This is good stuff. Their pistol ammo is premium stuff using mostly Gold Dot bullets at a reasonable price. Loaded hot.

Of course, I consider it better to reload one's own if at all possible, just for the independence factor. But I know not everyone can do this. For those who don't reload, this sounds pretty cool.

BTW, Mastercast Bullet Co. is shutting down the ammo-factory part of their business and concentrating on reloading components. This is due to Mr. and Mrs. Symbala (the proprietors) wanting to actually spend some quality time together--imagine that! :-)

They load everything really hot but the coolest part(did you catch that pun ;)) is that their prices are really reasonable IMO. A lot of the premo manufactures really jack up the prices.

Well...for me Georgia Arms is plinking ammo. Underwood is premium ammo. I read a test of Underwood ammo that stated it was the most consistant the author had ever tested.

If your gun's in good repair and is rated for those loads, then it doesn't hurt to give this ammo a try. Hot loads in a gun that likes 'em can be a lot of fun.

I still suggest that all shooters here consider reloading their own, though, just as a matter of principle. :-)

Shoot Cowboy, my .454 Casull already hurts with REGULAR loading... If I bumped that up, I'd have to have artillery coordinates!

But I think I will give them a try! I appreciate it.
