Frequently Asked Questions





  • Can I order bullets directly from Bart's Custom Bullets?

Yes you can just Email ( or call (270-879-4279) and let me know what you would like.  If it's an email please provide an address that UPS can deliver to and a phone number that you can be contacted at. Our website also has a handy order form you can use.



  • What is the cost of bullets?

Currently $245.00 per 1000 or $130.00 per 500.



  • What is the cost of shipping?

Shipping within the USA is about 12.00 to 13.00 dollars for 500 bullets and around 15.00 dollars for a 1000. UPS gives a pretty good break for volume. The more bullets we ship at one time the less it costs.



  • Is there a minimum amount that I can order?

Yes, the smallest quantities we sell are boxes of 500.



  • Why is 500 bullets the minimum order? Why can't I just get a 100 to see if my rifle likes them?

Well here is why... I do this because I want the shooter to tune the bullet to their rifle. A normal shooter who buys 100 or 200 bullets (I'm not saying you would do this) usually doesn't even adjust his bullet seating die. They go to the range and put in the same powder load and the same setting depth of whatever bullet they were shooting and let them fly! If they get lucky and it works, then I make a good bullet; if they don't do well, then I a poor bullet maker. 

Friends, let me tell you something...I shoot a lot, and not to blow my horn, but I have a pretty good bit of experience in tuning a rifle. I myself am not comfortable trying to tune a gun with only a 100 rounds. It is amazing how a rifle can come to life by tweaking the seating depth and varying the powder charge a little. 

Also for the sake of argument, lets just say that you did get the rifle tuned in 50 shots, and its shooting like never before...well you are almost out of bullets and now you need more. I normally have a 3 to 4 week wait for bullets. 

If you think buying 500 bullets is too big of an investment on something that you don't know will work, don't worry... I'll be glad to exchange them for one of my other 6mm bullets (Headhunter, Predator, Ultra, Wedge, Original, Watson or Zia ) or just refund your money in full. I'll work with you until you are happy or satisfied...whichever comes first. There is no better guarantee in the business!



  • How do I pay for bullets?

Normally, we just ship your bullets once they are ready. Inside the box will be an invoice. Just send us a check once you have them (personal checks are fine, no need for money orders).  Yes this is unheard of now-a-days, but I have a lot of faith and trust in shooters. I have sold bullets all over the country for several years and have never had anyone not pay. 

You may also pay by credit card if you like.  Just give us a call at 270-879-4279 with your card information.



  • What do you have in stock?

Almost always "nothing"...we're not that kind of bullet maker. Our goal is to produce the best bullets in the world. To do that you have to have great equipment and procedures, but most of all they have to be made one at a time by hand. It takes a great deal of time and effort just to produce 1000 bullets.



  • How long do I have to wait until my order is shipped?

When you place your order, I'll give you an expected ship date. However, you can typically expect to 3 to 4 weeks, but it can be longer.  It really depends on what is going on in the shooting world. For example, prior to the big matches like the Super Shoot or Nationals it is all I can do to get bullets ready for shooters needing them for the match. So, I almost have to shut down and focus on those orders.

As a general rule the spring time and summer months are the busiest which result in slightly longer wait times.

The best plan is to order ahead of time. A 6 week lead time is excellent.



  • Can I get bullets faster?

Give me a call and we can try to find a dealer that either has them or is next in line to get a shipment of bullets.



  • Which bullet do you recommend?

That depends on what type of barrel and reamer you are need give me a call or send an email with the particulars of your rifle. Then I can probably steer you in the right direction.



  • What reamer works best for your bullets?

Time has shown that our bullets work well with a wide variety of reamers. However I prefer a .045 freebore with a trim length of 1.515.
