Who makes this bullet?

Recommended Posts

Does this bullet look familiar to you?  Who makes it?  It's a 9mm, 125 gr JHP.  The one on the right is of the base of the bullet.

Isn't the HAP base flat & flush?

While it seems familiar, nothing "clicks".  Do you have more information?  How old?  I expect you are saying it is a reload.

Doesn't zero have a new hap style bullet? Haven't seen the base of the zero bullets so can't say for sure.

Looks very much like the Zero 125 grain competition bullet....

Zero, precision delta, or hornady. I’m a 115gr guy so couldn’t say for certain but I’d guess Roze distribution is who should google if you want some. Or precision delta.... hornady is way to proud of their Bullets if you shoot many at all.

Seems strange that a JHP would have a two- piece

base  ??   

 

That's one of the advantages of JHP's is that they're

manufactured from one piece that also covers the base.

Zeros look like that.  It's not a Hornady, they have flat bases.  Precision Delta's have skives on their JHP bullet nose.

 

Therefore, most likely a Zero.

The base isn't two piece.  It's hard to see in the photo.  

I'll check out the Zero bullets.  That sounds like the best guess.

I'm 99.9% sure It's the bullet Everglades sales as their "competition style" 125gr.  

The base is what we call a stepped base. It is not a two piece jacket.  PD also uses this style base punch. 

 

PD produced a bullet almost identical to this for a short time earlier this year, and there are some out there in the wild. However, it has since been re-designed and will be available soon.

Looked at the everglades and it does have the impression in the bottom. Guessing it is when it is sized and the jacket is smashed on and pressed out or in the mold.

Everglades has declined to identify who makes some of the bullets they sell. I asked specifically about their 9mm 147 JHP, which looks identical to the Zero bullet. They replied that they do not release manufacturer information on unbranded bullets. The OP's pictures look exactly like Zero's bullets. If they're not made by Zero, then someone is making bullets that look like Zeros.

For the most part. 

The "base punch" is ground with a step on it. When the punch forces the bullet into the forming die, the profile ground on the punch gets transferred to the base of the bullet.

It sure looks like the Everglades bullet.  The picture on the Rose Distributing site of the Zero bullet looks like the front of the bullet is more rounded and has skives around the hollow point.

Will it be priced the same as the 124 Jhp .

Zero makes 2 different 9mm JHP bullets.

 

One is a RN-HP and has skives. 

http://www.rozedist.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=RZD&Product_Code=R162-A&Category_Code=ZBJ-9MM

 

The other is a conical shape with no skives.

http://www.rozedist.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=RZD&Product_Code=R136-A&Category_Code=ZBJ-9MM

 

The bullets in your first post are like Zero's conical with no skives.  I have several thousand of both types within inches of where i'm sitting right now. 

 

Here is a picture of my Zero 125 JHP-conical bullets:
