BUY cast boolits? Who me? The guy that has thousands in the garage just waiting to be sized and lubed? Nope not me.

Sorry, I have never used Bear creek boolits.

I've got a couple or three boxes of BC bullets from before I became a caster. Some of the local gun shops stock them regularly. The 38 specials SWC's someone gave me didn't work for either of us, the 32-40's haven't been tried except as plinkers (in 32 Special), but the Saeco 322's worked very well for me in my Marlin 1894CL in 32-20. Just as well as my own cast versions of this same bullet, and this despite being beat around in a box with 499 other bullets. The moly lube worked fine too, although now I'm hearing bad things about it - hard to get out of the bore, apparently. Didn't bother me any. Stan
