    where do I find aluminum roll for 44 mag?

    I tried using .014 Amerimax, but it doesn't stay / crimp because it's too thin. I tried on top powder coat still not satisfied. The bullet shank is .400 + .014 + .014 = .428 and I size to .430 so clearly I need thicker like min. .015 preferably .016. Anyone know where I can buy a roll in this size? I am aware of Yonky's Foil and Coil but I wanted to find something local or at least in US.

    Years ago, I bought some copper flashing at Menards. It measured .016 ...I don't recall what brand it was. I bought it for 30 cal GCs and it was too thick for 30 cal, so I got rid of it.

    ok, I am little desperate ))) but I needed to to test fit and this worked. I salvaged old CPU heatsink, it measures 15.6 thousands (.0156) thick, punches nicely and most important grips well. I still want to find a source of bigger roll. We don't have Menards in WA but I'll keep my eyes open for one when I travel.

    Is Yonky Foil&Cool still in business? I thought he posted awhile back, he was shutting down. Patmarlin is doing the same thing. He is feed up with dealing with power outages and the state of Komiefornia.
