I tried them but my pistols didn't like them. However, I know a lot of people that swear by them.

They have pistol bullets in stock and ready to ship. Orders usually ship next day.

You can use code "Brent" for 5% off your order.

Now, can you do this for primers too?

I wish. I am down to my last 2000 small pistol primers.

I load Blue Bullets almost exclusively in .40 and 9mm. Extremely accurate in my pistols (TP9SFx). .40 is a different brand, of course...
Which bullets did you order? My Canik likes the 147's a lot; they've been extremely accurate. I am also going to try some 135's and see how they do.

Curious , I'm a new reloader............. Do you follow the load data for lead bullets when using these coated ones?

Use data for lead bullets, and lately you can find data for "coated" bullets. Either one works.

I love blue bullets. I use the 125gr RN in my SFX. However, if you just ordered them this past week, be prepared to wait a long time before they come in. Unlike most other vendors, blue bullet will take your order and then take 6 weeks, or more, to fulfill the order. If you have some change left, you may want to look at ordering some other bullets if you are looking to load soon.

I’ve loaded well over 100k blues. A combination of .40 and 9mm. They are a great local business to me that supports the competition shooter.

Personally, didn't like them, won't use them. The blue comes off on your fingers when loading. Other coated bullets I've used don't. Simple as that.
I like DG, H&S and Gallant coated.

But Gallant 125gr old style was my favorite, unfortunately they've changed the bullet shape so won't be buying any more.

The DG 125gr TC bullets are my new favorite.

Blue Bullets started washing their bullets as the final step in production in order to remove the blue residue you're talking about, so they don't make your fingers blue anymore. Load clean now. But those others you mentioned are good also, as well as Brazos. Good shooting!! Ben

Just a little FYI .....

I still haven't received this order yet , yes their website stated that it would be weeks before receiving your order , but this seems to be quite awhile. I emailed and asked about the order 2 weeks ago , they said I should have them by the end of October. The thing that bothers me the most about this order is that they charged me instantly for the product , but expect you to wait 2 months after being charged.

Apparently I need 25 replies before I can create my own posts so here is one. Sorry.

Whomever I am buying from, as soon as I receive an order, I order more. I've had 2000 RN 145gr 9mm coated bullets on order since mid-AUG. I've received two other orders since ordering those.

Georgia Brass and Ibejihead bullets only have a short delay in shipping right now. I really like the Georgia Brass 147gr 9mm flat-point bullets. They load well and shoot well. Coating doesn't peel while loading.

I've ordered and received 4 different orders from xtremebullets since I ordered those blie bullets. I wasn't in need of them , I just didn't like that they charged me right away , and I didn't get the product for over 2 months.
