    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...

    Matt, I'm not sure that I understand the question, but the RCBS 145gr silhouette or Saeco 145gr. bullet, seated out to 2.465, is the max length in this barrel, without hitting the lands. Both have all of the lube grooves still in the case at that...
