I am looking for a cheap place to buy some lead bullets. Where do you guys get yours?

I've bought a lot of bullets from George at Kead Bullets. Great prices and excellent hard cast bullets.

Thanks, I was looking for that site! I somehow deleted it from my favorites and could not remember the name. That looks exactly like what I want, reasonable prices on both the bullets and the shipping. I usually order from Georgia Arms, but last time I did it cost me $30 for shipping! To say the least I was not happy about paying as much for shipping as a box of 500 bullets would cost.

Usually try to buy them locally but the nearest gun shop doesn't have them at times and the next closest about 40 miles away so I often get them from Midway but the shipping charges are really going up lately.

2400, just wanted to thank you again. Just put me in an order from kead bullets. He really is a nice guy. And postage is reasonable, something I can't say from a lot of the bullet sellers. Don't know why others can't sell them that cheap and postage that cheap if he can do it!!!!!

I have a supplier down in Melbourne FL that I buy everything through. It's Space Coast Bullets. They are a Dillon Dealer and that's what I use. Couple of nice guy own it, and they give super service. They have just about everything a reloader would want. If not they will get it for you.

I don't buy lead bullets too often, but when I do, I just pick them up from one of the big ammo guys that sell bullets, cases, etc. at the big gun shows. Small gun shops don't typically have many or any cast bullets to choose from, but they are just too heavy to order and have shipped. I let someone else pay the freight for moving them around.

Gutpile, There are a couple of bulletcasters around close.

Meister Bullets is located in Verdigris and you can pick up at their location if you like. Flat rate shipping for $9.80 (2,000 bullets). Here is the link:

http://www.meisterbullets.com/

Sureshot Hard Cast Bullets is located in Tecumseh, east of OKC. You can also pick up there as well. NOTE: Their prices are per 1,000 bullets whereas most other places are per 500 bullets. Here is the link:

I heard metal prices are suppose to take a big jump in Jan/07. I might have to look into that myself. My big problem would be getting the lead as I can't drive anymore. Oh well we'll see.

There are a bunch of dealers who sell lead in bulk also. Can't recall which ones right now, just do a search. They also have it in different formulas as per antimony or other additives.

Just look around, you'll find what you want.

Good luck.

Start checking with tire shops, car dealers, etc, wheel weights make great bullets. I get around 1500 pounds of weights for free every year. I do bring a dozen donuts or a case of soda every couple of trips as a thank you. Let me know if you need any help getting started, I'd be happy to help.

Casting is another one of those things I used to do way back when. I still have a bunch of ingots that are pure wheel weights and some that I mixed a little tin with. Probably have a three hundred pounds or so. Hmmmm...with the price of bullets nowadays, maybe I should dig that old stuff out. I hadn't reloaded for 20 years and have had a few problems remembering what I used to do. Guess it will probably be the same for casting.
