    So I ordered my first bullets from MBC. I received the package earlier this week and just had a chance to open the box. I was extremely impressed by the quality of the packaging.

    I only ordered 500 bullets, so the bullets themselves were in a smaller box than the USPS flat rate small box. However, in order to prevent the bullets from getting bashed around, MBC used two well placed pieces of cardboard to anchor the bullet box in place. They also wrapped the whole assembly in a plastic bag.

    It's frustrating to have a severely battered up box of cast bullets show up at the door. The packaging alone made it clear to me that I have found a great vendor. A+ to you guys at MBC, and I haven't even loaded any rounds yet.

    Ya, MBC knows how to pack bullets,not like Berry's, my order from them was scattered over a 4 county area, I recieved half my bullets, never again.
    I mailed Berry's on how to ship bullets, never did get a reply.
    Floydster screw me once, shame on you, screw me twice, shame on me.

    Sorry to hear about your experience - That's too bad, I do like their bullets.

    When I received my Missouri Bullets, some of the USPS outer boxes were beat up, but the inner MBC boxes wrapped in plastic bags were intact.

    BTW, In case USPS damages your package and there is product loss, Missouri Bullets is self-insured and Brad will take care of you.

    Tallinar, I received my bullets today as well. Same packaging you mentioned. Loaded up 10 rounds for the 44, and we will see how they shoot tomorrow.

    Same experience with MO Bullet. Packaged very nice. I bought 500 of the .38 S&W 145gr lead RN. They shoot excellent and are very accurate from my old Smith & Wesson Pre-Mod 10. Plus, they give a military and LEO discount, how cool is that?

    I did order some Berry's plated, but they were from Graff's. They package things nicely as well.

    Yup, they do a great job with shipping. Grandmasterbullets.com does, as well. It's the little things that make the difference.

    Dardas, as of last year anyway, also had VERY impressive packaging. Tyvek is cheap insurance against escapees and they know how to use it. No affiliation, just a satisfied customer. :D

    Check their website, www.missouribullet.com

    It's basically flat rate plus a shade "extra" that covers self-insurance. If your box bursts open and it arrives sans bullets - or it doesn't arrive at all - Brad takes care of it and within days you have a replacement box on your stoop.

    Wow that sounds like a pretty good deal...

    How are their bullets? Good? Any leading with their bullets at low fps 38 special target loads?

    Stodd, they have many satisfied customers here, me included. It doesn't hurt that they have a discount for THR members either.

    I can't tell you anything about 38 bullets, sorry.

    They have given me good service and a good product. Very fast. I can't speak on the 38 caliber bullets but I'd bet they are fine. Give them a call.

    I shoot the 148gr DEWC(PPC) 10bhn bullets in a 686. Load them seated to the crimp groove with anywhere from 3.0-3.3 gr of AA#2.

    Like the man said, "The devil is in the details." I once received a box of bullets from a vendor (don't remember which one now) but it was a small box that had opened in the large box. They had more dents the a 64 honda. Shortly thereafter I started casting my own again.

    I've shot both their 148gr DEWC and the 158gr SWC with great results. I always thought I would shoot the 158gr more than the DEWC, but my Model 15 Smith loves that 148gr with the starting load of Titegroup or a light charge of Bullseye. My daughter loves that combination.

    The only time I've had leading issues with the 158gr (I've just started using the 148gr) was when I accidentally overcharged the cases and got up in the +P range using AA#5. My gun was a 3" SP101 and by the time I was done shooting, it was slinging bullets all over my target. I unloaded the gun and looked down the bore - it was pretty well smooth, full of lead. It was a combination of a rough bore and pushing the soft lead bullets too fast. I learned to not push 'em that fast with AA#5 and to not use the soft bullet in my SP101.

    They make the same bullet in a 18 BHN for .357 Magnum use. My Ruger GP100 loves that bullet, as well as the 180gr LFN.
