    Brad is a member here, and a heck of a good guy. Even in these dire times they are shipping 10x faster than anyone else. When we werent in an Obamanation rush two day turnarounds were the norm for a MoBullet order!

    Give them a shot, you WILL NOT be disappointed!

    + on on this ^ guy. I do not shoot lead anymore, but when I did he was great, even to the hardness he was offering.

    Missouri Bullet is a great company but right now is experiencing a big backlog of orders. If you need some lead bullets now I would recommend these guys.

    Great service and they ship fast. Ordered Monday in 125Gr 9mm and got them today.

    If you don't mind waiting 3-4 weeks then I would then go for Missouri. =)

    ZCast had good results with them. Not as pretty as Missouri bullets but plenty accurate in my 1911.

    Also used Magnus bullets that are made here local. You should be able to find them in Tn.

    Not all orders are taking that long. I ordered on a monday and got my bullets a few days later, two weeks ago.

    Missouri Bullet is worth it.

    I buy from several sources really. For 9mm and 45 Cast it is Quality Cast or Friendswood Bullets (both sell the same bullets by QC) and for jacketed the last batch I bought from Precision Delta. Now my 45 Colt cowboy bullets and 45-70 target stuff I get from Badman Bullets. Hunting rounds for my 45 Colt are Ranch Dog 290 gr bullets as Carolina Bullets cast or Missouri Bullets 300 gr Lee bullet. Hunting rounds for my 45-70 are Missouri for the 405 gr GC HC and 500 gr GS HC but have also bought from Oregon Trail.

    Based on this thread I just ordered 1000 158gr 38 SWC, and 500 124gr 9mm from Missouri Bullet. I also used the Thr-Origional promo code to get 5% off. 3 boxes were the same shipping cost as 1 box...no sure how many boxes fill a flat rate shipping box.

    Great guy to deal with and cheaper than the rest. His bullets will compare to any cast lead bullets out there.

    Missouri is the one to choose, you've chosen well! If they're out of something, ZCast Bulletz is a good place, as is Falcon Bullets.

    I have shot several boxes of SNS bullets. Being from Illinois they are in some of the local gunshops. They seem to use standard alloy and lube that most other casters use. No complaints with them really, except that i did get a box of 148gr SWCs that leaded me up something fierce with the same load I was using with a few other casters bullets. After that I switched to Missouri exclusively.

    I'm not badmouthing them by any means, just saying about a single experience. Again, I shot several boxes of thier bullets without any issues.

    Funny, I can say the same if you turn it around about MB. But to be 100% fair it's more about how they are loaded than the producers of the bullet.;) My guns will favor a different charge for the same type of bullet from 2 different casters.
