    My 2 I would think that a thicker GC would be best if installed on a boolit with a smaller GC shank. If you were to size/crimp a thick GC onto a boolit with a GC shank that is the proper size for a proper thickness of GC, then I suspect you...

    I have never noticed any issues with Lead and Lead alloy availability. with that said, Lead is a commodity and is (and always has been) subject to price rise and fall...but for our hobby purposes, those price changes are negligible.

    Not sure if Im missing part of the post or something, but if it is a self defense scenario be sure to be the first one to call. If capable your attacker will call 911 and make you out to be the aggressor. Best to have your 911 call in first and...
