    Just ordered 1,000 bullets

    From Missouri Bullets. I ordered the 200 gr. coated RNFP and I can't wait for them to get here. I'm going to get them loaded right up and then maybe I'll order some more.

    This is the great thing about reloading, we can keep shooting when others are sitting on their ammo.

    I really don't need or have room for anymore reloads, but I have 500 bullets for .357, that have been sitting on my reloading bench for about a year. If I run out of things to do, I may load them up. Weather is supposed to be nice and warm next week, so I can go and make room for more!

    I need to get an order together for projectiles. While the shelves are stocked with finished rounds, it's a good way to pass some time.

    Yeah, I'm slowly working my way toward reloading utopia - full target ammo canisters for all calibers, and enough projectiles sitting on my shelves to do it again. I'll get there.

    While picking up a used gun from my favorite LGS Monday, the Owner and I decided to order some 9mm bullets. He is just starting to reload pistol ammo, been reloading rifle ammo for awhile. He asked if I could share my 9mm loading info, which I did. So he ordered powder and 1K of cheap jacketed 124 grn bullets. I will be probably get 3-500 from him when I go in tomorrow to pick up another Gunbroker gun ( S&W MP9 2.0 service, used in exc condition for ...wait for it...$305 including shipping.) The used gun I picked up Monday is a like new condition Taurus 3" model 80, in a nickel finish, I paid total $185 for it. Getting it prep'd for one of my reviews. Now my gun fund has run dry,,guess I could scalp sell a few of my older 9mm's on armslist to replenish.

    I always kinda wonder in the back of my mind what would become bartering material if society came to a halt....I'm thinking gun powder, and probably 22 LR. But, anything really having to do with making ammunition would likely be a valuable commodity.

    Silverstring, I'll look forward to your coming gun reviews. I always enjoy them.

    If you wouldn't mind: When you receive your MBC order let us know your thoughts on their packaging. Thanks.

    I just got 500 bullets of .430 Hard Cast Keith 240gr w/ HiTek coating from them. I don't need ammo, but about a week ago I foresaw being home a lot and ordered some supplies to give me something to do when I got bored and needed that kind of activity. This was my first order from Missouri, but I will order from them again. About a month ago I'd bought a 250 bullet box of 158gr LRFN from HSM cheap, so I don't need anything in .38, but when I do I've got a couple of things I want to try from Missouri.

    I'm a first time customer that just got their first package from them a few days ago, so I'll throw my thoughts down in case it's helpful. I like the box and thought it was a fairly clever way to be able to use USPS's priority shipping with a heavy item. I was curious how well it worked in the long run with bigger orders though. 500 240gr bullets weigh 17.7 pounds. I can't imagine getting a carton of 4 of those in 1 package.

    I can relate.

    I recently bought 1,000 Precision Delta 124 grain 9mm Match JHP Bullets at a moving sale from a shooting buddy of my Pistol Club. As he was moving from/fleeing the State of Illinois for New Mexico, he couldn't take everything with him and he gave me a good deal on them. I plan to work up a load for them using Alliant Green Dot powder. Target Velocity will be around 1100 fps or so. Note that these are Match Target JHP's and are not designed to expand, no matter how much you might want them to.

    I am also well stocked on .45 ACP Bullets as I bought 2000 each of Berry's 230 grain Plated RN's and 200 grain Flat Points from my local Distributor back in November of last year.
    Just haven't gotten around to loading them, but I do have plenty of loaded .45 ACP on hand.

    Looking forward to reading more of your reviews!!!
