.45 acp bulk bullets for reloading

I am looking for bulk .230gr jacketed bullets, in .45acp ( 500 cnt) for reloading. I would like to find a good place to deal with. Any suggestions?

Montana Gold - and you can go direct - but a case of .45 acp 230gr either CMJ or FMJ are 2,000 bullets per case. But I would highly recommend their bullets.

Does it have to be jacketed? Have you tried Rainier plated bullets, I have had very good luck with them. I do 40 S&W and get 1,000 165 grainers shipped from MidwayUSA for $122.

For sure, there are plenty of reasons to go with full FMJ over lead bullets, but unless you've tried them or are sure you can't or don't want to use them, you'd be goofy for not giving cast lead a try.

The last time I bought 500 lead 200 grain SWC's for .45, I think they cost me $35. More now, due to the price of lead, but still much cheaper than any plated or jacketed bullets and DAMN do they shoot well!

Powder Valley offers Zero brand jacketed bullets, those are probably a decent price.

I also like the Zero bullets.

That being said, I mostly shoot the Precision Molly coated 200 gr LSWC from the other Precision company.

Montana Gold in Kalispell, Montana

I've used Rainier Ballistics as well - but you'll find their bullets will vary a lot on weight ( like + - 5 grains easily on a 230 grain bullet ). Although I think the Rainier 230gr RN bullet in .45 acp is fair - you'll get much better groups and more consistent cartridges with Montana Gold.

The indoor ranges I shoot in primarily - don't allow any unjacketed bullets.
