Unhappy need a cast bullet company!

OK so I have tried contacting Tennessee Valley bullets every which way but loose. I am just assuming they are DOA DNR at this point. I need a decent bullet casting company for 45 colt 250 grain RNFP lead at a good price (I realize many are back-ordered/backlogged at this point.) And (here's the kicker) I don't want to pay $80+ per 500 for them. Actually it is more of a can't not a don't want to. ANYWAY. I found a company called Missouri Bullet Company, but I don't know anything about them. Before I start shimmying out on limbs to deal with companies, that I don't know from adam (old east Texas expression), does anybody have a good site they have done business with that is reasonable in this day and age for cast lead?

Thanks in advance!

Richard

Edited on 7-21-13 to add the following. TVB has contacted me a few weeks after I sent them a question on their facebook page asking me to call them. Apparently they are not defunct, they just don't have a working web page.

Also this issue has been SOLVED by Skeet, and Going Ballistic Bullet Company! Thanks guys!

GOB. I have a company I do business with here in my area. Actually they are in Montana. The name is going Ballistic bullet company. Prices are reasonable..or were a month or two back and they make good bullets. Try www.Goingballisticbullets.com Their prices from my last price sheet for the bullets you want are $52 per 500..plus shipping of course. They do make some good bullets. I do deal with them..but usually at gun shows. They were featured in Handloader mag a month or two back by Rick Jamieson I think. He didn't even have a copy so I lent him mine.. If that isn't the right web addy..google 'em

Skeet, that is perfect man you saved my day yet again! Looks like that is the correct page for a company that started in Oregon and is now in Lolo, Montana so I am assuming it is the right folks. Prices are right along what you said, and I will contact them ASAP!

Thanks again!

Richard

Ok Skeet, gotta ask. How does a guy your age have blond hair? Right now mine is short and brown however this time next year I will have a pony tail. And that only because the Commanding Officer issued a General Order against it.

Well BH.. Had blonde all my life It was so light when I was a kid some people thunk I was an albino..but no pink eyes..cept after a hard night of drinkin. I have a pony tail mainly cause i werked in a fire dept and couldn't have long hair beard or even a long handlebar mostache..I had onea them till we got our first air masks. All of a suddeen they wanted to protect us for some odd reason..'fore that is was who in heck cares?? We were expendable. Well as far as the commander..guess I just never got round to doin as I was told by her....less'n it was fer my own good. LOL Couldn't handle a beard..darn thing itched and it's red....and white. I have some white hair but my hair is so light it's hard to tell. My wife on the other hand..is all white. and I gave her ever one of 'em cept what my daughter gave her. I was proud of every one too..till she started makin me pay for all of 'em I gave her(and even the ones my daughter caused..it's always our fault ya know)..but she is an emergency room nurse..and they ain't got ANY kinda nice streak in 'em. No compassion whatsoever

Skeet you been dying your hair again?
No, really, thanks for the site, it solved a riddle for me. I have a fair supply of some bullets I have had for a long time and the labels came off. I had written 170gr on the plastic package cover with a magic marker but for the life of me could not remember what the devil they are, when I looked at the pictures on the site there they were; Veral Smith's 170gr 30cal LBT FNLB. I had bought 1m of them for testing in my 30cal Merrill barrels (30-30, 30-20, 30 Merrill) and never used them except for a few when I was writing an article about the 30-20 and 30 Carbine used to shoot steel with heavy bullets. I also used a few when I was working on a propitiatory 30cal revolver round. But due to CRS I just could not recall where they came from or what they were. That is a fine 30 cal bullet.
Thanks again.
Ed

Ed those fellows have some good bullets and they are making some of the old types of cast boolits. They still make my H&G 200 gr boolit..same design anyway. I still use my original H&G mould. I have some correspondence from Veral for a couple of moulds from many years ago..I also have one he made for me in 41 cal in heavy boolit mode..either a 260 or 280 gr..don't remember without going to look. One shot well and the other didn't do so well..so I sold it..kinda my design on both with his input..This was back when he was movin his business..many years ago.

We shot a few today to celebrate the fourth by recreating the revolutionary war with cowboy guns, and old canned goods for targets Looking forward to the new ones arriving so I can load up replacement stock!

BTW see if you can talk them into a discount. hope it was alright but I dropped your name as a reference and told them your recommendation was the reason I was ordering!

Thanks

Richard

Well we had a really hard T storm last night. Then a bit of rain that didn't end here at home till 2230. Now ya have to understand. We got an easy inch..in an area where we get 4-5 inches in a year..total. In fact we have already had more'n 6 inches fer the year. I know this doesn't compare to what y'all get in East Texas of whet Rapier gets in Florida.. but if'n it keeps up at this rate them mountains are gonna be melted down to molehills in short order. I built a dam of sorts in one of the gullys that comes through the cliff behind the house.. Gonna go see if I got any free water..

Don't blame you on the water, always better to have a bit extra standing around. Down here we are actually about a foot short on rainfall for the year so far, and the piddlin drizzle we got last night didn't help none.

Well I won't say they charged more because I mentioned ya, but they sure hadn't brought up shippin and handlin till I did
