Source of 9mm and 40cal ammo with coated lead bullets

Wife and I usual shoot Freedom Munitions new and reman FMJ/RNFP ammo. We have access to a cowboy range that has a 22lr falling plates section and four other bays set up for the cowboy activity. As it turns out we could use our M&Ps with lead or coated lead bullets. I would much prefer the coated version. Any suggestions for a source?

Over the next month I'll get going with reloading at which point I can buy the coated bullets, but in the interim (and not knowing how quickly I'll get up the reloading learning curve) I'd like to put in a supply that can be used at this range.

Do you have a press? I just bought one today. Hornady classic single stage. Keep us posted when you start reloading I enjoy following your threads because you keep pretty active.

Not sure about where you will get your source of bullets. My state makes you feel like a smuggler getting anything gun related shipped to you.

Just order 9 and 10 mm coated fishing sinkers in a weight of your choosing.

OBE - I've started reloading. While WSF is not ideal for 9mm the reloads are working out ok so far. Biggest challenge is my makeshift steel target stands which tend to rotate in this soft ground. It would be better if my wife were not so accurate (or were more accurate so as to hit them dead center). I'll be mostly reloading 9mm since we're buying a pair of 9mm 1911s. We'll still give our M&Ps some love, however, but there is essentially no capacity advantage in CA: 9mm 1911 holds 9 rounds stock with 10 rnd mags available; our M&Ps have 10 rnd mags if you can get the 10th round in the mag.
