124gr hollow points?
« on: January 11, 2019, 07:46:12 PM »
Can anyone tell me who they think the bullet manufacturer of these "blems" are?  I looked, but can't tell.

Thanks.

They deal with a number of folks like Speer and Hornady I get good "blems" from them all the time.

For that price ($.14/bullet), I’d rather buy Precision Delta’s JHP for $.09/bullet if you buy a package of 2000 bullets or $.11/bullet for a package of 1000. It’s not blemished and free shipping too.

Note: RMR also ships free

Seemed like a smooth addendum to me.  :)

Those look like gold dots.  Here is a picture from my stock.

I was going to suggest RMR blems, but at 14 cents per, I think Tdogg must be right. The concave base sort of proves it if the price didn't. Speer Gold Dots they are.

Thanks guys, they sure do look like Gold Dots, but you're right, looks like Precicion Delta's are a no brainer.

Thanks for the help.

If I had known how much better being retired is than working I would have done it FIRST.

Just wondering why not the RMR 124 gr. hollow points at $99 per 1K?

https://www.rmrbullets.com/shop/rmr-in-house/9mm-124-gr-rmr-jacketed-hollow-point-multi-purpose-round-bullets-new/

I haven't tried those myself.  I have seen mixed reviews on performance, and some people have not liked how short they need to be loaded for CZs, though I have no qualms about that myself.

I doubt their nice new machines are producing poor bullets, so I still want to try them. 

As far as recommending to others, however, there are no reservations with PD.

Don't get me wrong. I believe RMR is one of the better companies in the arms business, AND one of the best bullet makers out there.

• However, they've adopted a blunt ogive design for their made-in-house bullets that has to be loaded around 1.050-1.060 in the 9mm CZ. That goes for their plated and jacketed.

• Secondly, Precision Delta will sell their bullets at $89/1000 when you buy 2000. Both PD and RMR ship FREE at volumes of 2000, so that's a fair comparison.

So you can save a little money and load at a slightly more realistic OAL with PD.

I just finished loading 1000 of the RMR 124gr HP bullets and have shot about 400 at the range and during a match. I don't know if they have modified the shape but they do call them new.
I have plunked and shot  these to 1.100 in a CZ75BD, CZ P-07,CZ P-10C and a Glock 19.

They plunk easily and fall out. They load and eject with no problems. I settled on 1.095 just to give a little cushion in different guns but I was never able to load these this long before.
