Just want to put this out there. I just bought 4k jacketed bullets that RMR makes themselves in Idaho. Delivery was fast, and accuracy was equal to other FMJ's that I shoot (for $50 less per 4 thousand bullets). it was almost as cheap as buying plated (which they also do).
just do a google search for "Rocky Mountain Reloading".

I’ve used the 9MM RMR bullets for a while now (124 gr MPR, 124 flat point, old style 124 JHP and plated bullets). Each has been very accurate. I will most likely be using them for plinking and target shooting from now on since they are the best value I have been able to find to date.
I haven’t tested them for terminal performance yet but for casual shooting, I like them.

I think I will try a few of their 124 fp bullets as I have not been happy with what Extreme has been making lately. Lousy accuracy with the last 10K or so of their bullets I bought in handguns. Not even shooting worth a damn in my MP-5 or Colt 635.

I thought it was me or the gun, so I tried some other bullets and found that it was the Extreme bullets. I had some older Xtreme bullets and they were very accurate. I will have to try some Rocky Mountain bullets.

The Extreme plated bullets have been disappointing to me as well. They have not been very consistent. I've had better accuracy with Berry and Rainier plated bullets. I stopped buying plated bullets though after I started using RMR bullets since I would rather shoot jacketed 9mm than plated because I can load them in .357 Sig too.

I got better accuracy with Berrys as well. I have been thinking it was me and then I let a friend who is a very good shooter shoot 4 of my handguns and he was missing to the left and right at 10 yards like I was. Then he shot the MP-5 and was all over the place as well as the Colt 635. Then we shot Winchester white box 115 grain bullets and the groups were cut in half. I even tried 5 of my old standby powders in 9mm with these hullets and none of them are producing accurate loads with the extreme 124fp bullet.

I shot my S&W model 327JM today and I have not been shooting it well either. I shot a box of critical duty and at 10 yards every shot was in the center of the head, when I got out my loads with 158 extreme swc bullets I was all over the place.

Have been using their 45's in 230 RN & 9mm in124gr FN/CP for years with good results. Just this year started using the 124's in FMJ, same good results. Shipping is USPS and makes it to PHX in 2-3 days. And they go on sale! What more can you ask for!!! :D

What sort of accuracy?
2" at 50 yards or <3" at 10 yards?
Machine rest testing or simply free hand?
Have you tried Precision Delta?

I bought a couple thousand of the 124FP and loaded them up. They shot much better than the extremes and even better than the Berrys 124FP-HB bullets.

One full magazine group from my M&P CORE with a Vortex Venom 3MOA on it.

Target was at 10 yards
