    I was going to purchase some 9mm bulllets tonight from Roze and see they sell 124 and 125gr bullets. Why have 2 types so close in weight? Is one prefered over the other?

    Maybe one is for 357 sig? Possibly bearing surface difference for the bottleneck case?

    In 9mm there are three styles of 125gr.... HP, SP and FP.
    There is only one style of 124gr. which is FMJ.
    All have a .355 diameter.
    Generally, the best accuracy comes from HP's.

    Edit.
    BTW, my last order from Zero/Roze took 3 months and 4 days to receive. And they were 9mm bullets.

    I hope I get them a lot sooner than that. My dies will be here Tue, brass should be here by the end of next week. I hopefully will have the gun by wed. I guess I should have planned a little further ahead.

    If you want jacketed bullets faster, try Montana Gold. They generally ship the next day or two. Not sure about the price vs. Roze.

    I've had 125 JHPs on order since last year. Competitors like this round.

    Zero 124 FMJs are available, and they shoot okay.

    Montana Gold has 124 JHP/CMJ bullets now. I recently got the JHPs inside of a week. I like MG bullets, but they tend to take a little more powder.

    Precision Delta (cheapest) 124 FMJs are available now. I recieved them in about a week recently.

    If you don't mind using lead, put in an order with Missouri Bullets this weekend and you will probably have the bullets before the brass arrives.

    Check out Rocky Mountain Reloading ( http://www.rmrbullets.com/ ) - Jacob lists 500 115 or 124 gr JHPs for $55 & $57 respectively, shipping included. He also sells plated bullets that I have had excellent results with (45 acp, $73/thousand - haven't used the 9mm yet).

    I recently purchased from him and I can recommend his service and bullets 100%. He had them from Idaho to my door in Illinois in three days. Great quality bullets, and they shot well too. I loaded some of his 125gr JHP in starline 357 cases with Alliant 2400. I worked the load up through a 4 grain range and all of the loads shot accurately, with a wide range of evenly matched loads in accuracy. I think alot of it goes to the bullet quality. I have not expansion tested them, and I dont expect them to perform quite as well as top dollar name brand, but the accuracy is certainly there, and to me that matters more than expansion.

    Also, anytime I can support the business venture of a High Road member, I consider it well worth my time.

    Funny...I have around 1,000 bullets in 124 grain HOLLOW POINTS. Otto...Where did you dig that up.

    The manufacturer is the one who decides whether they will be 124 grain or 125 grain. Whether they will be hollow point or full metal jacket. Not the configuration of the bullet.

    I have both 124 grain (Rainier) and 125 grain (Hornady) hollow points in my loading bench (I don't load or shoot FMJ)...

    I believe Otto is referring specifically about Zero bullets. I have a few thousand Zero HP's and FP's that are all 125 grain. I don't have any of their FMJ's so I'm not sure what they are.
