Try finding some 165gr SSTs. I get an E-MAIL from Willams Gunsight that a new load of bullets came in, I rush over and there isnt crap on the shelves.

Damn you should have heard me bitch at them. Every one heard me, I also let them know there not off the hook with me, Where is the powder? not one damned pound that is compatable with accuracy in a 3006!

I'll walk out to my storage container and look to see if I got any 165 SST's. If I do I'll PM you.

They have a miserable website. Almost as bad as Wideners, but not quite.

Is bullet casting something I should consider getting into? I mostly reload for rifle and long distance accuracy. I don't know anything about making bullets. It seems to me that is one of the most important things to get perfect if you want good results and tight accuracy.

Not really. Cast lead bullets are primarily for handguns and short range stuff. No way could a cast bullet achieve the BC or shape required for longer range shooting.

We shoot a lot of handguns and short range stuff so casting pills is a viable way to offset the cost of factory made projectiles.

Besides, it's fun. We use a propane burner to heat the pot and wheel weights for material.

Mostly WC and SWC bullets.
