    Ordered 1000 copper plated .38 158 gr round nose flat point bullets via phone today from X-Treme Bullets, so am on a three to four week waiting list for delivery.

    Price has been all over the place the last few months, from $94/1000 including delivery up to the current posting of $118/1000 on their web site. I paid $99.

    Their web site ordering will be back up Monday May 6, but I don't know what the prices will be at that point.

    Welcome to the club. Even in the non reloading business prices are going up. My Son just received his second "Price Adjustment" notice from his main supplier for this year alone.

    Obamacare, taxes, raw materials, labor, etc are all going up. So doth the price of the finished product.

    Look at the bright side. At least X-Treme didn't take a lesson from all those profiteers out there.

    Bullets will probably drop in price once demand tapers off... price of raw materials is going down.

    I just got shipment confirmation from Freedom Munitions, it looks like xtreme bullets is a sister company.

    The website is very similar, must be affiliated somehow.

    I'm thinking that they are, the Freedom Munitions uses the xtreme bullets, and the websites are almost identical. My guess is probably same ownership. Should take delivery tomorrow :)
