I want to share a place that I found that had great prices and good service.
I was looking for .357 140 grain JHP bullets at decent prices. I used to use the Speer hot core bullets but they no longer make them. Sierra makes a good bullet in this size but it is getting real expensive. Hornady has one that I have not yet tested and the reviews are good.
After a few hours of searching I found Everglades Ammo based in Florida They have a great price and excellent service. I goofed up on my order by missing a letter in the email address and when I sent an email to them they corrected my email and sent me the tracking information and receipt for my order. In spite of my mistake the order was delivered a day ahead of the schedule. I let them know how happy I was with their prices and service and now I am letting you all know! Sorry, the folks out of the country they don't export but for the guys in the USA this may be a good resource for you.

The 357 is one pistol bullet that I don't use cast or plated bullets for. The cast and plated bullets just don't perform at the velocities from my 357 magnum or from the 357 Maximum.
I know most people don't use the 149 grain bullets but the good prices are not limited to those bullets. it might save you a few dollars over any other place. Check it out!

In the course of organizing my loading room, I discovered that I was nearly out of a specific bullet I rely on...as in only 3 left! I started shopping around in my usual places and remembered a post on a different forum about Blue Collar Reloading and thought I would look there too. I was pleasantly surprised to find that their prices for the bullets I wanted were $4 a box less than my usual "go to" site. I placed an order and two business days later (excluding two weekend days) the bullets arrived. In that time period, I received four emails - 1 confirmation, 1 shipped notification, 1 "Thank you" and a final one stating that the order had been delivered! THAT is follow-up. The bullets were packed as if they were the Crown Jewels with dense foam blocks taking up any voids and providing complete isolation from the sides of the shipping box. A drop from a third floor window wouldn't have damaged them!

Their site, to be honest, can be a bit difficult to navigate and organization isn't the easiest to sort through with drop-down boxes that seemingly go nowhere, but the site is admittedly a work in progress. Over all, it would be worth your time to check them out - plus they are veteran owned an operated. I'll certainly be a return customer.

Been using Remington 140 grain SJHP's for my .357's and .38 specials for years.

Bushy,
Where do you get the Remington bullets?

I was getting them from Midway until they pissed me off with their shipping "extra" cost.
