Which Lead Bullet to Buy

I need to purchased some .45 200gr LSWC for IDPA shooting w/a 1911. Where I use to buy is no longer available. Been looking @ Oregon trail, Meister Bullets and Missouri Bullet Co. I noticed that MBC is about 1/2 the price of the other two. Any thoughts or suggestions?

I have purchased umpteen thousands of 158gr .38 and 230gr .45 from Missouri Bullet. They have super fast shipping, and my non-scientific, very random testing has shown the weights very consistent.

I would highly recommend them.

Cheers!

Yeah, OC are way over priced & too hard for many applications IMO. MB makes a good product, so does Two Alpha.

I've also had good experience with Missouri. Velocity Bullets (http://velocitybullets.com/) also does a great job and their bullets so far have been a little more "finished" than the Missouri bullets and just about identical prices.

Cannot do better than Missouri Bullet Co. I have bought/loaded/shot thousands of them, and they are excellent. Great people to do business with, quality product, very fast shipping. Just wish all companies were as good as MBC.

I've only shot a couple hundred MBC lead bullets in .38 special out of my 642. They did pretty darn well. I ended up having to place my order over the phone due to some computer problems on my end, but they were nice folks to deal with. I plan on buying a lot from them in the future.

Thanks for all the replies. Looked like MBC won hands down. And as for the part about their fast shipping--hell, I ordered from them Monday afternoon, and they arrived today! (WED)

Shhh... don't let that source out. More for me.

Great guy to deal with. Bullets exit the barrel and impact paper for cheaper.

Yuth put out good stuff. I may have to try those 124 RN's out again in 9mm for my Spartan.
