    Hi All

    Hi John here I'm new to group.
    Currently shooting tikka t3 in .308, cz527 carbine in 7.62 x39 and beretta outlander 12g and silver pigeon 20g
    Deer stalking, wild fowling, pigeon and vermin shooting and target shooting.

    Be great if anyone had any info on obtaining Lymans #2 casting alloy in the UK or info on sub sonic loads.

    Welcome to the site,Lymans # 2 can be made up from scrap lead by adding 5%tin & 5%antimony, melt your scrap lead and flux it using bees wax, once you have all the crap out of it add your tin then flux again, the tin melts into the mix the antimony dissolves in so takes a bit longer to become part of the mix but it does go in, I normally do 10 kilo batches and cast it into bars for easy use later I use it for my .22 hornet rounds and push it supersonic with gas checks to prevent leading
    if you have any questions just pm me
