Dardas Cast Bullets

About 10 years ago, when I started going through cast bullets, I was a big Oregon Trail fan. Now that those have doubled in price, I have switched to Dardas bullets, and I have to say, they're great. If you all need a good cast bullet, try them out. My Blackhawk and S&W 637 both love the .359 150 SWC and 148 DEWCBB. The shipping is cheap and the prices are more than reasonable. I can get about twice as many bullets for my dollar with Dardas, and they're accurate. I haven't killed anything with them yet, but they seem to hold up well through wood, etc. and not deform too bad.

I really like how he offers different sizes. It is necessary to use the correct size for your particular gun, yet many suppliers don't offer different sizes. I have a couple thousand from him that I'll be trying out in the next couple weeks. I also wish he'd get a mold for .475/.480 bullets.

My most accurate load so far for my .40S&W Glocks is with a Dardas lead bullet (Lone Wolf barrel).
