    Has anyone here ever used these guys or heard of them? I'm liking their prices and the selection is excellent on their .38 cast bullets, but I was hoping to get some info on them before I put in an order.

    Hmmmm?

    200 grain SWC .45 bullets = $40.70 + $12.95 shipping.

    Missouri Bullet sells them for $36.00 + $13.00 shipping.

    We know he sells great bullets with real fast service.
    Besides, he is one of the good old boys here on THR Reloading forum.
    Give him your business.

    Thanks RC. I certainly wouldn't hesitate to order from MB as he is highly recommended on here. The reason I am interested in this Mid Atlantic Bullet company is these two specific bullet styles

    http://store.midatlanticbullets.com/38caliber105grainflatpoint-100countmatchgrade-1-7-1.aspx

    The first I want for a target round, the second I'm hoping to make up some general hunting/defense loads.

    I like the lower priced 250ct order option, as my reloading needs are very small and my budget is much smaller than most. The lower count cheaper order makes a lot of sense.

    For hunting/defense you would do better with a Keith SWC bullet design.

    A TCFP is not going to do much more damage then a RN, and will be deflected off bone much worse then a full caliber SWC.

    The Keith SWC is known for drilling a full caliber hole through anything that gets in it's way and continuing one out the other side of the hide.

    I consider the TCFP a necessary evel in semi-autos that won't feed SWC.

    Just FWIW, we do have those same bullets. The first is our Cowboy #16 and the second one is our 9mm Subsonic (which we can size to .358, same as the one you see at MidAtlantic). Magma Engineering doesn't actually make a .38 mould in that configuration so when you see that bullet shape and weight for the ".38" you're actually seeing an oversized 9mm.

    Anyhow, we'd be happy to make the Cowboy #16 in a harder alloy if you wanted higher pressure, and contrariwise for the 9mm (.38) Subsonic, depending upon your needs.

    I will speak up for my experience with Missouri Cast Bullets.

    I have shot the "Keith" LSWC from them out of my .44 Magnum with up to 20.5 grains of 2400, and I have not had any type of leading issue from them. I think there bullets are great, and I also shoot them with 7.0 grains of Unique without leading, and great accuracy and practice/fun shooting.

    I have not worked up a load that I will use for hunting that pleases me in the accuracy department, but I think I might have resolved that issue by changing the grips on my revolver. Replaced the small SA grip with a Hogue Monogrip.
    If they offer you the same bullet design that you are looking at buying, you should look into them.

    Missouri Bullets are a good buy. IMO.

    This thread reads like a advertisement for Missouri Bullets.

    I do have additional info if anyone wants to hear it about MidatlanticBullets.com.

    Midatlantic bullets has been around for quite some time and has spent most of their time supplying custom bullets for competitions. I am not surprised that this well kept secret has escaped many.
    I saw that they put up a web site several months ago to provide pistol and cowboy bullets. They specialize in PISTOL BULLETS.
    Prices are competitive, but no the cheapest out there. They are quick on delivery.
    Folks that run it have even provided me with hints on accuracy loads for 10MM 180GN FP. Seem VERY competent.

    I have purchased from them three times since they started that web site.
    I purchased 2000 38 125gn FP, these were especially nice bullets and very closely matched on weight.
    I followed this by a purchase of 2000 10MM 155gn SWC and then again with my most recent order for 2000 45 cal RN 230gn.

    Midatlantic makes great bullets, well packaged and quick delivered.
    =================================================

    I like Missouri Bullets and order from them too!

    Supporting a company and its products is not an advertisement.

    The reason this sounds like a MBC add is because of all the extremely happy customers they have. Great bullets, great prices, great customer service, large selection, and very fast shipping! Why bother to buy elsewhere?

    That is what happens when a company does a great job at a great price. Folks just advertise for them.

    Your first post sounds like an advertisement for Mid Atlantic Bullets. I assume for the same reason.

    I have no doubt that Mid Atlantic Bullets has a good product and good service, as you posted. Perhaps they too can win over some enthusiastic customers here.

    The good ol' "Word of mouth" ... speaks volumes.

    Believe me, THR posters are not shy about speaking their mind and correcting misinformation (speaking from experience - see rcmodel :D). If Missouri Bullets were bad, you will undoubtedly see negative posts about MBC all over THR.

    Absolutely! THR is a public forum where reloaders and shooters with interest/passion for firearms and shooting/reloading exchange personal experience and share critical/pertinent information. On a daily basis, there are new firearms and products that are being released and we (consumers) need timely and first-hand review of these goods (good and bad).

    As to Mid Atlantic Bullets, if THR members have any experience with them (good/bad), you'll see them here.

    10mmreloader, since this is your first post, some THR members may think that your account may have been created just to post your comment. Consumers are generally "gun shy" about being burnt by bad product/company and prefer to buy products that have been proven/tested/endorsed by many others they respect and recognize.

    If enough of respectable THR posters (THR readers/posters know who they are) endorse a particular product/company, it says a lot about the product/company.
