    Just received another order of 185 gr. SWC. Bullets are consistent in manufacture, uniformity and performance. Good company to deal with, prices and shipping are great, nice people too! Thanks for your company and products.

    Bought some bullets for a revolver and 9m, both swc. Bullets were accurate in both (within my shooting ability…). The 124 grainers fed through the 9mm with no problems. Liked them so much I ordered 500 rounds for 45 ACP. Service is outstanding and packaging protects bullets well. Good bullets have not seen leading occurring.

    Very happy with these bullets. I just ordered another 500. Extremely tight grouping (sorry. Didnt measure) at 25 yards with 3.9 gr of 700-x out of a Colt 1911 Mrk 4 Series 70. I know these will help to bring up my average in my Bullseye league (God knows I need all the help I can get).
