But let's not talk about the the fine, upstanding men who have undertaken field tests of various firearms. Those who have demonstrated their ease of use, magazine capacity, quick reloading time, and grievous bodily harm.

Exactly!  Bless you boys!

Fish in a Barrel: I tried my hand at casting bullets, but it was just too much work.  And it was ridiculously hard to find a shop that would let me buy their wheel weights.  All the corporate places have recycling programs and they can't divert the metal.  I eventually found an independent shop where I could buy them... for $1/lb.

I've still got about 800 230gr .452" bullets that need to be sized and lubed, and about 30lbs in ingots.  Things will have to get really desperate before I tackle that.  At least the ingots are useful for scuba diving.

Yeah, you have to be dedicated, but my friend and I knock them out in large batches, and we're in a small town with several tire shops that are happy to have us dispose of their old weights.  Not sure I'd pay for them though- next time you have to buy, remind them that disposal costs money and you'll take them for free. . . .Anyway, yeah, that's quite a bit of lead- I think you have enough to last you a while.  And you have some great toxic door stops and paper weights in the meantime. . .

So, if I want more than one, I can just open as many as I want, and you'll sell them to me?
