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.

If it helps at all.... all the other "Blems" I have bought from Midway have worked quite well. Granted, those were from years past, and current production is probably run at a quicker pace.

These appear to be Hornady blems. All the previous blems sold out fast and the only thing I ever saw was cosmetic.

For me, worst case , they would be still better than typical fmj.

What do you guys think about...

Blemished Bullets 30 Caliber (308 Diameter) 150 Grain Full Metal Jacket Boat Tail Box of 500 (Bulk Packaged

And...

Blemished Bullets 30 Caliber (308 Diameter) 168 Grain Polymer Tip Box of 100 (Bulk Packaged)

The disclaimer on the diameter kinda has me worried...

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.

Dont worry the money you think your saving will be gone when it comes time to pay for shipping.
I agree with tango mike.

Usually midway has a coupon code to help offset it. That not way this month?

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.

No coupon codes right now.

You guys whining about shipping will wish you got some when these are gone . .

The Hornady 150FMJBT shoots extremely well out of all my .30 cal rifles, M14s, Garands and bolt guns.

I ordered 500 and Mrs LoB ordered 500.

These have not been available ANYWHERE for months now . .

Thanks from luigi

Well, I didn't want to ... but I ordered the 150 blems. Fantastic bullets with great accuracy.

Thanks for the heads up.

I just scored 500 of the 150 FMJ for $90.00 shipping included.

I have not tried these yet but with all of the good things I hear about them, I didn't mind the price if they are Hornady.

Anyone got any killer load data?

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.

Thanks from Ole Silver
