    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.

    This reminds me of the troubles I had, when I accepted a cashiers check from the Royal Bank in Scotland...it was the strangest looking paper check, almost no words/writing on it, just a holographic symbol on one side and "Royal Bank in Scotland"...

    same can be said of about any cartridge. All have advantages and disadvantages. Take the 270 for instance. Its a big seller and why? Because some gun writers convinced the world that it was a game changer when in truth they were just trying to sell...

    mixing it with 70lbs wont get you 18bhn without water dropping but it will about put you in ww territory. Even at ww hardness if your gun is built right that alloy should shoot fine. 50lb mix might be closer.

    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...

    I don't know. I did order a 303 Brit expander for my 30-30 though. If your seater is built like mine, you can use the same top punch you size with as a seating plug. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk
