Georgia Arms is good source. Although, with a google search you should turn up tons of suppliers.

Pretty sure Missouri Bullet Company makes .380 lead bullets. Good quality, fair prices. Good folks to deal with, too.

I don't have any cast .380 loads, but I use Unique and W231 in my jacketed and plated loads.

I use this 95 grain round nose from Missouri Bullet Company that others have mentioned.

I load them with 3.0 grains of Win 231. Works well.
