    Where is an inexpensive place to find quality bullets (lead or jacketed)?

    I'm looking for quality product at the lowest price point.

    Not real sure what you're looking for but Midway USA is having a sale on Sierra bullets and maybe others.

    Mountain States Ammunition sells a bullet from HSM (Hunting Shack). It's a copper plated bullet that works great if you keep it below a 1000fps. I use load data for the same weight lead bullet. Real consistent groups and haven't had a malfunction with them yet.

    For jacketed Precision Delta (http://www.precisiondelta.com) seems to have the best prices (by a good margin):

    For lead, Z-Cast Bulletz (http://zcastbulletz.com/) has the best prices I've found, but they have a somewhat smaller selection and it seems to be mostly a 1-man shop so sometimes its a bit harder to get in touch, place orders, etc. Missouri Bullet Company (http://www.missouribullet.com/) costs a little more but has a better selection and a working online order system, which makes things a little easier.

    I have not had the best customer service from Friendswood Bullet Company on two occasions. I live less than 10 miles away, but order my stuff online.

    Berry's has good prices on plated with free shipping over $50. Gonna give Missouri a try this time since I can't find a good price on Speer lead.

    Z Cast just beat my Missouri order by $28. Might have to go with them.

    +1 on ZCast or Missouri Bullet for lead. Powdervalley usually beats most others for plated/FMJ/HP, but sometimes others are cheaper.

    Another option is the Nosler Seconds outlet online store. Don't have the URL handy, but Google for "nosler seconds". I just got a bunch of 185gr JHP from them for a steal, including shipping costs!! Their inventory always changes, of course, so check back from time to time...

    Also, keep an eye on Midway USA's clearance and sales events.

    WOw, looked at the page you referenced and thought it was great pricing. Then I look closer and saw that the page is dated 2005. Knew that pricing was too good to be true. I'll have to contact them or current pricing.

    I love Berry's Bullets. They are reasonably priced on their own website (prices include shipping), but there are a few other places that can be a few $ per thousand cheaper if you do dome digging. Powder valley and TJConvera.com were both mentioned last time this came up. If you get on the Berry's mailing list they will from time to time have decent sales.

    FYI - Berry's bullets are plated.

    Mastercast of IL has good cast target bullets at some very good prices. Penn bullets has very high quality cast bullets at good prices that are among the most accurate I have come across.
    Midway for some jacketed bullets has served what I have needed.

    Zcast was mentioned - took a chance and bought some from him. Ordered them online on a Tuesday afternoon and they were delivered Thursday morning - from AZ to FL in a day and a half....BTW, they shoot great too

    +1 on Precision Delta, but they don't have .380 auto. I just tried RMR for those, we'll see what happens.
