Check out www.westcoastbullet.com

They are full metal plated and depending on caliber, usually run less than $38/1000.

I use West Coast bullets a bunch, but they're not jacketed; they're plated.

I've been using T & T Reloading for all my bullet need for some time - they have their own "Star" line of jacketed bullets at reasonable prices.

Speaking of copper plated, has anybody reviewed or use the "copperized" lead bullets made by National Bullet Co?

The NBC "copperized" bullets are copper washed, not copper plated. They use a really soft lead, and will foul your barrel in a hurry. I'd go with West Coast or Berry's for plated bullets.

Montana Gold makes some nice jackted bullets at a reasonable price. You can buy them in lots of 2000 directly from Montana Gold or from Powder Valley in smaller lots.
