    American Reloading has another 25% discount going for 9mm/380 projectiles. Not everybody likes to deal with pulled bullets since you need to verify/weigh each one of them, but I have ordered 500 of the 124gr Gold Dot bullets for $44.99 less 25% and no shipping = $33.74. They also have some HST's for a little bit more, but I decided to go with the Gold Dots since I can actually purchase them new if I like them.

    I will follow up with some test results once I have received the bullets.

    I've bought a lot of projectiles from American Reloading. They ship quickly. Their descriptions of what you will get are generally very accurate. I've always gotten more bullets than advertised. There's always one or two bullets in the order that is terribly mis-shapen. I think they intentionally throw a couple in so that you know you're getting pulled bullets, but the overage always covers it. On the whole, I'm always impressed at the quality and condition of what I get.

    And yes, even when your order includes only bullets of the same weight, you still need to sort them manually since they may have come from different manufacturers and be visibly different. In my mind, that's what rainy Sunday afternoons are for. And I think it's a small price to pay to get jacketed bullets for (depending on the quantity and the sale) as little as 6 cents each.

    I have been lucky with their bullets so far. I try to stick to the jacketed bullets since plated bullets seems to be undersized. This will be the first time ordering Gold Dots, so I will have to check the diameter and setback to see if they can be used in 357sig after being pulled.

    I've bought pulled bullets from RMR. Never an issue with pulled. I'll have to check out American Reloading next time. Been very happy with RMR though.

    If you go to the site https://americanreloading.com/en/ I see they still show the discount code of 25% "cold25".

    I bought some plated and jacketed bullets from them and has been happy with what I received so far. My experience with plated bullets I have loaded and pulled showed that plated bullets always decrease a bit in diameter, so I try and stay away from buying pulled plated bullets. The jacketed bullets I have received seems good, with just a few of the I couldn't load.

    Thanks!
    Might try to pick up some Gold Dots.
    (I do have 3000 RMR MPRs sitting in my shed, but it sounds like a good deal on them)
    Gold Dots are plated however, so I wounder how they are after being seated and pulled. Price is right.

    Their pictures normally is a good reflection of the actual product and I did not see any pull or crimp marks on them. They are some sort of plated but should hold up to high velocities. All the good bullets are gone now.

    @vaalpens Thanks for the heads up on a great deal! I don't have a 9mm pistol but I do load for 38 spl and $30 shipped for 500 jacketed bullets is too good a deal to pass up. I'm going to see how these load in 38 - should be good for casual plinking rounds.
