Magnus or zero.  Cost or swaged.

+1 on above. I have used both and they are excellent. I tend to use the Magnus because he is a sponsor here and will give you a discount for being a member of this forum. Very nice of him to support us in this fashion imho.

I use the Magnus bullets as well. Great consistency and excellent performance.

Wobbly: you may have the same problem typing cast and ending up with "cost" as I do.

Best plain-base bullet is the RCBS 452-201-SWC--particularly if you cast it yourself using 9-12 BHN alloy.
Best commercial bullets I have found are the Zero 200gn swaged L-SWC and the Precision Bullet 200gn swaged and coated L-SWC.
I have not tested Magnus, but would expect it to be excellent.
Swaged are simply more consistent in terms of weight and dimensions, but obviously cast can be just as great.

Another vote for magnus. They are good folks, quality bullets and support not only this site, they travel and shoot BE all over the southeast almost every weekend.

I like Terry a lot. But others to consider as well is CJN casting and Penn. Personally I think CJN makes the best HG 68 SWC in 200 and 185 gn. Penn is good but CJN is a little better. 

I think the CJN and PENN is better than Zero's Swagged 200gn. 

Now Terry's HPSWC is as good as ZERO.

And I KNOW that the Zero swaged and Precision Bullet's swaged and coated are more accurate in my .45s than Penn's (have no experience with CJN). I would assume you have actually tested them so you should know which are best in your guns. Guns vary.
