I'm looking to start loading with lead for my G17 to save money. I've looked at some sources like Berry's and a few others but their crazy. I can buy FMJ Montana Gold bullets for what they want for lead. Anyone out there have a source for lead bullets? I found a company called Dardas but they haven't got back to me in a few days. TIA

I guess you already know about the stock Glock barrel and lead bullet issue.

A couple are coated bullets. Some guys are shooting them out of stock barrels. I use Lone Wolf barrels in my Glocks.

Missouri Bullets is the place to go for lead.

Montana gold has great bullets they are a little more than lead but well worth it especially with their 9mm pricing.

Missouri Bullet, as mentioned above, is excellent. Great prices, fantastic service, and very fast shipping. Give them a try, you won't be sorry.

Just ordered 1k of the 230 gr RN .45acp. Will be my first attempt with lead bullets but at half the cost of plated, I couldn't pass it up.

$58 shipped for LRN 9mm is pretty good with that Precision Bullet company.

My experience is with Lead Round Nose (LRN) 230 gr for 45 Automatic:
I was using Vance Bullets from the local gun shop, but found too much leading.

I did some internet research and found positive comments about Roze Distribution and Zero Bullets. I bought their bullet #118. It is a swaged bullet, and causes no leading in my barrel. It also has a much higher quality (shape, uniformity, dimensions) than the Vance cast bullet.

and not to take the thread off topic: I use my stock factory barrel.

edit: here is the web site: http://www.rozedist.com/

also, I have nothing against other people, haven't tried them. I just quit looking when I was happy with the #118 bullet.

I heard bad from Matt Dardas at Dardas cast bullets. Great guy, I found a review of his bullets and they sound like great quality so I'll give them a try. Thanks to all that replied.

I used to shoot Berry's Bullets at one point but their current price is ridiculously high. I now use Two Alpha Bullets (http://www.twoalphabullets.com/Products.htm) out of an OEM Glock barrel with no leading issues (but I should add that I only shoot bare lead bullets through this barrel). If you don't want to shoot bare lead and you would like to keep your original barrel you can also look at Black Bullets (https://www.blackbulletsinternational.com/) which are molly coated.

I see nothing wrong with wanting to purchase an aftermarket barrel to shoot lead through your Glock but, if you are only going to shoot lead (and no FMJ bullets) it is not necessary. As a side note and, interestingly enough, I see more lead accumulation in the barrel of my wife's gun (an M&P) after only a few hundred rounds fired than I do in the barrel of my G17.

Howdy,

A guy near me has his own cast equipment and I buy my bullets from him.

.38/9mm 125gr LTC $30.00/500

.40cal 155gr LSWC $35.00/500

They are very hard cast and do not lead my G23's stock barrel when fired at about 1,000ft/sec.

I'm working on loading up 1000 Dardas bullets in 10mm. I've got about 400 made and I'm very impressed. They are an excellent profile they haven't caused leading problems and they are cheaper than jacketed. I weighed a few on my precision balance and they were all within 2 grains of their stated weight and most were dead on! I'm very happy.

I run their 10mm TC. Cheaper for me than twoalpha since they're local.

ETA: I run a lot of Ranier's leadsafe in jacketed. I'm always up for cheap jacketed bullets too.
This thread is top ranked on Google for `FMJ Montana Gold lead`

I have yet to find a better cast bullet or better price than Missouri Bullet. Brad takes care of his customers very well.

I noticed this yesterday..... A four month old thread got a shot in the arm for an OP that hasn't been around in a month or so :whistling:

On the other hand, the information is still relevant.

You can't make a dead horse run faster by beating on it but people on this forum try anyway. So what is there about twoalphabullets that I can't beat; price, quality, accuracy, never have to clean gun, etc?

Try this. I just ordered 1000/ 45 23grn FMJ@ $114 delivered. 9mm FMJ @ $68 to $74. I'll be ordering alot more 9mm, 45, 38 if the first shipment looks good. Can't beat the cost. I just canceled a couple of back orders for Winchester 230 grn FMJs at about $150 per thou + shipping.

I have been using TwoAlphaBullets for several years and I find that, at least in my experience, they offer the best balance between outstanding quality and affordable price.

As long as you take the time to work up a load properly, you can achieve good accuracy with them. Once again, in my case, I have achieved the best accuracy using Solo 1000.

As to saying that I never have to clean my gun; sadly this is not the case. That is one thing I still have to do (regardless of the type of ammunition).
