    Our local Bi-mart had the CCI A-17 stuff on sale for $29.99 per 200. Cheapest I've seen it anywhere. Am thinking that the ammo companies would be wise to offer a low velocity version of this round. This is what's needed to prevent excessive meat...

    Drilling a hole or cutting a slot is actually very simple.. It's just setting up that dang uncooperative machine to put the hole and slot in the right place is what takes the time.
