Missouri Bullets make those new coated bullets that are supposed to be as slick as snot in your barrel. Fella at work just bought a few thousand in 9mm 115gr. Anyone have any data on these little buggers or how-to knowledge?

They shoot just like plated, they're just coated instead of plating. Think powder coat. You have to use decent crimp or they can sit back, while feeding. That may be where you heard the slick comment from.

For pistol, just iron out the bell, with a firm taper crimp, adjust as needed.


They are an improvement, over the hard lube commercial casters use and it doesn't fall out, during shipping.

I think the whole bullet is powder coated, not just the lube grooves?

The whole bullet is coated, which is most useful trait is eliminating lube smoke and time lubing. Some claim similarly reduced fouling, like plated. Commercial casters select lube, first on cost, ease of use and if it'll hold up to transportation, to customer, then how it preforms or smokes.


I don't like plated, I can buy jacketed bullets, nearly as cheap, the coated hitech or powder) work better and are cheaper. Only down side, they require more attention reloading, because they're "slick" and will slip in case, IF you don't account for it.


Check out these, shipped prices, delta $170 for 2,000 115gr fmj and that's not a sale price and MBC $152 shipped price, to me penny a piece, isn't worth, not using jacketed. I use Delta's HP, for another penny over FMJ, for target preformence, these are not meant as defensive HPs, just work better on plates.

Agree the jacket are better and almost the same as plated and powder coated.

lots of guys  were doing powder coating their own.  It is messer, more $, and more time consuming then regular lubes.  But seems they don't perform any different that lube.  Most guys did it be casue they thought the bright colors were 'cool'...maybe even 'tacticol'.

They were 2k for 58 bucks 115 grain. I'll pass on the info and hopefully I can get some feedback on them. Fowling issues, loading, velocity gains or losses, etc. and post them up as I get word. My first concern was the fowling and removal of the fowling vs copper or lead, and also he uses an auto progressive press and was a bit worried about how well they would seat and if the lube would scrape off easily and throw accuracy off.

58 for the whole 2k. Seems the local supply house bought a few skids of them and are running a deal. 58 seemed like a good deal, but you know how some "good deals" work out. I err to the cautious side a bit especially when dealing with new materials and little data or literature available. I've used and still use 285 and 300 gr. plated bullets for my 50 with no complaints, but these are an entire different animal. If they work well he plans on soaking up a half of a skid or more as he and his wife are into the whole 3-gun ring. 2k of nine is an afternoon for them.

That FAQ page was worth reading. 

I just orderd some Blue Bullets. and just got them in. I haven't loaded them yet, but I will comment when I do. The reviews I read said "You will look like you have been j***ing off a smurf after loading them" I'll give details on that as well.

Well he loaded and used all of them on Saturday apparently. Says they were spot on with his pet load data and didn't notice any hiccups or variations to his process. Asked him about any speed variations and he hadn't bothered to run any over a chronie. Go figure. Also said his barrel was like it hadn't been fired. No visible buildup and his patch was barely dirty. Maybe it was a good deal? Think he's going for a skid this week and I asked him to test a few to post up. See how it goes this weekend for him.
