Just made an order from Dardas. I thought they gave an LEO discount but must have mixed this up with another site. Who do you go with for high quality cast bullets? I would like it if they gave an LEO discount like free shipping or something like that. I also order in bulk and a 10-12k order is not too hard to put together. Thanks.

Really?

I may be willing to cancel my order. They are showing a 6-8 week wait. Pair that with the laugh I got when I asked about the LEO discount....

Where's the info?

Missouri Bullet Company (http://www.missouribullet.com/)

They were offering a THR forum discount, maybe someone has the discount code as I forgot it.

Also discounts on over 12,000 bullets.

Discounts for Dealers and Quantity Orders
We offer discounts for quantity orders starting at 12,000 bullets. Our generous quantity discounts and immense production capacity make it quick and easy for groups and dealers to stock our wide array of hardness-optimized bullets. We can turn any order around in days and have it stretch-wrapped and banded on one or more pallets, ready for freight pickup for you very quickly.

Absolutely great people to deal with! Also a high quality product!

Don't take this the wrong way, why does a LEO get a discount ? I really am curious, I can certainly understand a volume discount but a LEO is really just a workin man like everybody else and it's a hobby for him to. Some LEOs get paid pretty well, how about a cranky old guy discount.

Like blarby, I cast my own. Not difficult, and aside from saving you boat loads of money, it is a lot of fun. I particularly enjoy creating hollowpoints that most of the online commercial casters don't offer.

Planning on starting to cast soon, but until then I use S&S casting. They're locally available and perform well.

Before I started casting, I bought from Missouri Bullets and was never one time disappointed. Top notch outfit, top notch product.

I'll second Z-Cast Bulletz. They have the best online prices I've found so far, their shipping was quick last fall and the 200gr. bullets shoot fine in my 1911.

Man those look awesome! I have a hard enough time getting to my reloading room to keep my pistol and long range rifle fed, especially since our baby boy arrived in December. Unfortunately, casting is just not an option at this point.

It is definitely time consuming. No doubt about it.
Casting, loading and shooting are really my only hobbies now though. I haven't played golf in a long time. I can't justify spending $50 on greens fees. I'm always like, "Crap, I could have bought 2 pounds of powder, or a bucket of wheel weights with that." :)

Hehehehe beat me too it.

Seriously though, Look into casting your own at some point in time.
Buying cast is about 1/2 to one third the cost of jacketed. But casting your own even buying the lead is at least 1/2 the cost of buying lead bullets.

I do still buy some of my 32 cal stuff. I dont shoot enough of it to justify the mold cost.
These guys have always treated me right.

I've been getting mine from X-treme Bullets in Nevada. I can't say about any discounts, but they have a good product in cast or plated and their price includes shipping. I think they are running about 5/6 weeks behind on orders right now.

Montana Bullet Works.

The only one I've tried so far and no reason to try another.

Dave has given me personal service in discussing sizing issues, etc., so that I can order the correct bullet for my revolvers.

To help me with a recent problem he carefully measured the profile of 5 different bullets for me so I could choose the one that best suited my needs.
Doesn't seem to have a big staff, but takes a personal interest in each customer and their order.

You can get that from MBC too. A member here posted a few weeks ago about MBC custom sizing some 9mm for him, even in this craze we are stuck in.

So far I've received 8,500 bullets from them in the last 12 months. Plan on doing it again within the next 12 months, too. Maybe even round it off to 10k :)

Mine is a local tire dealer that I get a #100 bucket every other month. I gladly give him $40 and a box of the good specialty doughnuts for his crew.

USSR those are fine looking HP's. I do .44 HP's. I also like my soft lead point with harder base boolits. Time consuming but hey, what else am I doing? Learn to cast your own for an enjoyable hobby and effective supplier.

I use Quality Cast or Friendswood Bullets (same bullets) for 9mm and 45 ACP, Badman bullets for 45 Colt and 45-70. These are all for plinking/target or Cowboy action in the case of 45 Colt and 45-70.

Now hunting with 45 Colt and 45-70 is Carolina Bullets for Ranch Dog 45 Colt bullets and Missouri Bullet for 45-70 hunting as well as 45 Colt bullets some times. I've also used True Cast and Laser cast through Oregon Bullets. I've also tried Precision Delta for some 9mm and 45 ACP jacketed stuff.

Mbc ftw

Fast shipping too. At least before the insanity set in.

Although when I actually go somewhere to buy components I can buy locally produced cast bullets. They're just as good as the ones I get from MBC. Wish he would make some .30 cal bullets for tube mags...

Haven't actually started loading yet, but have bought my cast .45acp bullets in prep for them. I use Colorado Cast Bullets... because they are nice guys, and it's at my shooting range, and they always have loads of stock. (enough in stock that they JUST started up their machines for the first time in a while and still have pallets and pallets of bullets) ;)

Dunno if they do discounts for big orders or LEO, but I'd imagine they do.

For the past couple years, I have bought from Missouri Bullet Company and have been pleased with the bullets and service.

So I just bought 1k starline brass and looking to either do cast or buy my bullets. I have 200 lbs of lead waiting to be molded. Its for a 40sw. I have a dillon rl550b. Whats your thoughts? Should I buy the bullets or just get into casting my own? If casting whats a decent setup and bullet type for all around plinking maybe home defence if needed or for that racoon on the hay loft etc. Is for a xd40

I agree 100 percent then some, most even have better benefits than the rest of us. O top of that I have issues with any of them or others in uniform being called heroes across the board. Unless they do something heroic- or over and above the term is way overused and applied where it often has no legitimate reason to be applied,

Plenty of other Americans perform dangerous jobs with long thankless hours away from family etc. I am not a hater but they are no MORE or LESS important than the rest of us ... in general. That is the fact!

I have used mastercast and Penn bullets with good results

But I understand not wanting to do it yourself. You eventually will end up wanting custom molds which aren't cheap. You will want more equipment to speed up the sizing process which isn't cheap. You will want a master caster and if you do take the plunge that means all new mold purchases. And when you find out you can automate it for a few hundred you will want to do that as well. And then there is the shrinking lead supply.

Casting eats up more of my time then reloading. But I thoroughly enjoy it. If you don't have the time then there's nothing wrong with purchasing cast bullets.
