    OK, I know ammo is low but bullets too??

    Anyway, I usually order for rmrbullets and even they are low. I have googled other websites and they are as low as ammo. Can THR please share with me where else I can order handguns bullets - 9mm, .40 and .45 cals. Thanks.

    Work up a good list of bookmarks, check them all a couple times a day. 'Like' them on facebook, twitter, whatever, many of them post updates and give heads up on incoming shipments that way.

    Everyone is in the same boat, if you really need stuff you will have to keep on it these days(get a couple friends to help you so someone can check more often when the others are working/sleeping and snag a group buy). Things come in and go out of stock in minutes, sometimes, depending what it is.

    Bookmarks is the best thing. Or use the Notify Me links on websites.

    Xfire,

    I am only looking for handgun bullets.

    THR:

    Have you have any experience with these bullets http://store.midatlanticbullets.com/
    They don't seem to have a backlog or orders. And they look like pure lead bullets. I heard pure lead bullets can really dirty a barrel.

    Place your order and wait in line. Welcome to the wonderful world of hoarding. Maybe Chicken Little was right.

    If you're looking for lead, Missouri Bullets has a 2-3 week wait.

    This place gets my vote.

    He's always been fast to deliver. Don't know about backlog now, but he got me 5000 (mix of 9mm,38,44 and 45) together and ready with 3 days notice second week of January.

    i just recieved confirmation of an order from Precision Delta, 1K 9mm, 1K 165gr .40 and 1k 230gr 45ACP delivery is for tomorrow. I ordered this back on 1/4. I thought the wait would be longer. It was a pleasant suprise..

    Powder Valley has Zero brand 38 Super 125gr FMJs in stock as of right now, your choice of 500 for $57 or 1000 for $106. Load those up using 124 or 125gr load data and you are good to go. Thank marketing that lots of people don't realize those are 9mm bullets. They also have several choices of 40 and 45 bullets in stock.

    Grafs also has 230gr FMJs available right now as well.

    What I am not understanding is why are you asking? RMR has an economic option in all three calibers you are looking for.

    This is Jake from RMRbullets. You may want to check the website again today. I just put a TON more stuff back up on the website. Sorry, no .224 stuff but there is plenty of other things. Also, please don't blame me for the small price increases. Those are a combination of my supplier's new year pricing plus the bullet craze. If prices go back down after this thing blows over, you can bet that mine will go right back down as well.

    BP Hunter,

    You really need to consider casting your own. Easy to do and never a shortage!
