    Ok I'm looking for a couple of different places to purchase these bullets as cheap as possible. any suggestions. Midway does good on the 2000rnd lots of Rainier but don't do Berry's or x-treme I found this site for berry's www.tjconevera.com anybody have cheaper prices would be great. This could help a lot of people out. Something to look at before posting a response. If somebody else has a site posted check to see if you the site that you are going to recommend beats that price.

    If we can get a couple of good places then we could all save. I will look around and check out as many places as I know and try to update the list when more are added. So my first site would be.

    www.tjconevera.com for Berry's (price includes frieght)
    www.midwayusa.com for Rainier (free frieght on a couple bulks)

    If you find one cheaper then Take this one of your new list and add yours. and add others as well. mostly looking for 500-3000rnd lots min.

    This just came up a week or two ago on this forum. I just saved all the sites on a spreadsheet for later use instead of the thread. Don't have the list available though.

    The prices are very "dynamic" now. I constantly check 5 or 7 places for the best price. As you know, shipping is the wildcard when buying bullets. I don't usually buy from Cabellas but recently they had reduced shipping rates. I doubt they made much from me shipping .44 & .45! 1,000 each of those buggers is heavy.

    Plus, when buying from Berry's, you also pay a lead surcharge which spikes the price considerably.

    I have a new gun coming and was going to try the plated bullets I have used the X-treme bullet under a couple of different names. Mostley use laser cast but am down to my last 1000 so am getting ready to buy another bulk. Something I was thinking about was a bulk buy. From Laser cast and if somebody wanted in I would ship for cost but I'm not sure I want to go this route yet. I haven't been into Laser cast this year or talked to anybody there about the price increase, but I know that I can get them cheaper than I could buy them even with frr shipping. I think I wnat to try the plated before I go this route.

    X-treme sells only direct from their website, IIRC. At least I've never heard of Red going through any other mail order site.

    As far as I'm concerned, X-treme is the best of the plated bullets, their copper plate is the thickest, and they're all double struck.

    I like the X-Treme bullets too, but I am unaware of anywhere to purchase them besides direct from them.
