 95-grain .380 bullets sized and photographed for the website tomorrow so we can start offering them.

I received a mystery box from them today with 500 .357 bullets in it. I called to let them know I must have gotten this order by mistake and they told me that I "may" have gotten some bullets that were undersized. They just wanted to make sure I had the right stuff. To my knowledge the original order was fine because I haven't had a chance to get to them yet. I'll be sure to weigh them to make sure but I wanted to let everyone know how great Missouri Bullet Company's customer service is.

MissouriBullet
June 15, 2009, 09:28 PM
Well, you're certainly welcome!

I do not understand the problem other casters seem to be having with getting orders out in a timely manner. We make bullets every day, the 3 of us plus the shipping department, and nearly always can get an order out the same day if it is received by noon CST. This would be because we have the bullets in stock. Now, there may be some who would assume that we have them in stock because we aren't selling many and so have huge piles of bullets lying around. That would be an incorrect perception, as we manufacture and ship over a million bullets a month, which works out to more than 2,000 boxes of 500 bullets. This is in addition to supplying a growing number of gunstores nationwide and all the major gunstores in our area. Like I said, we make bullets all day, typically, 75,000 of them. Not hard to do when you have enough equipment.

Anyhow, to those who wonder how we do it, that's how. We work all the time and have never skimped on buying bullet casting/sizing equipment (4 Magma casters, 5 Magma lubrisizers), keeping spares on hand (motors and other critical items), and lots and lots of moulds that we use to cast the (currently) 42 bullets in our lineup. We buy alloy by the 22 ton truckload on a long-term contracted price so we always have the lead and a forklift to move it with. And when I say we work all the time, I mean we work our a$$es off!

So I guess we're doing something different from the other casters who are quoting 3-4 weeks or more to ship bullets that they ought to be able to get out to their customers in the next day or so. I wish I knew what the problem is. I really do.

Anyhow, it's the end of another long day. If you want some bullets that aren't in stock, order by 0800 tomorrow and they will be made and shipped tomorrow. But you really don't have to do that, because everything is already in stock :-)

Brad

After allot of you asking for my load data spreadsheet I decided to post it here for all of you to enjoy.

Most of the formulas were found easily on the net. I only used these formulas to ease in data collection.

The output cells are non password protected to protect the formulas from getting altered and the spreadsheet not functioning correctly.

Cell B1 & B20 are the weight of gun in Oz. (used for felt recoil)
B2-39 is powder charge in grains (used for felt recoil)
C3-38 is weight of bullet in grains
D3-M38 is input bullet velocity in FPS (calculates an average in column N)
Column O is Power Factor (column n * column c )
Column P is +/- 125000 power factor
Column Q is +/- 165000 power factor
Column R is kinetic foot lbs. at muzzle
Column S is felt recoil in feet per second

We've had the THR discount in place for a while now and have had an excellent response to it. However, over time, the code has leaked out to other fora, with the result that folks who aren't members of The High Road have been taking advantage of it.

And so, as a security measure designed to actually get people to come to the High Road and actually join and participate, I have decided to change the discount code.

It was "HighRoad5" and now it is "THR-Original".

Enter it exactly as you see, the quoted text inside the quotation marks.

Maybe we can pick up a new member or two this way.

Our 12 BHN Cowboy line will accommodate anything a .38 Special handgun can generate.

I'd go with the 158 grain SWC over the round nose. Crisp, clean holes in the paper, vicious tearing of a permanent wound cavity in tissue. The best of both worlds!

I just received my order of 2K .40 S&W 180gr CFP bullets from Missouri Bullet Company. Having purchased cast bullets from S & S Casting previously, I thought a comparison would be in order, so please accept my comments in the constructive frame I intend to offer them:

Shipping

Missouri: +1 for Speed. I ordered my bullets on 12/30 and they arrived this morning (1/2/2010, and a holiday occurred during the shipping period).

S & S: 0 points; a bit slower than Missouri. I ordered 1K 140gr CFP .40 S&W and 1K 180gr CFP same caliber from them on 12/8, they arrived 12/12. No points deducted due to the fact that getting them in 4 days was still pretty quick.

Inside the Box(es)

Missouri: -2 for Arrival Condition. While I understand MBC doesn't have much control over how the USPS treats their boxes once they've left the factory, I think the packaging/protection could use a little improvement. The exterior box looked like it was rolled end-over-end from Missouri to Maine, and one of the internal boxes of bullets had ruptured. There was no additional packing material cushioning the boxes inside the USPS carton, other than a plastic bag. The rupture released a handful of bullets into the surrounding plastic bag, and I could hear them rattling around when I picked the box up at the post office. There was also quite a bit of dust inside a couple of the boxes, which I suspect is dried-out lube that had flaked off (or was rubbed off by the looseness of the bullets inside their 500ct boxes). Some of the bullets have significant gaps in their lube channels. I don't know whether it was the dust or oxidation, but they just weren't as shiny and neat appearing as the S & S bullets.

S & S: +2 for Arrival Condition. They package their bullets in boxes of 500 just as does MBC, but at least for 180gr .40cal the boxes were more appropriately sized for their contents, and additional packing material surrounded the boxes in the USPS flat-rate box. On top of that, heavy foam rubber padding material was inserted into the free space inside each 500ct box to minimize movement of the bullets during shipping. The bullets were bright, shiny, dust-free and uniformly lubed with no gaps in the lube channels.

Selection

Missouri: +1 for a large selection of calibers, although only an adequate selection of bullet types within each caliber. Offers 170gr SWC and 180gr CFP for .40cal S&W. Met my needs, since I was looking for 180gr CFP.

S & S: +1 for additional choices within each caliber (although fewer calibers offered). Offers CFP in 140, 180 and 220 grains, and SWC in 175 grains for .40cal S&W. I'll be going back to S & S for their 140gr CFP bullets.

Price

Missouri: +1 for the Discount and charging only for Shipping (no handling surcharge). With the THR discount, Missouri offers a very attractive price. My shipment of 2K bullets came to a grand total of $134.45. MBC also offers discounts to registered gun clubs.

S & S: -1 for Overall cost. Although their bullets' retail price is within $1.50 of Missouri's for the same quantity, they offer no affinity discount for members of any on-line forum or gun club that I'm aware of. They also assess a handling fee, which is added to the uninsured flat-rate shipping cost. This brought the grand total to $144.55 for the same quantity and type of bullet.

Support

Missouri: +1 for MBC's Technical Details, specifically regarding bullet hardness, available on their web site. I have not yet had the occasion to request additional technical information from them, however, so I feel unqualified to comment on that.

S & S: 0 points. I would've awarded S & S a point for support after my initial inquiry was answered fairly quickly. However, the lack of response on the 2nd inquiry reduces my satisfaction level quite a bit. Finding very little in the way of load data for their 140gr CFP in .40 S&W, I emailed Jim Stinar at S & S to get his recommendations. He responded within 48 hours, suggesting 5gr of WST. A 2nd inquiry requesting the COAL for that bullet and load has gone unanswered for over a week.

Summary

My overall, highly subjective ranking:

+3 for Missouri Bullet Company
+2 for S & S Casting

In the end, though, the most important criteria is how they shoot. I am getting some lead fouling with the S & S bullets; they seem a bit softer than the Missouri Bullets so I'm hopeful that shooting the MBC bullets will reduce the amount of scrubbing I need to do after a shoot.

I'll post an update when I've had a chance to shoot some of the MBC bullets.

Oh yeah? Well, how come you didn't compare our live shop webcams, huh? Huh? Huh?

A nice review. I will quibble with the ding for the shipment being damaged, though, as nothing can survive a determined USPS worker when it comes time to destroy a carton and mush the bullets together so they aren't so shiny anymore. And on selection - we do have 50 bullets, more than most anybody out there. I'd have though another point for that would have been nice. But it's a minor quibble.

I think Jim Stinar runs a leaner operation, and I don't believe he has a shopcam :)

My beef with the damage wasn't so much that USPS tenderized the box, it was that there wasn't a lot of additional support inside the box to keep things from shifting around. The S & S box was very carefully packed, with additional padding inside the individual bullet cartons and surrounding them in the enclosing USPS flat rate box.

The S & S box was pretty beat-up looking when it arrived, too. But the bullets weren't :)

I'd love to check out your shopcam. I don't seem to have the requisite credentials to sign on, though . . . it's prompting me for a user name and password.

The credentials were posted in the original shopcam thread. It's THR/HideyHole

We actually are investigating stronger boxes. We have another 3-4k of our current ones to go through before we re-order.

We only have the one size box, which is the same size LaserCast uses. In fact, the box is cut from the same dies from the same box manufacturer, which is a hundred miles from us in Kansas. So, some bullets fill the box at 500, some fill it at 400, and some fill it at a thousand. So there's a problem with the single-box constraint and managing unfilled bulk within it on the lighter bullets.

But we're working on it. Meanwhile, the square-bottomed 2 mil enclosure bag limits loss, except for when the USPS drives a forklift fork through the box.

They arrived quickly and as promised. I loaded up a few for testing and they worked just fine. I found out my XD has quite the tight chamber and needs a shorter OAL (and reduced charge to go with it), but my Rock River AR-15-9mm just eats them up. The cast bullets keep the price per magazine down from $7 to $3.50. More blasting stuff!!

I'm eyeballing a 1911 right now. I'm sure you'll be shipping some .45 my way soon.

Which bullet are you referring to Vitesse? I recently started loading the 125g "SmallBall" for my XD9 and Hodgdon's load listed a COAL of 1.125". They were not even close to flush with that COAL. I backed off 0.005" until it seemed to chamber easily and fully flush which was around 1.080". I loaded mine to 1.075" for a bit of wiggle room, but I think I'll drop back a tad more to 1.069".

Vitesse304
January 11, 2010, 09:00 PM
I thought you got some of the new 115's.

I've been loading them to 1.125, but they look pretty long. They chamber well in my springfield loaded 1911, but I think it's pretty tight in both my xd's...but I don't want to bring the COAL down too much creating undue pressure.

Based on my first efforts at reloading with MBC bullets, I need to revise my scoring.



Inside the Box(es)

Missouri: -1 for Arrival Condition. While I understand MBC doesn't have much control over how the USPS treats their boxes once they've left the factory, I think the packaging/protection could use a little improvement. The exterior box looked like it was rolled end-over-end from Missouri to Maine, and one of the internal boxes of bullets had ruptured.

Some of the bullets have significant gaps in their lube channels. I don't know whether it was the dust or oxidation, but they just weren't as shiny and neat appearing as the S & S bullets.

They package their bullets in boxes of 500 just as does MBC, but at least for 180gr .40cal the boxes were more appropriately sized for their contents, and additional packing material surrounded the boxes in the USPS flat-rate box. On top of that, heavy foam rubber padding material was inserted into the free space inside each 500ct box to minimize movement of the bullets during shipping. The bullets were bright, shiny, dust-free and uniformly lubed with no gaps in the lube channels.

It turns out that the dullness of the Missouri Bullets is actually caused by a very thin coating of lube. Interestingly, this coating makes them much easier to handle, orient and place the in the shell during the reloading process. With my Hornady LnL AP, I would estimate that my reloading speed improved by as much as 10-15% due to the added traction my fingers get.

So I've added a point to MBC for what at first looked like a deficiency but turned out to be an advantage, and subtracted a point from S&S for an appearance 'feature" that is actually a liability . . . the S&S bullets are somewhat slippery and harder to handle in comparison to MBC's.


Summary

My overall, highly subjective ranking:

+4 for Missouri Bullet Company
+1 for S & S Casting


Hope that makes you happier :D

Question about your cost calculation -

First, I'm glad that you found our bullets easily manipulable for your loading procedure.

But I do have a question about your cost comparison. Looking at the S&S website, I see that their 180 grain .401 FP's are priced at $73.50 per thousand. So, 2,000 of them is $147.00 which, when added to their $13.90 shipping charge, totals to $160.90.

Our pricing for that bullet (the IDP #5) is $32.00 per box of 500. Multiply by 4 boxes, the price comes to $128.00. Subtract the 5% THR discount of $6.40 and our bullet price is $121.60. Add our $10.85 shipping and the total is $132.45 which represents a difference of $28.45, shipping, for 2,000 bullets. That is a saving of over 17%.

Did their pricing go up since you ordered yours from them?

Dodge DeBoulet
January 17, 2010, 06:02 PM
Apparently their pricing has gone up since last month. I compared my cost for 2,000 SnS 180gr CFP purchased 12/6/2009 to my MBC purchase from a couple of weeks ago.

MissouriBullet
January 17, 2010, 06:38 PM
Well, lead as a commodity has continued its steady increase in cost since late summer. Now it's about $.55/lb. higher than what my last 5 truckload contract was for. Fortunately, we're still sitting on over 60 tons of it so we won't have to raise our own prices for a couple of months.

I feel for the casters who are dependent upon the spot market. Two years ago when alloy hit $2.40/lb., nobody could sell bullets profitably; it cost more to make them than what the bullets normally sold for. Companies that were seriously back-ordered on product got jammed really badly because making the bullets to fill those old orders was a huge money loser for them and a lot of them tanked.

Now that you mention it, I have noticed price increases from other casting companies, too. We will be raising ours, but when the move is imminent I will announce it here a few weeks in advance to give folks a chance to beat the increase.

January 17, 2010, 09:20 PM

Or the companies just ignored your orders, or "conveniently" lost them. Usually people who make good bullets are the cheaters who last wayyy longer than their business practices should have allowed. *company names removed*

But your company Bard bucks the whole system. I'm happy to NOT use my THR, V-Day, LE, or promo price discounts when I order. You DESERVE that smidgen of my money, if only to reward your ethics and business practices. I hope to be ordering from your company long after my first tub of unused powder goes bad! [/rant]

125gr LRN. I had to squeeze them down to 1.10 or 1.095. They absolutely will not chamber in my XD above that. They are too long at 1.125 in the XD. They'll do just fine in my AR though. I dropped the power charge to 3.65gr HP-38. My test rounds at that specification came out really dirty and sooty. One even stovepiped (a first in my XD) it seems because there wasn't enough pressure to operate as normal. I took that as a sign of low pressure, and I've upped the powder to 3.85gr (don't ask me why these all end in .05, my scale is goofy). I haven't shot these yet because I'm so busy with school. I'll let you know how it goes when I do.

Just wanted to chime in here- I bought 500 smallball 9mm late last year from MBC. Excellent quality. Arrived in perfect condition.

Just recently I bought from a more local caster- nice folks, OK quality BUT not quite up to MBC. After taxes and shipping, I paid considerably more.

I'm ordering more 9mm and 45acp today- from MBC.

Can't see ever going anywhere else again.

February 11, 2010, 10:18 AM
Vitesse304 & spartywrx, I had to squeeze the 125gr Smallball down to 1.068-1.07" to get them to run reliably in my CZ85. With 5.5gr AA#5, that is a seriously accurate load in that gun. I ordered a box of the 115gr Parabellum Sunday (received yesterday...barely got home to stash the evidence before the wife arrived home fromwork :D) to try next week.

Also picked up a box of the new 180gr .357 Striker. I'm not exactly sure what I'll be using it for, yet, but I'm thinking it looks like a helluva silhouette bullet or for hogs - if I ever get the promised invitation from some folks at church.

With the exception of two boxes of Speer lead bullets I got on sale and a bag of Winchester 9mm FMJs someone gave me, all I have ever loaded is Missouri Bullet. I'm spoiled.

Re. smallball oal: my case gauge told me that 1.125" was too long. Once I'd gone down to 1.065", the gauge said "O.K.", and they worked fine in my XD9.

A question, though. I get a lot of build-up of lube, and a decent amount of lead, in my seating die. I replaced the Lee die with one from Dillon because it's far easier to clean, but the problem persists. I'm pretty sure the cases are belled enough, as I don't see any bullet shaving, and the build-up is deep into the die. Spot checks show a gradual shortening of OAL, so I have to clean out the die after every 100-150 rounds. Any thoughts?

I have read a lot of good things about Missouri Bullet's customer service and Bullets so after swapping a couple emails with Brad I placed my first order just a little while ago.

I just unpacked my Dillon 550B after a 10 year hiatus and started reloading a few weeks ago. Did a little experimenting with some 10 year old bullets 200 LSWC and some newer ones a friend gave me. Honestly I don't remember anything about BHN back then but I had written down I was using 3.9 gr of Bullseye. Brad gave me his recommendation and I am ready to load some up.

I am going to search the forum now to see which powder works best, cleanest and less smoke with Missouri 200gr LSWC.

Welcome back into reloading. I load a lot of .45 ACP (10K+ a year), and I have personally found WW231 hard to beat. There are other great powders as well (I have, and still use Bullseye, for nearly 30 years).

4.8gns of 231 pushing a 200 LSWC Missouri Bullet is a one-hole load @25 yards in an accurized .45. Also one of the cleanest powders with a grease-grooved cast bullet I have tried.

I will have to give 231 a try. A friend gave me some Unique that I tried with some 230 FMJ. I loaded it to 5.9gr and it was pretty accurate. He said he didn't like the Unique with 200 LSWC, so I didn't try it.

I have to say, MB shipped my order a couple hours after it was placed. I am really impressed, hopefully they will be here by Friday so I can load at least 50 to carry to the range on Saturday

Hello.

New here and to reloading.

I bought some .45 200gr SWC from MBC but there were a few without that blue lube, can these still be loaded? What will the difference be?

Within the past month's time, I have place two orders with Missouri Bullet Company and they're fast. The first time it only took two days to get here and the second, three days. And that says a lot when Brad (Owner?) joins the forum to talk with us. Thanks for the great service.

I'll be placing another order soon.

Thanks

My Colt and Me

My Colt and Me, Brad has posted before that he puts a few extra bullets in each box to make up for any non-lubed bullets.

Non-lubed bullets would make good dummy rounds.

But don't use them? I think I may have loaded one or two of these, is this going to be a problem?

No problem at all. I usually take the bullets without lube and load and shoot them as normal anyway. I find usually that the lube is in the bottom of the box, the rough handling by shippers seems to bang them around enough to knock it off a few here and there. I load and shoot them anyway, as its 1 or 2 rounds out of 500. Yeah, those two will probably smear a little lead, but not much. Normal cleaning will take care of it. No need to waste those bullets.

Thanks....Being new, I was afraid something drastic would happen and the thought of pulling 500 rounds was just as chilling.

Without extensive costs, is there a way to add lube to those without?

Thanks

On your next order, purchase the Lewis Lead Remover. It does an awesome job.

There are many products available commercially that can be used to lube lead bullets. Very easy too. Lee makes a good lube that you can use.

I have recently tried both Lee Alox and Rooster Jacket. Both performed well. Rooster Jacket is a little easier to apply.

I was happy with how fast they shipped. I actually loaded 100 rounds of the 200 swc and went to the range this past Saturday. I shot 90 of the rounds without a hitch so I ran the target to the back of the Range which is 25 yards, used my range bag as a rest and cut a 2" group. Not bad for these old eyes and I was impressed with the Kimber Eclipse Target II.

Just stopping by to say thanks to MBC for the code. Just ordered 2K .45's, I'll be shooting them in the state USPSA match in a couple of weeks.

I ordered a bunch of bullets from MBC a couple weeks back (~5500 of various calibers) All three boxes showed up within days well packed as always. I still can't figure out why my mailman hates me.:evil:

Another fast MBC shipment. Received the shipped confirmation email on Wednesday and the shipment arrived this afternoon - All the way to California.

Brad must be tipping the USPS drivers. :D

Keep up the great work!

My mail man loves carrying those priority boxes that look light. I wonder if he has a hernia yet ???

I actually felt bad for my mail lady. Usually all my heavy stuff is sent with UPS and my neighborhood driver just "loves" when he has to stop at my house. I wondered if she had to use a hand cart to get them to my door.

Such is life.

I haven't fired any of my MBC goodies yet, but I hope that will change on Easter Sunday.

I'm new here to the forum but I have a question for MBC, Brad do you ever cast 32ACP bullets in .311 dia, 71 gr?
Looking at your prices and comments from everyone and also how fast the shipping is, I will be making my next order for .9mm and .45acp from the MBC.
Thanks.

We only have the 100 grain in that caliber, frozenover, but could size them to .311 for you. Don't know if that helps but is the best we can do.

Thank you.

You have to use the updated code, which is posted in this thread. We had to change it because other forums were posting the old code to folks who weren't entitled to the discount because they weren't High Roadies.

Thanks for recommending I try lead. My fiance just picked up her first 1911 this last weekend, and we are having trouble finding inexpensive practice ammo...so it's time for me to start teaching her to roll her own!

I also picked up some .40 for myself. Lets see how that works!

I think my mail ladie is angry with Missouri Bullet Co. I ordered 2000 .40 180 grainers on Friday morning and I think I heard her scream in agony from putting the box on my front door step. As always great service.

Bought 1000 .45 230gr this week, it took them two days to deliver after I made the purchase. WOW!!! The only thing was that they didn't take the promo code on the website, it is ok though!!!

Brad, would you be able to give us "High Roadies" a definite cut off date in case we want to "stock up" before the price increase? Thanks in advance ;)

I just love those 18 BHN bullets - no leading in my barrels and I am a happy camper! :D
