Where to buy 38/357 Bullets

Where is a cheap place to buy some 38/357 110-125Gr HP bullets. I normaly shoot plated bullets but want some cheap hunting rounds

Hunting what? 110-125's are awful light for anything bigger'n varmints; and the 357 is low enough on the power scale that anything bigger deserves a quality bullet. XTPs or Golddots are not that much more expensive unless you're gonna shoot a grillion of them.

Rats, Possum, Porcupine and raccoon and other critters in this range.
The 110 and 125 Gr loads have done an excellent job of desposing all vermin in this weight range quite effectively. In fact I have taken a couple coyotes and deer with these loads. I would prefer a heaver bullet on the deer but it was all I had at the time.
AS far as putting out the extra $ for XTP and Golddots, for small game like this, they dont even have a chance to open up, also I do shoot alot of this type of bullets, practice makes for perfect, ya know.

I go through 400-700 a month.

Yeah, in that case, tony, I agree with steve. You can get a bundle of remingtyons quite inexpensively at Midway. They're accurate, too.

Take a look at Cabella's --- they charge shipping my the dollar amount and not the weight. That can make a big difference when ordering lead.
