    Were are you sourcing these bullets I have tried every were and no body stocks them. Hornady .510 50 CAL 750 GR A-MAX. ( Advanced Match Accuracy ) with a copper jacket, aluminum tip and a lead core. Failing that can you recomend a full jacketed bullet. Im not keen on the A max for this particular purpose. All though I use them all the time in 6.5x55 and .308 with good results on the range.

    I replied earlier......sportsman guns have them 155 for 20, I think that's why they have them.....I bought some Lapau bullets, 55 for 20 fmj from Wilson and Wilson, but with the pending ban on large caliber/energy bullets few people are carrying stock
    I only open my mouth...to change feet...

    No way I’d pay prices like that unless I had firm orders for all the pens. I have a metal lathe so for the odd one off it would be easy to turn a bullet from some bronze rod. Not difficult to add the alloy tip but I’d probably go for stainless. Not authentic I know but most would never know the difference.

    I have a lot of my shooting buddies interested in purchasing the pens. I also have a metal lathe and a mill so I could turn some my self if need be.
