One discount bullet I can recommend as being uniform is the 124 gr. JHP made and sold by RMR.
I concur, I took delivery of 3 boxes of those last week! ;-)

New to reloading as a matter fact Ive yet to reload any ammo. I purchased some 115gr round nose TMJ .355 projectiles but when I received them I weighed them an they don’t weigh 115gr their actually 113gr and as far as base measurement it’s not .355 either more like .352, .353 some are not even perfectly round at the base since I take one measurement and get .353 spin the projectile some and remeasure and get .357 so am I screwed or can these be salvaged by a Lee resizing die? Thanks in advance.
I've never had them that far off- I would send them back. You will have more trouble with the case gauge from the egg shaped ones. I had some poorly cast projectiles one time and they constantly hung up in the gauge, wouldn't seat squarely and generally shot poor. A few grains will not change anything in handgun bullets but being .003" undersized is a lot. That's enough to lower neck tension to the point that setback could be an issue. You'll be chasing inconsistent issues that vary by the round.

It's not the way you want to begin your loading career.
