I’m happy with the sample Bayou 135s I bought so I got a bunch more. At this rate, it will get me through summer and then I’ll try the Blues.
What is my favorite coated bullet? answer: The ones I cast and coat myself.
No interest in FMJ? You can get them around $88 per 1k if you buy 2k.

1st 500 - Issues with follow up shots for an old guy - USPSA starts next week - Hoping these will help. Love them so far.
Ran a Mag with 3x 115, 124 and then these 147's What a smooth shooter. M9 and a 1911 short barrel.
Sig Sauer P226R 357 Sig/40 S&W
, P220 - W.German 45, Sig 1911 45 Ultra Compact and a few others.
A sample of Blues is on the way.
My reloading components seem to disappear quickly.
Yup. They make excellent boolits, with a lot of variety.

The Blue Bullet company sizes theirs to .355, so I will see how they do. I’m hoping that the slightly smaller diameter and more pointed shape will be more forgiving with the CZ.

I dont understand why you would buy these when you can get jacketed round nose from rmr with there 8 % off discount 147.20 for 2000
XLT - You got my attention with this price. How do you qualify for the 8% discount?

That's a "me too" for that question. The Q&A section on their website says:
"Does RMR offer discounts?
"Yes and no. We have been asked by many deserving individuals how they can obtain a discount. Police, Military, Firefighters, Competitive Shooters, Youth Shooters, Militia Groups, FFL Holders and more, are among those who contact us. We agree. You do deserve a discount. So, rather than dealing with the hassle of multiple discount codes and verification programs, we decided to keep our margins lower and offer a discount to everyone. This is why you’ll find great prices every day on our products. We aren’t flamboyant about this, we’re just regular people trying to treat our customers right."
A mind is a terrible thing.
I've shot lots of BBI in the past and been very pleased with them.
As for bulk bullets, I mostly shoot ibejiheads now.
The prices are good, they're a big supporter/sponsor to USPSA matches and the owner shoots at our club often, so it's possible to get them delivered in person and save shipping costs.
Sliced bread, the greatest thing since the 1911.

RMR has discounts all the time I signed up and made an account, I get there emails when they have discounts. the last one was 8flash on the coupon code. the before that was rmrinhouse 8 great bullets 148.80 for 2000 rounds of 124 rn full metal jackets. And free shipping
I just checked 8flash still works 10/10/18
For me, Precision bullets. They are swaged for the same weight and geometry consistency as jacketed bullets and they have always been quite accurate. Their old coating has always been 100% perfect for me, but they have an improved on.
They are hard enough for any 9x19, 9x21, .38 super and, if they made them, for the .44 Mag.
MISSOURI BULLETS filled the bill for me with their 38 S&W and32 Wad Cutter coated bullets. Will be trying their other flavors soon. Excellent service as well. JMHO
Old thread but wanted to update.
So far I’ve shot in 9mm approximately :
800 Summers Enterprises 145gr RN
1 case of Bayou 135gr
3 cases of Blues 135gr TC
1 case of Blues 125gr TC
Cases of 180gr Blues
Testing in 40:
Testing in 9mm:
Acme 125 RN
Bayou 120 TC, too short for Glock. Bullet setback.
BBI 125 TC

I am currently loading SnS bullets in .38.
I use precision bullets, have for years in 40 and 9, they feed perfectly for My Glock and my STI.

I have shot some samples from most of these fine suppliers. I settled on the Summers 145 RN for USPSA and Steel Challenge, price being my motivator. I will say my experience with that wt in the conical/flat nose style generally had a accuracy edge, particularly at the longest targets. Certainly not enough to matter in most run and gun stages and my aging body and skills
I have been very happy w/ Blue Bullets 135gr. TC 9mm.
