RMR sometimes sells seconds at a reduced price. They always note the fact. I've had no issues with their thick plated first quality or seconds. I did buy a batch of "thirds" once that noted it would have some pulled FMJ 230s mixed in. I don't think I'll do that again. I prefer the plated bullets for my purposes. The FMJs "felt" different when seating and I would rather everything feel consistent when I'm pulling the reloading press lever. They all shot just fine so no worries with the product.
For 45 target/plinking, I only load FMJ in 230 gns. (I also load SD XTPs). I buy all my FMJ in bulk, 500 or more at a time from the major online retailers. Almost always I get them on sale, free shipping, etc.
All of the above are good. For coated I have been buying from SNS for the last year or so, and lots of plain lead from them for many years. Xtreme and RMR (Rocky Mountain Reloading) seem to be the same bullets and are excellent heavily plated bullets. You might also consider Montana Gold for JHP and jacketed bullets for range work as they also have a very good reputation for accuracy and consistency.
