55 gr .224 FMJ pulldown projectiles, $54.50 per 1000

Postby yuppiejr on Wed Dec 14, 2011 7:57 am

Shipping for 1000 was around $15, however for 5000 it's only $18...

I came up with $291 shipped for 5000 55 grain FMJ bullets, less than $0.06 a pop.

I'm tapped out (too much time at Frontiersman, Cabin Fever, and Gunstop this month) but I'll take 1000 if it helps to build an order.

If it would help to make an order count me in for 1K

Be careful when ordering these... I've read some reviews that have stated these sorts of pulled bullets are worse than factory seconds. Basically the buyers found them to be as good as scrap because they didn't have concentricity, and were basically messed up beyond general usability.

yup - just ordered 5K and shipping was only $18.50


for me, i'm just getting them as plaster out of a bare bones AR build so i'm not looking for MOA or 5 shots on a cloverleaf. i jsut need some cheap noisemakers to break in all my movin parts :D

i figure with these and my buckets of brass i got sitting around i should be able to load up for about $0.17 a round :D

Some of the pulled 50BMG bullets I have are egg-shaped due to pulling process.
I have to push them thru a 0.5095 die to swage them round again to keep pressures the same thus enhancing accuracy.

Hopefully your .224"dia bullets will be better, but I doubt it!

I have shot "pulled" and re-sized AP 700 grain projectiles at 1000 yards and kept them within 14".
Also the resizing operation saves wear and tear on my expensive barrels.
