For my 9mm, I usually buy 125 grn lead RN bullets, sized to .356".

I get it from whomever is the cheapest. Last time, it was from an e-Bay seller.

I haven't purchased from this company. But, you may want to give it a try.........

*prices are per 500 box.

PS........I get my .38 Special CowBoy bullets here (no 9mm)........

*prices are per 1000.

Wash-Ar15,

Thanks for the tip..........I'll add the web address to my favorites.

www.twoalphabullets.com/Products.htm

BTW.....how about some comments on delivery, product Q.C. and all that?

I ask because, another company that I know of......had some great prices (but, a very bad rep. for delivery).

Aloha, Mark

I bought 1000 125 gr 9mm RN bullets from Missouri Bullet Co. Fast shipping. Shot about 200 reloads today. Decent accuracy. Not fantastic but decent. I'm still working up a good loading on it though. 1st 100 reloads were under 4.3 grains of Bullseye. 2nd 100 were charged with 4.6 grains of Bullseye. Both had an OAL of 1.116-1.120. I might try 4.9 grains and see if accuracy improves at all.

Also, the majority of the bullets that I've weighed actually weigh around 126-127 grains.

I cast and shoot 124 grain 9 mm bullets all the time. I use Lee 2-Cavity Bullet Mold TL356-124-2R 124 Grain Tumble Lube 2 Ogive Radius. I fire then in a Taurus 92 and a Sig P225, no problems. I can reload and fire 9 mm for the same price per round as .22 LR.

I shoot lead 9mm bullets through my Glock 26 all of the time. If you are going to buy them, I would get the ones with the greyish coating on them. They behave just like a jacket bullet, but with none of the drawbacks such as cost and barrel wear.

At one time I exclusively shot Hardcast 125gr (or 124gr) RNL

I have had very good luck with Missouri Bullets... I shoot a mid range load of Titegroup and it rocks! Out of the LW bbl it is a nice pleasant load to shoot!

I had originally ordered from another comcany in Texas that promised to ship and never did. after getting tired of the bS I ordered from two alpha. sent them a check and it came the next week. I talked to him once on the phine and he seems to be a good guy.

His bullets are really good. I'm going to order some more 175 swc and 180 Tc in 40 sw soon.

here are some pix of the last order

Me too and then 9mm got cheap, so I went to factory (WallyWorld stuff and bulk surplus) and spent my reloading time reloading more expensive stuff (rifle and .45lc). Now it is all expensive stuff so I am going to have to dust off the 9mm dies.
