    This is my first attempt at loading hard cast rnfp bullets in my 45-70. I have not loaded as of yet. However, I want to thank Jim for his advice and patience during my learning curve. Jim is a great source of knowledge. Thank you.

    Just finished loading my first fifty rounds and I am extremely pleased with the final results. The bullets came in perfect condition (I ordered 200), were uniformly lubricated, and seated well as they were all within specifications. Thumbs for overall quality. I also received a hand written thank you note which was appreciated. Stateline Bullets will be me “Go-To” brand going forward.

    Well I am new to the lead bullet. I had a lot of questions. I could not find the answers I was looking for on you tube or web sites I went to. I found Stateline Bullets and an actual phone number, so I called. A gentleman answered and the conversation began. He took the time out of his busy schedule to talk to someone who had no idea about hard cast lead bullets. 10 minutes later my questions were answered, and I told him I would buy bullets from his site, and I did. 405 grain hard cast bullet for my 45-70 Trapper. Quick turn around with shipping and a quality wrapped package arrived a couple of days later. The bullets all measured correctly and weighed as good as any other Hornady reloading bullet. Very pleased with the service and quality of this small business. Will do business again. Thanks, Bruce W

    Good price, fast shipping, and best of all, my Browning BPCR just put 6 of them in under 1 inch at 100 yards. Using Re-7. Approx 1300fps. When can I get some more?

    I haven’t had a chance to reload yet, but all the bullets have a great lube on them and haven’t found any dinged up. Great service – easy online ordering and checkout, arrived when they were expected. Looks like I’ve found a home for getting lead bullets!

    Great product , uniform , even casting , provided me w/unlubed units for black powder … lube grooves very uniform , slight camfer at bottom insures even seating ….. hope to see them soon in 385 gr. …… “73 Springfield carbine seems to like that weight better ….

    Thanks so much!

    I just finished loading my first batch of cast bullets for my 45-70 1884 trapdoor Springfield. Can’t wait to go shoot! Stateline Bullets had these in stock at the right price, and delivery was very quick! I’ll definitely do business here again!

    New to loading cast lead rifle bullets, but I can confirm these are AWESOME in my Marlin 1895 Cowboy over some RL7. Uniformly lubed, uniformly sized, great packaging, and a friendly hand written note thanking me for buying from them.

    I’ve also used their .38 special bullets in the past for plinking loads and they are equally impressive.

    Great products, and great people.

    Can’t wait for these to come back in stock so I can order a few hundred more!

    Quality cast bullets, good price, quick shipping, well packed, good communication and follow-up…what’s not to like. A ‘triple A’ transaction.
