Product Information

ACME Bullet Company is proud to announce the 38 148 Button Nose Wadcutter Non-Lube Groove Hi-Tek Coated bullet.  Coated in red and nicknamed our "Lipstick" rounds.  Give your next target a lasting KISS.

These lead cast bullets are made from 92-6-2 alloy and are then coated in HiTek coating.  The benefits to shooting are numerous and include:  The coating molecularly bonds to the bullet totally encapsulating it.  Coating prevents lead to bore contact.  Less smoke as associated with traditional lubed bullets.  Range Friendly and these bullets feed well in automated bullet feeders.  Shoot higher velocities without lead fouling.  Can be shot through polygonal rifling.

The 38 148 BNWC-NLG is a non-lube groove bullet thus has a longer driving band creating greater accuracy during the firing process.

Sized to .358

This is not loaded ammunition.

Acme WC

Great bullets, price is good and shipping is fast

Acme has been one of my goto's for coated, however this latest order from Grafs the coating seems thinner/less durable. I am noticing wear spots on the 148 BNWC's after running through the MBF. Appears turning in the MBF hopper is nocking the coating down on the edges, which I haven't seen in previous orders. So not sure if I got a bad batch, or if the squared off profile (vs having an ogive like a traditional 158SWC, or any typical 9mm/10mm/45 bullet, etc) is causing the wear. But I will stick to 158's going forward I think.

Great price on these great bullets, Can reload .38sp for under $10.00 a box if you have your own brass. Will buy more.

Very accurate

Bought a bunch of these to shoot in my .38 snubbies. They work great, accurate, and punch nice round holes in the target. Cleanup after was a breeze.
