    Brazos Precision Bullets

    Ordered a sample pack of their 38/357 158 SWC coated: 5 lb bag (220+ projectiles) for $17.99 shipped. That's a great deal on sample packs. Should be here in 2 days. I've never used this vendor before.

    38 158gr SWC/Bevel Base/Groove (664ct., $0.0632/bullet)

    Received them Friday afternoon. The coating is very even and not sparse. I mic'd 15 of them and they come in as advertised @ 0.358". When ordering the samples, one is not given a diameter option. No drop down box for that. In ordering greater quantities on a different screen the sizing option is there. Bullet length runs anywhere from 0.701" to 0.712". That's not a concern for me as I crimp on the crimp groove and it is what it is. My COL is running @ 1.460". The beveled base is clean and generous. On some brands, the bevel base is somewhat beveled and doesn't appear to be even. These are symmetric. I'm loading some up this evening (Titegroup 3.4 grains via my Lee Pro Auto Disk size 30). I'll head out this week to the range.
    All in all, this appears to be a great value an hopefully will be buying more.

    Update: Received an email from Brazos today re 1) sample bullets sizing option and 2) BHN. They will size your sample bullet order but that request needs to be entered into the comment section. Not sure where that's located on the order form but that's the correct procedure. BHN is 13.

    Went out shooting yesterday and the Brazos bullets performed up to my expectations. In addition to Xtreme and Acme, I've got a new 38 special bullet maker in the mix. And I'll be ordering more Brazos! Love that price and the $$$ savings.

    Nice. Bookmarked the link.

    They must have changed the site since the OP. It has an Options block with lube selection and size selection. It's not a drop menu, but little blocks you click. It's not available for the sample bags, though.
