    I've been shooting Bullseye competition with 200 grain SWC that I bought from a friend awhile back.

    My supply is starting to dwindle, so I figured it's time to order some new bullets. I'd like to switch to a 185 gr. SWC.

    Who makes these bullets for a reasonable price?

    GOOOOuuuuDDDD Question!

    Sources of good Bullseye bullets are tough to find. I'll be pouring some with a friend in a couple weeks I hope. Mine... Aren't good enough. I intend on tapping him for all the information about pouring good slowfire bullets I can get. We'll be pouring H&G68 and H&G78's.

    There is a local guy (to me) who is well known on the Bullseye-L lists. Neil Kravitz, that many buy from.

    He has a web site nsksales.com that you might want to check out or shoot him an email.

    If I am not casting my own, I use many thousands made by Mike Symbala of Mastercast bullets of Enon Valley PA

    http://www.mastercast.net/cast_bullets.htm

    He runs a very good operation, and his price to quality ratio is outstanding. Been using them since 1991 and have never had an issue.

    NSK http://www.nsksales.com/ You can either buy bullets from him or reloaded match grade bullseye ammo. Neil is a well known and respected Bullsye shooter.

    Precision Delta Bullets http://www.precisiondelta.com . Their 185 LHP SWC bullets are very accurate, but the lube they use is pretty messy. It's a powdery lube that covers the entire bullet

    Penn Bullets http://www.pennbullets.com/. I had nice accuracy with their 180 GR SWC.

    I've shot a lot of "Rodger's Better Bullets" from King Shooters Supply in King of Prussia PA (could be listed as Valley Forge) very nice and little to no leading

    We used the 200 gr JFP.

    They had, though not listed, a 185gr SWC we also purchased from them.

    Great folks, great service.

    If your close to any of the places mentioned then make a road trip and go visit. You might find that FTF you get better deals and no shipping. I go into Oregon Trail Bullets (Laser Cast) and have gotten real good deals.

    Any chance of casting your own? You can get into casting relatively inexpensively and you can control your own end product. It takes a little time, but is well worth the outcome. Just a thought.

    good shooting

    Zero Bullets has a swaged bullet that's supposed to be as good as the now out-of-business Star bullets.

    Another vote for Roger's Better Bullets. They have a quality product at a fair price. They are good people to deal with too.

    Too bad he doesn't have photos of his bullets instead of what he has on the site because the photo would show the quality. I shoot them a lot and they are every much as good as Oregon Trial's Laser Cast bullets without the excessive price.

    Here ya go Dan. Magnus bullets
    I used to pick up Magnus bullets at gun shows in Montgomery. They shot well, although I was shooting their 225 TrFP's in .45. I also shot their 240 SWC in the .44 Spl and Mag. Good bullets. I do not know about Bullseye good, but good.

    They're now "telephone orders only" on cast bullets for some reason, but the product is pretty good. The batch I got last week as a walk-in was $72/900.

    Decent price, but I'm getting more and more serious about tooling up to cast my own.

    I use KEAD HARDCAST bullets out of Texas. They are available for $51/thousand in your desired 185 SWC lead at:

    http://www.keadbullets.com/45_ACP.htm

    I am very impressed with their products, and they will fit 2000 bullets in one flat-rate shipping box of $11.

    So, 2000 185 SWCs will be $113 shipped.

    Hope that helps.

    They also have availability of all common pistol bullets. They will ship 3000 9mm in one box for same flat rate.
