Product Information

ACME Bullet Company is proud to announce their NEW line of ACME+ coated bullets.   Coated in red, these are 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!!  Bullets feed well in automated bullet feeders.  Shoot higher velocities without lead fouling.  Can be shot through polygonal rifling.

The 38 158 SWC-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.

Consistent and no leading

By Matthew S. on Sep 08, 2023
I use these bullets for low power target loads in .357. They're pretty consistent in both weight and length. The coating is strong and I've experienced no leading in the rounds I've fired.
The base of the bullet has a generous chamfer, making it easy to seat with a minimal flare.

Good Stuff

Accurate-little or no leading. But them!

Uniform and easy to load

By Barry U. on Sep 23, 2020
I load these for both my 357 and 38 Special Revolvers. There is definitely less smoke than lead bullets with wax bullet lube in the grooves. They are uniform, load easily, and show consistent accuracy. They also come packaged in a nice wooden box.

Easy loading

Works and functions great. As accurate, at least from what I can tell, as any other bullet I’ve used. Would definitely use again.

Acme coated bullets

By Steven F. on Jan 04, 2019
I have loaded a couple of different brands for bullets for cowboy boy shooting, the Acme bullets are easy loading and very accurate. I use them for bullseye shooting as well.

coated lead

By Larry M. on Oct 29, 2018
I have used this lead on 3 different calibers and the accuracy is the same as copper plated. If it is better for the barrels, this is a plus. Price wise it is about the same as other bullets I buy. I will probably switch th these bullets for all my ammunition.
