    Thanks for posting that link...good prices for sure :cool:
    I have switched from traditional cast/lubed bullets to Hi Tek coated that sell for about the same as regular lubed/cast.
    The big advantage of this for me is way less smoke and a much cleaner gun/loading dies, and I never touch any lead.
    That, and coated are sold without a lube groove and can be fed thru a bullet feeding die during reloading.
    Bullets like these: 9mm 115 Gr. RN - 500 Ct.

    Watch the vids at the link you posted to see the amount of smoke you will get shooting those bullets.
    :D

    Thanks for that! I had no idea such a thing existed. I'm just getting back into reloading and had been using lead cast bullets on the cheap. I will give the coated bullets a try.

    Thanks again!

    I know this isn't the question but...

    One of my sons just started reloading 45 Colt. He bought a reloading press kit, dies, and then ordered online 100 Bullets, 100 primers, and one pound of powder.
    the primers and powder could not ship together so were shipped separately. This meant he paid two Hazmat fees.
    The first 100 bullets cost him dearly!

    Bullets $26 per 100 or .26 ea
    Powder$27 per pound
    Primers $4 per 100
    Hazmat fees $25
    Shipping $10
    _____________________
    $ 92 for that first 100!

    He learned the hard way! Buy in bulk. and buy local to beat the Hazmat fees!

    When I'm going to buy I hit up all my friends to see how many ways I can split the fees! Good Luck DR

    It’s a VERY valid point though. Thank you for sharing.
