I have used thousands of these bullets from X-treme and I like the fact of the crimp area having the serrations.

Just a heads up that they have a site wide sale @ 10% off with FREE shipping! Not a bad time to stock up.

They make good bullets, but it takes them too long to ship your order. I order 1000 bullets for the first time and the order sat in processing for 7 or 8 days. In the mean time I was getting daily promotional emails but not a single email about my order.I told them to stop sending me emails. I finally reached out to them to see why my order had not shipped. A day later I got a typical BS response and then they ship the order. I find this unacceptable.

Yup... I agree. They show the items I want in stock but takes 3+ weeks to hit my doorstep.

If you like the bullets and the price is right then order before you run out to compensate for the possibility of a slow shipment.

Or complain about slow delivery and pay more, it's the beauty of the free market.

In this day and age, we want everything fast, guess that includes bullets. I keep a predetermined amount of each caliber on hand and when I use a box or get close I watch the ads. They generally run specials at same times of the year. Somtimes good deals/sales are not conducive to fast shipping. I do agree a simple communication would be helpful

My very first order of bullets was from Xtreme. I ordered 500 357 new cases and 500 RNFP bullets. I was happy to get the order in about 10 days and I considered the price on both to be very competitive. My subsequent order of 500 40cal TCFP showed up in about 6 days. I can live with that. It's my responsibility to manage my inventory.

I went a little crazy with Xtreme's Christmas sale so probably won't order again till their 4th of July sale.
I have noticed when they have one of these sales if you order Friday it processes pretty quick. Saturday takes a little longer and by Sunday it takes much longer. Doesn't bother me. With these sales I'm getting a very good bullet at a very good price delivered to my door. So it takes a little while.

I no longer order from Xtreme Bullets.

Besides taking a few weeks for orders that are in stock to arrive I've received .41 caliber LSWC bullets mixed in with the 44 caliber LSWC bullets I ordered.

I like the bullets and certainly their packaging, but I can attest that they have their issues with execution. I ordered lead SWC and received plated SWC, not marked as such. They did what you would expect and more to make it right, but they can't keep doing things like that and consider it status quo. I kept the plated .358 but was forced to adjust my crimp setting slightly for .357 Magnum.

I must say, I never expected same-day shipping and try to plan ahead to avoid being too concerned about that. My orders were shipped in a timely manner. They also were shipped economy, not express.

I ordered 1000 45 cal. Extreme Bullets and they sent me 2000 45 cal. bullets. I called them up and reminded them of what was sent. I told them to charge my card accordingly. Sometimes mistakes are made.

I imagine their volume is at a pretty high level as is for Berry's both having a good quality plated bullet. My experiences have always been positive or I wouldn't have given them the exposure here

Their shipping is always just $5! I don't expect them to arrive in less than 10 days but they always have. I imagine one could specify a faster shipping method and pay more, but I would rather take a few more days and save a few more dollars towards the next ones.

Perhaps they will see from some of the comments that there is some room to improve overall in accuracy and shipping. Their bullets and plating on my 38's, 9's, 44's, 45 Colts and 45 acp's have always looked good and held up well.

I have been buying from Extreme for about 4 years never any problems with their products. I have used about 5 or 6 thousand of different calibers.
the shipping may be a little slow but consider the normal charge 5.00 for in my case about 17 lbs Via UPS . I always order when I am getting close on my supply and get them when I still have some left, so time is not of any importance

I once ordered 200gr .44's and they sent me 200gr 40's. they sent me the 2x the .44's at no additional charge and did not want the 40's back. I was happy to say the least.

Doesn't look like a lucrative deal to me: I was looking at 180 gr 40s- comes down to $114 shipped, Cabela's has Berrys's for $110 + $5 shipping. I know for Cabela's it'll take no more than couple days to ship and I'll get my order in less than a week.
