Just an FYI....
Thanks for the heads up. I consider myself borderline ocd and can't force myself to pay for something that has a good possibility of not working. They state that the coloring might be off and possibly the diameter. If the diameter is off then I do not want to waste my brass, primers or powder to make 'em work. If anybody gets some please post up the quality and a range report.
Thanks for the heads-up. I picked up some 125gr .38/.357 bullets. Limit was 1 box of 500. I started shooting some silhouette matches at my local club with lever guns in 38/357 so this was right up my alley. All the usual sources are completely dried up.
I've had success with every 'blemished' bullets order I've ever got from Midway. Usually I can't even find the blemish.
Thanks for the heads up. They wanted 17 bucks to ship the 500 bullets 30-40 miles. If I would have seen the link early and been able to get the 150 gr FMJ's along with some 168's and some maybe some 223 bullets it may have been worth the effort to pick them up. Normally I get 4-5000 blems at a time and pick them up which makes it worth the effort. The sure do shoot good though so don't worry about the description. I rarely notice any discoloration and if I do it's just a small speck.
I'll run out of powder and primers long before I run out of the 150 grain blems. The last several times I've gotten them I've gone to town. They are hornady bullets and they shoot very well. I loaded up several in mixed SBS, PMJ nato brass with CCI #34 primes and 39.5 grains of IMR-4895 that shot very well. I got several groups under one inch at 100 yards if I didn't screw it up. 100 yards is max at my range so I tend use nice mild loads. In the past they even used to same item number as hornday but just put a "B" at the end for blemished. Now they have their own item number.
