    Not bad prices. I buy a lot of Nosler seconds. It's usually discolored copper or the wrong color polymer tip on their BT bullets.

    i was wondering what the blem part was, as if it's a mar in the jacket, it will likely effect accuracy.

    does anyone know if midway sells prvi bullets. i got my graff catalog yesterday, and prvi sells packs of 100 bullets for a couple bucks more than name brand 50 packs.

    I'm really tempted to get some... anyone use any?

    The blem is usually cosmetic.

    The Blem is always cosmetic. Usually just tarnished jackets or as stated above the wrong color PT.

    Those bullets are gonna be way more blemished than that after they smack a steel plate running 3000 fps. ;)

    The only thing I would buy is 270 130gr, and I can get them cheaper at Sportsmans. Midway is selling blemished 130gr spbt for $33.99, Can't tell what brand though. Sportsmans sells Speer and Sierra 130gr spbt for$27.99. Both in 100rd packs. I'm sure there are good prices in there somewhere, just not for me

    Recieved 500, 150gr 30cal bullets yesterday. Appear to be Hornadys. All look perfect, consistently scaled in less than .5gr difference. Finish is perfect. Only thing is the are repacked in the Midway reusable boxes. Maybe they are returns, overruns or damged packages. Great deal overall.

    Might check into these. Does it only have cosmetic defect? I know they would not sell any that would be dangerous.

    When Sierra Bullets were in Whittier Ca. There "blems" were one or two hundred produced before or after (can't remember which) QC found a bad bullet. They had barrels filled with "blems". You could buy them by the pound. Ah, the good old days.

    Got some 7mm blems from Midway.

    They can't sell bullets that have a structural defect, only cosmetic.
