Bullet suppliers - cost / quality your opinions

I want to buy 9mm and .40 s&W bullets for plinking and range shooting. For both I want FMJ not plated or cast. I'm looking for lowest cost at the best quality. I plan to buy 2,000 to 4,000 each and want something I won't be sorry for buying later.

I've researched on the web and think I know who the major mfg are, but don't want to list them because I don't want to influence any one's opinion.

If you were going to spend a good sum of money on these bullets what would your choice be?

I would go with Zero because you can save some money ordering them by the thousands.

(I'd also suggest not to get caught up in bullet brands too much, sooner or later it's only going to keep you from shooting)
New gun, same ol' shot.

I have used Precision Delta with very good success. Montana Gold also has a lot of favorable comments. They seem to be about the same in price.

I'm very happy with Montana Gold bullets.

Zero bullets through Roze distribution are great. Powdervalley and CZ Custom sell them also. MG's are good too but a bit more expensive.

Can't see going wrong with either DP or MG. Both are good people.
