Default ACME BULLET CO.

Has anyone here tried ACME bullets? I ordered some 45 acp. 200 gr. SWC. and some brass from them and received them today. The bullets look great and come in a really nice wooden box. I loaded up some today with 5.4 grs. of bullseye. I'll let you know how they shoot. By the way they cost $55 per 500.

They never worked out well for the coyote.

Beat me to it...I was going to ask if it was owned by the Road Runner. Beep-Beep.

Seriously, the price seems okay and if they load and shoot, you did fine.

No matter how hot you load them, the Road Runner's always faster... Besides, I'd be afraid of 180 degree ricochets, too!

Seriously, they shoot really well. If I can hold to 2 1/2" rested groups at 25 yards like I did today with the rest of them, I am happy. And no leading!

Good grief, no wonder there's so much confusion on this forum, it's "meep meep", not "beep beep"

I'm glad they worked out well for you. I'd suggest you be prepared for more Roadrunner/Wile E. Coyote gags though.

My turn!

Sometimes we're so helpful. If we miss the mark there, we go for the laugh...

Aside from all the jokes - who sells it online? Seems it might be worth checking out.

Limiting magazine capacities is about as effective as limiting the size of beer bottles.
