Blue Bullets? Black Bullets?

It's been a while since I did any real reloading.  This Cowboy shooting thing has taken all my time and attention.  In my defense, I have no shortage of handloaded ammo around the place, so I really haven't had to do any reloading.

But, I was looking around at Joe's place today, and I see two companies who might be worth remembering, so I'm linking them here.  You all know t hat I use this blog as much for my own reference as yours, but Joe links to two bullet manufacturers I've never used.  Blue Bullets, and Black Bullets.  Both of them seem to be selling coated lead bullets, which might be really useful if you have neither the time, inclination, materials, or equipment to cast your own.

I cast my own bullets, but I'm not ashamed to use someone else's bullet when I find myself in a bind for time or materials.


They're pretty, ain't they?  Those are the blue bullets.  The black bullets look a lot like that except that they're.... black.

It looks like shipping is free.

And don't forget Berry's bullets. Swaged, copper-plated and swaged again. Extremely uniform and accurate--the only "complaint" (if you can call it a "complaint")is that they're so SMOOTH they're hard to grab with my sausage fingers... LOL

Your post is very helpful, thank you. When looking to make your own ammunition, there are a number of factors that you have to consider before you take the plunge. The first thing you need to do is understand the type of ammo you want, the size of the round that suites the weapon you are using, the types of equipment you need and the process that you want to use.
