    I am looking for a good source in bulk packaged/priced lead and jacketed bullets in:

    32 Auto
    9mm
    .40 SW
    .45 ACP
    .223

    I live in Comfort, so it really needs to be worth the drive. Currently I buy bullets at Bass Pro (VERY retail, but good for experimenting) and Gibson's in Kerrville (better prices and people). I would like to find a place that has high quantity bullets in stock without paying $20 per 100 for say .45 ACP.......

    Got any leads?

    It's not exactly San Antonio, but check out Widener's Shooting Supply. They sell several kinds of bulk bullets with shipping included. I just got a good deal on .308 145 grain FMJBTs. They have some nice deals on milspec .223 bullets.

    I would call Nagles Gunshop in SA. They seem to have everything, if they can find it. They are located on San Pedro Ave. It's worth a call before you go.

    Rottweiler - my home ISP went bankrupt, can't check the account on file with TGT........

    I did end up buying 500 lasercast .45 bullets from Sportsman's Warehouse on 1604. Cool store, AWESEOME prices on primers, but the bullets were a little on the high side. No matter, wanted to try them out - got all 500 loaded up, will test fire them tomorrow.

    The email just said that I cast lotsa boolits for 9,40,45 and a few other calibers. Figured we could work out a better deal than BPS, Cabelas or SW. and that I live between Hunt and Mt. Home. If you're registered on www.thefiringline.com , PM me there with some contact info. I'm Rottweiler there too.

    I couldn't figure out the PM thing on this board, but I did leave you a message on your profile.

    You mentioned .40 - is it a no-no to shoot cast bullets through a polygonal barrel?

    I couldn't get the PM thing to work either, that's why I said about the firing line. I can work their PM thing.

    Polygonal barrel as in a glock? I don't have a glock so I can't say about them. I'm sure it's been done though, My SIG 229 loves them.

    Well, by chance I found a really good source for cast bullets in Boerne. He uses a commercial bullet lead that is around 13-15 on the hardness scale. I bought 500 124g 9mm round nose and 500 230g .45 round nose - loaded up a few hundred of the 9mm and ran them through my 9mm AR-15 upper. They seem to work really well and I will be buying many more thousands of bullets from him.

    Guy's name is Tony Davis, company is "Brimstone Bullet Company" 830-377-8229

    Now I just need to find a good local source for jacketed bullets......
