    Gents,
    Does anyone have any experience here with the 14.5 JDJ? I have been flirting with the idea of getting one but I would like to hear from any experienced folks out there – good, bad, ugly, whatever. JDJ quoted me a projectile price of $3.25 a pop for the 1173gr beast, anyone have other sources for bullets? Brass you don’t have to fireform?

    Any insight or recommendations you can provide is most appreciated!

    ive got no experence with the 14.5 JDJ, but i do have some experence with the 14.5mm Soviet, and the bullet prices you listed aren't bad at all.
    compare prices a bit.....
