Acme Bullets

I’ve only been in the reloading side of the tracks for a little over a year. As all know locating inventory is sometime challenging. I tell folks it’s sorta like a scavenger hunt. My first order from Acme Bullet Company arrived today. I’m a sucker for stuff in wooden boxes! This packaging has me sold. 45 Colt and 45-70, 5 weeks shopping cart to door. I’m gonna need more of those neat boxes. They are reasonably priced considering they come full of bullets!

How does shipping cost compare to most suppliers who are using the priority mail boxes?

Last time I ordered from Acme, the wooden boxes were custom made to fit tight in a large flat rate box. So price was same since they were in flat rate boxes.

230gr RN ACME

I have used ACME bullets and I like their prices, availability, and how coated bullets keep the barrel clean. I also enjoy the sponsoring that ACME does at local gun clubs in SE WI - especially for the youth shooting sports!

I have a question for others who use ACME bullets:

What is the OAL length that you seat the bullets to when using 230gr RN ACME bullets for 45ACP?

I ask because the ogive they use prevents pistols that I have from going into battery unless I seat them deeper, to appox (going by memory this morning) something like 1.22" instead of 1.25" to 1.26".

I have 1911's from S&W, AO, and some others with EB barrels and they all have problems with ACME unless seated deeper.

I had the same issue ... I have to seat them at 1.215” to get a good “plunk” in my pistols (and revolver). They feed fine at that length.
