    .257 copper bullets for trying

    Went to gunshop the other day to get some .257 bullets for reloading. They insisted on pointing me towards the cartridges and I insisted that I wanted bullets. "No" they said those are "bullet heads". "Whatever" I replied.
    So does anybody have any .257 copper BULLETS that they wish to dispose of. Happy to meet and trade with cash.

And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama

    Hi Teyhan,
    I've been on the sniff for all copper bullets in 30cal and have really struggled to find any.
    I've witnessed quite a few roe being shot with them, and was highly impressed with their down range performance.

    The problem is. . Barnes are like hens teeth in this neck of the wood and the new Hornady offering was costing £1 a bullet for a box of 50. . . . Yes that's right, per bullet, not cartridge !!!

    I ended up buying a box of Noslet BT Hunting for less than half the price.

    There seems to be a gradual push towards non lead alternatives, but if this is an indication of the prices we will be expected to pay it will wipe out any cost saving in reloading.

    Perhaps time for some enerprising Uk or European bullet manufacturer to start up?

    Lapua Naturalis springs to mind.
