A recent thread on AR15.com discussed some fairly cheap frangible bullets being sold by Midway. It sounded like a good deal on some bullets, so I placed an order for 2,000. The bullets I got were listed as:
“Remington CTF Frangible Bullets, 357 Sig/ 9mm (.355 Diameter) 100 grain Flat Nose Box of 500 (Bulk Packaged).”
I ordered 4 boxes, and with shipping, paid $97.61. That worked out to 4.8 cents per round, a great price.
I had not reloaded any yet, but my good friend Journeyman1 told me he had tried to load some bulk bullets recently and they were undersized and just “fell” into a resized 9mm case. I got to thinking about that and wondered if my bullets were the right size. One way to find out... Get out the micrometer.
