Joe, I ain't gonna be cuttin up nuthin! That big 'ole plate of lead can just sit there. I'm gonna buy 'em from now on. Doing the math, the copper plated bullets are equal to, and sometimes less, than cast rounds.

My source of cast bullets is ACME Bullets. Super nice folks. Good products, always in stock. And they do painted bullets too if ya like them. But again super great customer service and I will continue to use their products.

And the copper plated bullets are limited in design, but shoot clean and are really accurate. They're the only thing I can shoot in my 44 as every cast round so far leads it up.

Hey OLD RANGER

Just curious but have ya thought about hanging that
chunk of lead as a target or back stop?
Could be interesting .....might also cut it down to size
sooner or later......maybe not in our life time

Well frankly, no. Haven't entertained that idea. There might exist an issue of cross contamination of different alloy bullets becoming embedded in the softer lead. The horrors!

Ya know, the warning on the saw is valid though. While back I was ripping a piece of lumber with a circular saw. The vibration caused my right hand to loose it's grip and it wasn't a good experience. I didn't get hurt, but it was close. That little stroke did a number on me. I deal with power tools differently now as a result.
