Xtreme bullets?

This is a discussion on Xtreme bullets? within the MP Reloading forums, part of the Smith & Wesson MP Forum category; I just ordered 1000 115 grain round nose for my 9mms. Probably too late to be asking but the pricing was good. Anybody using these ...

Xtreme bullets?

I just ordered 1000 115 grain round nose for my 9mms. Probably too late to be asking but the pricing was good.
Anybody using these care to give an opinion as to the quality?

I bought 1,000 XTreme 115 gr RN 9mm a few months ago, I ordered another 1,000 during their July 4th promotion, I'm quite satisfied with them and their prices are pretty darn competitive.

I have been using Xtreme 124 for 9mm and in .40 cal 180's both in FP. Have found them clean and accurate in both calibers.

good luck...

Xs are copper plated, as are Ranier and Berrys... Nothing new, and nothing bad. Ive been shooting Berrys since I get them local but wouldnt hesitate to run X or Rain either.

Ive not had any problems with copper plated bullets to date.

My blue bullets do leave some lead fouling so Im switching BACK to copper plated.

True FMJ is what Id like to load but Im always so tight on money (hence the blue bullet experiment).

Everglades has both plated and true FMJ, I want to buy from them in the near future.

Another Xtreme user here. I saw that they have their own line of primers now, as well. Are these truly theirs or private labled CCI?

Primers are a very technical thing to make, they really need experienced people making them, I would say with at least 99% probability that some experienced primer maker is making them and putting their name on them. If you buy enough of just about anything you can put any name you want on a product, quality depends on who is making them, I don't have a clue and most companies that get stuff for private label won't disclose who they get them from, they might be from a major American maker, or maybe Wolf or Tula, if you ever see a box, look to see if is says Made in USA or somewhere else.

Many years ago I was in the furniture business, a friend who was the rep for a mattress manufacturer told me about how I could have my own brand of mattresses. Mattresses are easy to private label since the corner labels are usually ironed on, so...if I bought the labels, they would put my label on any quantity of mattresses, if I bought 100 or more they would furnish the label and put any name I wanted on them, same thing applies for most any product, only the quantities might vary. Primers usually come in simple cardboard packaging, so it wouldn't cost very much to have those printed with any name you might want, so you might order 100 cases and get your own name printed right on the box!

Everglades seems to be a good deal.

Their jacketed 9mm prices range from comparable to a little lower than what I get from Precision Delta, but Everglades offers free shipping.

Good deal, thanks!

Prefer FMJ but...

both Xtreme & Berry's plated work well with my .223 & 9mm.

I'm a fan of XTreme bullets. I used to get them from TJ Conevera a few years ago and have since just switched to buying them direct. They've been a pretty consistent performer for me in both 9mm and 45ACP.

I haven't loaded any yet but was impressed with their quick delivery. Also pleasantly suprised when they include a few extra HP's for me to try.

Another xtreme fan here. Have loaded 1000s of rounds of .45 and just started loading the 115gr RN and 125gr FP. All have been great for the money. Keep an eye out for their free shipping events and they are one of the best deals going on plated bullets. Wish they would step into .500 S&W so I could really save some $$.
