    Do any of you reloaders have a good place to purchase prelubed lead bullets?
    I want to buy some .252 dia. 230 grain .45 cal.
    I plan to use them for .45acp and .45 long colts. I would like to find a place somewhere in the north Texas area. Where do you Texas boys buy your lead bullets?

    Call some local shops. Sometimes shipping cost offsets the savings from getting them locally

    +1 I buy all my lead bullets at a local gun shop in Longview. I'm sure that there is a local shop near you that stocks them. My cost locally is lower than I can purchase them online. .44, .45, .38, and .357. They stock 9, .40, and .380 as well.

    I personally use Missouri cast and our own Matt Dardas.

    Both are priced equally and perform the same. And both are half the cost of laser cast.
