Extreme plated 45acp price increase

I went to order some 230gr 45acp plated bullets from Xtreme and the price was 68.50 for 500. This seems like an increase from what I can remember. I was thinking I paid around $45 or $50 the last time I bought from them (June 2016).

Does anyone know if the prices have gone up recently

I guess it's time for you to start casting your own bullets.

That sort of things we Experiment here in Southamerica as well so about a year back I started gathering reloading Equipment and supplies and by now I am about Independent with my ammo.

I do not shoot a lot but ammo Independence is worth over here very much. Lead is plenty availlable.

X-treme's prices have gone up a little bit, but not much. I bought a big batch of .45acp in January 2016, and I paid about $60 for 500 of the 230 gr.

I was recently turned on to a company called Badman Bullets... mainly interested in the polymer coated bullets. The pricing is close enough to X-treme... does anyone have any feedback to offer on these?

Over here in Southamerica you will pay about 110$ for 500 115 grain FMJ 9mm bullets.
If you can fond them.
