    I received my latest order from MB and once again the gorillas from USPS tore up the shipping box. So much so 1 of the MB boxes inside was damaged and had spilled.

    If I lost any of the bullets it was just a few. I contacted MB and Brad offered to replace them. I told him no thanks. Just wanted to let them know USPS had tortured another of their boxes.

    That happened on one of my last two shipments a month ago. Brad will always replace an entire box when that happens, but I told him the same thing. I may have lost 100 or so bullets, not enough for me to want him to ship me a whole box and pay shipping costs and whatnot. I value thier service as much as they value my business, it wasnt thier fault, and it wasnt a big loss. No big deal.

    As soon as MBC gets the 150 gr RNSW for my 40 S&W, I will buy all my bullets there. For right now I just get down to a 1000 and send an order in. with MBC I can finish loading up my 45 and 41 mag, order and the new bullets will be here before I can shoot them up.

    Huge fan of MBC here

    When I ordered I was notified of a 4 week delay, so no problem. I ordered some 38 special wad cutters. I buy these locally too, so I've always got a decent stash. I also ordered some of the 124gr 'small ball' 9mm, which I'm pretty excited about. I normally load plated or jacketed 9mm, so this should be a fun departure. I'm thinking of working up as accurate a load as I can with these small ball bullets and promo powder for the cheapest 9mm target loads on earth.

    I've ordered a lot of bullets from MBC and they are the only ones that AREN'T smashed when they get here. Never even a dent in a box. Now, when I get orders from another place (jacketed) the boxes look like they've been run over a couple of times.

    Didn't see anyone mention Oregon Trail Bullets. I ordered 2000 recently on the advice of a fellow reloader. 500-9mm, 500-357, 1000-45acp. Thoroughly satisfied, shipped usps flatrate within one week of order placement. Loaded 9mm so far, they are shooting well.
    Any reason no one else mentioning them?

    I dont think they make a bad product, not at all, but they dont fit the bill of what I need. For example, 200gr 45 bullets from Missouri Bullet run about 42 bucks for 500. The same quantity is 69.75 from OT. Also, I think that they cast bullets too hard. The alloy used is entirely too hard for soft 38 loads, for example.

    Now, its all a matter of preference, some will love thier product, some wont. I dont see the advantage to paying the extra money to buy it.

    I use the OT Lasercast for soft shooting loads in my 30-30's as they are so hard I do not need a gas check for them to be accurate. MB has the best handgun bullets on the planet IMHO and the price is easy on the wallet as well.:D
