You need to try hi-tekI shoot powder coated bullets in both pistols and rifles with great results. I do my own with a Harbor Freight spray gun and a cheap toaster oven. I have not tried Hi-Tec.
There's a bunch of coupon codes floating around to get 5% off which helps. I bought one of their jerseys/patch to qualify for their sponsorship program so they give 10% off which is nice. They're significantly cheaper than berry's, for me anyway. I think my last order was 6 cents per bullet. Not bad.A quick check of 9mm shows that Berry's is only $10/K more than Blue Bullet. I recall a similar not-too-large difference back in the day. (I actually think I used Copper coated for 45 and polymer-coated for 40.)
