I was looking up in the internet for some bullets and found these. They are quite cheap but I would like to obtain some information about their quality.

I like the bullets I bought, which were:

9mm 115gr. Round Nose

9mm 122gr. Flat Point

9mm 125gr. Conical Point

They are pretty much like any other bullets from a quality caster, the vast majority of which use the same Magma Engineering molds, using the same 92% lead, 6% Antimony, 2% tin alloy. I got mine just before the owner passed away some years ago, and in case you were not aware, you have to make sure the prices you see gotten from the internet are current.

The 2005 page is still up, and shows prices from that time which also happened to include shipping:

A similar looking page

directs you to a new site that it seems they run the business from now:

Good luck!

If you are talking about http://www.bulletsdirect.com/ I have gotten bullets from them and his shop is not too far from my house so I can just pick up what I need. Matthew seems like good people and he gave me a tour of his set up and sent me home with some samples to try the last two times i bought from him. The story I got was that they were based in Kansas and moved their set up to Tennessee due to health issues.
