I have been asked (in the light of the FC heading towards Lead free),by my employers to look at us using alternatives to lead.
I will be fox shooting .222 rem and deer stalking 260 rem and 308. I have been using Barnes TTSX 110 grain my 308 to good effect, I was using Sako 123gr. I like this bullet because it is very effective but also it limits the amount of energy coming out the exit side, which is quite important in a very busy southern England when working for a risk averse company.
My question to the experienced lead free users is how have you found the alternatives?
Would any of you have the time for a chat about your real world experiences?
Is their anyone local to me with part boxes of .22 , 6.5mm or 30cal lead free expanding bullets they would like to sell so I could try some? Or even factory ammunition in the above calibers?
If anyone has pictures of entry and exit wounds of known calibers and bullet type I would be very great full and will forward an email address.
To anyone using .22 centre fires how are you finding them as their not the room to drop to much weight?
