    Warning: Information on the interwebs can often contradict itself I like to size my boolits to "about" .001 over throat size...sometimes it works out successfully.

    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.

    I didn't really modify one. Mine is a old used Dake (made in USA) that I got at a scrap iron yard, I cleaned it up and since it came without a Anvil plate, I made a custom Anvil from two 3/8 steel plates, to hold a FCIII gas check die.

    I totally agree. and I'll add, a deformed boolit will still be accurate enough at short range. But once you start shooting past 25 yards the poor accuracy will be obvious.
