    I found some really odd ones that I had never seen before in this last batch. They were all plastic! At first I thought they were lead with a thick plastic coating to protect the wheel. But when I sawed all the way through one, I found it was ALL plastic. Some sort of a composite I suppose... plastic mixed with steel dust perhaps.

    Would cast zinc boolits be hard enough to damage a gun bore?? I am thinking/fearing that sooner or later we are going to have to find a cost friendly sub for lead...
