Where can I get .358" sized 9mm LRN?

    I'm almost out of my last order of MBC "smallball" which were mistakenly sized .358-.359" and which are very accurate out of my .357" barreled P226 and 92FS. I've tried the standard smallball .356" and I get leading.

    I don't expect MBC to cater to me and custom size some (although I contacted them several months ago and they said they could, and would get back to me), particularly during the current chaos.

    Does anyone know of an outfit that offers different diameters of common bullets, on an "on the shelf" basis?

    I don't really want to switch bullets because I have a really accurate and reliable load worked up, but I guess I'll take what I can get. :cool:

    I'd give MBC a chance. They've always done right by me!!

    Most outfits will size them to order, no? Pretty sure you only need ask. I know Zcastbulletz.com will size them .358"

    Dardas will too, they have diameter select options.

    believe me, I'm an MBC fan. But I can't wait months for these. I did give them a chance, he said he'd get back to me, and then I'm sure got overwhelmed/busy. I feel guilty bothering them for a custom run during the current crisis.

    Which is why I asked for alternatives.

    Yup $20.00/100 Yikes, that's expensive.
    I wouldn't pay that for jacketed bullets, much less lead.
    Although they do appear to be gas checked, but still...

    I'd call MBC & ask, if they can't, they'll say so.

    No need to feel guilty.

    That is why I cast my Own. I have 3 different molds for the 9 mm a round nose, round nose flat point and a hollow point. My 9 mm likes them sized at 358 also.
