    Why pay more for their bullets when you can purchase from a member of this board? Missouri Bullets is a great company that will actually ship your order within 24 hours. No waiting weeks on end from them. Prices are better than your link also

    Every one of those CB bullets is a bevel based bullet, well almost every one. Bevel based bullets are never as accurate as a plain base bullet, but they ARE much easier to cast. Another thing, all but one has only one lube groove! I've never seen a 405 grain 45/70 bullet with ONLY ONE LUBE GROOVE!

    I'd certainly pass on those bullets, for the previously stated reasons. Oh, the price is outrageous also!:mad:

    +2 Missouri Bullet

    125gr .38 Special Cowboy #2 bullets are $52/1000 from Missouri Bullet
    125gr .38 Special " are $61/1000 from CB Bullets

    This is before the 5% discount from Missouri Bullet for "High Road" members. The Missouri Bullets are 15% less expensive. I'm sure MB will ship much faster too.

    Cheaper, faster shipping. Sounds like a no brainer to me. :)

    Cb bullets includes shipping in thiers prices. If you figure that in they are a bit lower.

    FWIW, bevel-base bullets are as easy (or hard) to cast as flat-base bullets. Bevel-base bullets are easy to insert into the case mouth, however, which is why most of our customers prefer them. We do have a few flat-base ones, based upon customer requests, and they sell like refrigerators to the Inuits.

    Everybody has their preferences, I understand. But one thing I have never been shown is that flat-base bullets are superior in any way to bevel-base bullets in terms of accuracy.

    Just my two cents.
