    Ones I find like the bottom are just painted lead and cut easy with a side cutters. I get a LOT of them that are 4oz+++ from the truck tires the co-op replaces.

    We had perfect conditions for it with a super wet summer... Will have to pick up something to treat it and see if any heirlooms varieties do better with it.

    Both of those are great choices, but I would go with a 7x57 Mauser, had one in this caliber and regret selling it. No recoil shooting factory ammo or handloads, shot flat and around 1&1/2 inch groups at 100yds!

    I have one in .223 and .243. They both had triggers that were a little gritty and broke at #4 or so. I could live with the triggers, as they both shot very well, with iron sights, out to 150yds. I did take the gun apart, and with a little judicious...
