    Where you buying your bullets?

    I'm looking for something cheap but a few sites leave me a little leary. Where's everyone getting theirs?

    Looking for either lead or plated lead. About to order from Berry's. Just wondering if anyone knows any better sites to check out.

    Berry's and Raineer have been good for me. For punching holes in paper or knocking down steel plates there is no need to buy expensive lead.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I've had really good deals on large bulk purchases from Gunbroker (you just have to watch for them). Natchez, Lucky Gunner (expensive, but they can get stuff when nobody else can), the-armory.com, Cabellas...

    Also check out AmmoEngine:

    There is one group (you see them at every trade show in the southeast) that burned me for about 300 bucks (charged my card, sent emails saying it was delayed but coming (so that I wouldn't cancel the charge), never delivered anything and refused to back out the charge). PM me and I'll disclose their name.

    Oh yeah - Walmart!

    I don't shoot much plated, but for online reloading sales, Graf & Sons, Wideners, and Powder Valley are all excellent. Of course, you can try manufacturer's sites if the sell direct.

    Mostly Midway and Cabellas, but I don't distinguish between practice and SD loads so I shoot jacketed bullets.

    Depends on who has what I’m looking for. My last few shipments came directly from Buffalo Bore and some Nyclads from Mid-Way. Beyond that, I have a horrible memory of who’s-who on my ammo vendors list. I try and not buy from my local dealer as his prices are the highest around. If you're Ok with the basic stuff, then Wal-Mart is a good source aside from the wacko's.

    Try target barn (google it). Also look into Montana gold bullets.

    I've had good luck w/ TJConovera.com , All orders over $45 shipped free, under shipping is $5. Midway and Grafs are good also, but I live instate and it costs me tax :).
