9mm 125 grain round nose hardened bullets




I am looking for the best place to get lead 125 grain round nose hardened loads for 9mm to run through my 1911, Springfeild and Kimber. From what I have read they say to start out with what you are shooting and the go from there. Lead is a lot cheaper than FMJ and I can run it in my 2 pistols. Two site I have looked at are Handloads.com and Dardas Cast Bullets. has anyone purchased from either of these places?
Thank for any input. I am looking to buy 3000 to 4000 rounds.
Thank for the help
Bob

Casting my own would be the way to go , but I live in an apartment. So I need to build my bench solid so it is quiet. I am setting everything up in a bedroom. I am home all the time so the days I am not shooting I will be reloading. I have over 5000 pieces of bras that is all shot once by me. Now I may venture out and get a different caliber handgun instead of just 9mm. One step at a time. I have my money saved up and will b buying everything this month. I need to draw up some plans for a work bench for reloading and cleaning. This is another part of the hobby. Dillon id what I am going to buy except for a tumbler. I got a Cabala's. They had them on sale. I am wondering if I would of bought two??? I am shooting about 1000 rounds a week. Thant is shy I have so much brass. I was getting it for 10.10 a box for American Eagle at $220.00 a case. A little less than that. I need to find out if my FN Herstal FNP 9mm can shoot lead. or is it like a Crock I me Glock and you cannot shoot lead..
Any suggestions or help or input would be appreciated. As long as it is constructive and not I know everything about hand loading and you don't so you are a low life.... We come to these forum to learn and get help. I have a few good books and need more.
Thank you all very much.
Bob

Is your OAL range a typo? I thought 1.275 was the spec max.

edit: I didn't read carefully enough.

They are talking 9mm, not .45.

LRN 125gr cast bullets

Two Alpha Bullets always has pretty good prices on 9mm cast bullets.

If you want bullets that don't smoke much, you may want to try a moly coated bullet (black bullet). Precision Bullets offers these, but they are a compromise from cast vs. jacketed and run about $43/1000. A good price on FMJ bullets can be found with Delta Precision Bullets, which offer 9mm at $70/1000 which includes shipping.

Not sure how hard you are talking about.

Contact pennbullets as Weshoot2 suggested. Discuss your requirements
with Mr. Palermo. His std bullets may be hard enough. If not, he can
cook 'em extra hard, but they will be expensive.

www.pennbullets.com The standard 9mm rnbb will be more than adequate as I have run them thru full auto in sub guns with no problems. The best there is and he can put 3800 of them in one flat rate box for cheap shipping.

Hello xinnix,
I have had good results using Sundance bullets. They make 9mm in .356 and .357 diameters I have also used their .38 cal 130 g. .358 dia. bullets in a 9mm FN Hi Power. May want to slug the 9mm FN barrel as some late '80s guns can be .357.
Seems like they were about $50 a thousand. http://www.sundancebullets.com/bullets/index.php

One more thing-
Try HS-6 powder. Have had great results with 124 g. lead w/ 5.3g HS- 6.
