    I've been lucky enough to pick them up at RMR and Precision Delta, but the only place that seems to have them in stock consistently is Xtreme.

    Montana Gold? If you watch, they pop up.
    Edit to add: they've got case lots of 200gr JFP and 230gr JHP in stock.

    You must have luck on your side, I check their site several times a week and haven't been there at the right time yet apparently!

    I haven’t loaded anything but coated lead in 10 years — no issues


    In stock and will ship within 48 hours — if Chandler can’t ship within 48 hours he’ll close down his store to catch up — won’t reopen till he has caught up and rebuilt his inventory

    Also could try Ibejiheads — good stuff, but harder to get with very little communication from owner — ibeji is local to me, know the owner, and have picked up at matches and his shop — haven’t been able to get ahold of him since covid but I believe he is still taking orders thru his website— I just refuse to pay shipping and sales tax when he is 20 minutes away

    Yeah I posted the other day that Delta Percision had some FMJ 45 ACP bullets the other day. I am all good for now and did not buy but passed on the info. I will post any 45 ACP bullets deals I see in the deals section of the classifieds.

    I use Cabelas for extreme bullets. The one's i buy from them are less than xtreme charges. And i use Accura outdoors too. They have a notify you feature.

    What did you order?
    I’m still on the fence with the 200 grn RN in 45 but I usually shoot SWC — the BBI swc is just fine and is the same mold as Ibeji — Ibeji makes a 185 rn that I do like a lot

    Back off on your power charges a little if you are used to loading FMJ — you should end up with a soft shooting load that performs well

    Ya know........ ;).

    Seriously, I'd suggest trying some 200 SWCs. Great for practice, typically a bit more accurate, cheaper and more available.

    Your choice, just a suggestion.
