I should know in acouple of weeks says takes 7 days to ship and 4 day max to get here. I plan on loading at least 50 to test out when I get them. I will post up some photos. Of the heads when I get them and the target photos after I range test them.

If you've ever cast your own, you know the labor involved. It's pretty hard to beat a commercial caster, unless their product is total junk.
That said, I had a box of cast bullets from the outfit in Brattleboro that was not up to par. Must have been a new guy on the job. The round nose was flattened and had marks like they'd been sized in a vise. The bullets were warped, as well. For the cost it wasn't worth the trip back to AGW in Goshen to complain, but I will tell and show them next trip up there.
I'd say try them and they'll likely do the job. Just try and make them yourself for what they charge...
My biggest regret is that most commercial casters don't offer much for rifle shooters. Yes, I realize there's much more demand and a bigger market for 9mm and .38 than there is for 6.5mm, 7mm and 8mm...

Let me know about the quality of the product. Like CT6. I've seen some stuff of dubious quality and that was one reason I stuck to jacketed bullets, but for the price, if quality isn't sacrificed, that's a tough deal to pass by. Thanks!

Well i received my order today. I was 27 bullets short and 9 without the blue band. I sent them a email they are mailing me out 100 free of charge. They did make good but i shouldn't have had to go thru this. I know it a pain counting but this was my first purchase so far not impressed. Lets see how they shoot.

Don't get too upset over missing lube. As cast bullets hang around and get handled, it's not uncommon to have the lube break from the lube grooves. Yes, you'll want to have the lube intact, but this condition isn't uniquely rare by any stretch.

Can always resort to something like this...

What caliber did you order from them? The 9mm I got were flawless. Sorry you had a bad experience but the sheer cost makes up for it though.

I ordered 200gr SWC 45acp. Honestly in these times I can see mistakes being made to ship stuff out as quick as possible

After I see how they cycle and fire that would make my mind up. Seeing they had no issue sending me extra since I was shorted I know they at least have good customer service
