I get my bullets from out of my molds. There is never a shortage of what I want.

These guys show stock on their coated bullets. I've used some in the past and thought they were quite consistent. They have some kind of notice about USPS taking forever to ship, but at least they seem to have product.

Casting is a good option if you can find lead. If you have to buy it, it's as much as buying already cast bullets.

Now, about those primers ...

I ordered two different orders of 1000 124 gr. 9mm from Dillon. It took about 30 days per order. Then I was cleaning up a box from the move 5 years ago and found several thousand cast bullets I made to sell in the mid 90's. For 45's and 38's I've been using patriot bullets/patriot casting in Columbus, Ohio. (I Bought about 25k 200gr RNFP 45 and 4k 200 RNFP 44-40 several years ago) but I talked to Mike, 2 weeks ago, he is having no problems keeping up with orders.

People always like to "Borrow" but never return to my stash, so I just give them Patriot's name now!

I always had great service from Bear Creek, in Northern California, but someone I recommended them to, said the were basically worthless now.

I try to keep a thousand or 2 of the jacketed bullets I use on the shelf, and pick them up on sale (I just opened my last 1000 Win FMJ from the 25k I bought in 1984, so I'll be keeping my eyes open for a sale!) I do powder and primers the same. (now is too late to stock up!)

I usually make an order every November at Bayou for 9mm and 45.

Rocky Mountain Reloading has some stock right now. I just placed an order for 200gr 10mm. Everybody seems to be running 3 to 6 weeks behind on orders.

I just checked the Xtreme website 2 days ago with the same result. 7-10 days BEFORE they take any new orders. Everything gone. I didn't need anything, just checking the site. I could go back to lead, if that's what it comes to. I have new bullet molds and some lead. Right now I'm just weathering the storm.

In 9mm I shoot Zero Bullets (from Roze Distributing). They've been out for a while. Not sure if they're taking orders.

Right now Bayou Bullets (which I also shoot a lot of) says they have about a 4 week wait. This is quite accurate. I received an order recently and it shipped almost 4 weeks to the day from when I placed the order.

So.....at least with bullets.....they can be found if you can wait a little bit.....and there are places that will take orders although the wait is much longer than usual. Certainly a lot better than on the primer side - where "nothing" can be found and it's also hard to find places that will take orders (at least from what I've seen).

Lightbulb ORDERS

Have two separate orders in -- paid for and ship in 3/4 weeks. This is why I have kept up my supply down through the years--- dont have to wait to load when I need to.

This storm is going to stick around for a long time.

Default Questions

1. Which brand of molds do you recommend?
2. Do you recommend powder coating?
3. Are cast bullets bad for the guns in any way?

I have a good supply of lead and a DO-IT Lead melting pot. I have made a lot of jigs and sinkers. New to reloading but have a Dillon XL750 and plan on loading .357 in the beginning.

I have a half dozen or so vendors bookmarked and when I need bullets I start checking them every day, sometimes more than once. Eventually I find what I want and order right away. Prices are scary but if you want it you'll pay for it.

I've been lucky so far in that my LGS has been able to supply me with primers when I want them. Sometimes I have to take magnums as that's all they have and prices are up, but at least I can get them. I'm slowly building a stockpile.

Both Berry's and Rocky Mountain Reloading are producing and shipping. They are just shipping slowly due to backlogs. Last batch of RMR took almost four weeks. Last batch of Berry's took over two weeks.

Some time back my late father and I started accumulating a backlog of swaged or cast bullets in 38 and 45 for the target loads we were then using. A couple of my shooting buddies who have quit or slowed down on their loading contributed a couple of thousand more including some in 32. These on hand, along with a fair number of cast bullets I’ve added and even a few from my friend “beagle” put me at enough bullets to reload for at least a year or two without melting a single ingot of lead... but I have a couple of drawers full of moulds and about a half ton of lead if needed.

My one regret in all of this is that Hornady discontinued all of their swaged bullets in 32 caliber.... that will probably be the first size I have to start casting again. ;(

After reading the original post, I reached out to Xtreme Bullets since I have an order that they are processing. They actually do have bullets in stock, but they removed the inventory from their pages to stop incoming orders so that they can catch up on existing orders.

At the moment, I am loading long held jacketed bullets and casting what I need for practice and local matches. I cast virtually all of the handgun bullets that I shoot, but purchase my rifle bullets.

Glenn,

For molds, I have a number of Lyman, and RCBS. I am just venturing into Lee molds for 9mm RN, 45 TC, and 40 TC.

I am just moving into powder coating because of my Glock 17. Honestly, getting into powder coating is significantly less expensive than going with a Lyman or RCBS Lubrisizer, unless you start with the Lee Tumble lube molds.

Lead bullets won't harm your guns. if your lead is too soft, or you push the bullets too fast without a has check, expect leading of your barrel. To help harden my bullets that go through the Lubrisizer, I drop my bullets from the molds into a bucket of water to "quench cast" them. For bullets that will be powder coated, I drop them on a towel to cool.

For the bullets that may be loaded to replicate magnum loads, remember to install has checks!

Default Order early......

Most places I've dealt with are reputable and acknowledge delays. Don't wait until you NEED bullets to order more.

Just tried a new supplier I happened across by accident Hoosier Bullets. Since they had inventory and fair pricing, I tried a couple thousand of their 1417gr 9mm coated bullets. I was pleased with the quality and how fast they shipped out. They shoot great as well. There was one little glitch which actually worked out great for me. The last bag of 500 I opened had some 124gr mixed in. When contacted about the error, the owner is sending me another bag of bullets to make up for it and I was able to try the 124gr which I like as well and maybe better. I will be ordering a few thousand of those soon. Only one order, but so far I am really pleased with them.

You might also check local shops. I typically order my bullets, but I noticed at the Cabela's in KC this weekend that they had a few boxes of 9mm 124-gr X-Treme (500 pcs) as well as some in .38 and .45. There were a few boxes of Berry's bullets as well.

Xtreme is showing 380, 9mm, 40 & 45 bullets in stock.
If you need lead bullets, Falcon Bullets has lubed and coated bullets in most calibers. Reasonable prices/shipping.

Just FYI :-)

Been a week since I made my last post about bullets in stock at Xtreme/Falcon Bullets. Update-Received the 2K 38 SWC's today from Falcon Bullets. They're in TN. Total was $152.35 ($138/2K + $14.35 ship). Wasn't really expecting them for a few weeks, but that's okay!

Also ordered 2K plated from Xtreme; have received shipping confirmation, but no tracking info as of yet. Really don't expect any for a few weeks.

So, anyone who can use cast lead/coated, you might check out Falcon Bullets; have used them for several years and have never been disappointed.

Only when I get lazy. I have my casting rig packed in a kitty litter bucket. It goes camping with me. Makes for a nice productive afternoon in the campsite.

From my reloading bench .

A Lee 2 cavity mould $21.99 , Lee Production Pot $69.99 (electric pot) , Lee Liquid Alox Bullet lube $6.99.

Total $98.97

Being able to manufacture all the bullets you want is a good thing ...You don't need a permit , you don't need a license , the government doesn't check you out ...for now ...might want to buy a bullet mould while it's still legal to own one .

Just FYI, went to the Xtreme website and they are showing several bullets in stock-that's good.

The bad-they have raised their prices again (2nd time since COVID struck).
Maybe to be expected, but the 115 gr 9mm bullets were originally $36/500. Then went to $42/500. Today $48.50. The 40 cal have really gone up and 165 gr. plated are now $61.75/500.

At least for the short term, I'll be going back to cast lead for general plinking/range use. YMMV

Disappointing news today: Went to the Falcon Bullet website and all that remains is a statement that they have closed the business and all equipment would be sold. All in house orders would be filled/shipped.

No warnings, or notices that they were closing. I can only hope that the 2 orders I placed yesterday will be shipped. No contact information, nothing; available on the website. Have done business with them through the years and this is very disappointing to me. :-(

I just recently ordered .44s direct from Federal. Prices weren’t too bad and I realize it’s not going to be fast shipped but that’s ok.
At least they had it.

Default Missouri Bullets, Bayou Bullets and Penn bullets....

....are companies that I use/used a lot and mostly buy coated (Hi tech) cast bullets. I just ordered from Missouri and it said 6-8 weeks, but they have been good for it. Last order I placed took only 3-4 weeks.

Zero Bullets (I tried the heavy plated) are very good.

I don't used plated bullets so can't help you there . I generally cast my own , except a few bullets I don't use that often . The commercial casters that I use are all turning & burning . Shipping & supply delays seem to be the norm right now . In general finding the components I want requires more shopping now & some of the prices I've seen have made it more of a challange . Biggest PITA is getting primers I'd much rather buy by the case & pay hazmat , I just buy enough to make it worth while . Lately I've found more locally rather than online . Again some shops want $ 40-45 a 1,000 . One fellow on a local forum has been getting $ 50 a k for Fed 210 & 155's . Look a little harder & you can find them cheaper . I'll admit that I did see this coming & bought as much as I could afford the first quarter of this year .

I just ordered some Bayou coated 9mm, and was quoted 6 weeks.

No warnings, or notices that they were closing. I can only hope that the 2 orders I placed yesterday will be shipped. No contact information, nothing; available on the website. Have done business with them through the years and this is very disappointing to me. :-(
Update: received shipping notice on one of my orders yesterday. 2k will be delivered this Sat. Waiting on shipping notice for remaining 3K.

I only shoot lead but I wanted to experiment with some jacketed out of my Contender. There are none to be had. I find it surprising that you can't even find slugs. OH well. I'll survive. I've got boolit molds.

My 2K order scheduled for delivery Sat, received shipping notice yesterday for remaining 3K; will be delivered next Tuesday. Then I'll have to look into other vendors. Have some good leads from this thread! :-)

Falcon Bullets has been very good to me the past several years, sorry to see them close :-(
