I hear you. I have had such a problem finding anything at all that I'm seriously considering getting a mold. Lately the only think I've come across is some Nosler 180 gr SP. I've looked all over for some lighter projectiles with no luck. If anyone knows of a source that is relatively steady, please clue me in. Went to a gun show yesterday in Raleigh, NC and actually saw an Archangel stock there! It almost blew my mind! That's the first one I've seen other than mine in person. Of course the guy didn't have any extra mag's with him but he said he had some I could order. Maybe next time. Thanks, talk to you all soon. Peace.

The Hornady do shoot well... you can find lapua bullets usually but they are expensive...I recently bought a tin of 182 f most target rounds from the Sportsmans guide... I pulled them to reload, saved the powder for a later date, and I am going to use the brass cases for some cast book it's that are 215 gr...

  I'm seriously considering getting a mold.  

The problem with that is you'll have to reduce your powder charge considerably. Lead bullets will not hold up above 1600 fps (depending on the hardness formula you use) I would say you'd also need a gas check on the back of the bullet.

That being said lead bullets shoot well once adjusted for, Dutch Mosin (one of our members) shoots leads all the time.
