S N S Cast Bullets

I am thinking about ordering some bullets from S N S Bullets. Has anyone used these if so how did they work?

I've been happy with their bullets and service. You do know the bullets are 92 2 6 alloy and BHN 16, right? So you need to shoot them with enough pressure/velocity to avoid leading.

If you like them and want to buy more in the future, they do offer discounts at the 5K and 10K order quantities.

I ordered the 44mag lead bullets. Wish they had more than 1 lube band. Other than that they're fine. I incurred leading might be because I'm not hot rodding it and reloading powder puff loads.

I have had good results with their .45 and .380. Good prices, reasonable shipping turnaround and it's a family owned business. I also use Friendswood bullets but their turnaround is about 6-8 weeks.

I have loaded around 20-30 thousand of these bullets in 38, 357, 40, and 45
I only use S&S . they are top shelf. In the 45 I use 5.0grs of Bullseye, any primer with an oal of 1.25" This is the load Bill Wilson had in his book of the 45 APC

I have just punched out my second batch of 100 and the first 100 are deep in the dirt.

They loaded smooth for me without peeling. As far as leading, no different than any decent lead round I have ever purchased.

I currently have another 800 to load and I feel comfortable with the quality I have seen so far.
