    Cheapest .224 bullets for reloading and puffing rabbits

    Not a big deal, looking for the cheapest make of hollow point/soft point for reloading and puffing rabbits. It's that time of year and 65gr sierra game kings are a bit too good for the wan rabbit

    Midway dogtown's - get a friend (with FAC) to bring them from the US.

    They have really good reviews and at $58 for 500 that's 7.25 per 100 in real money?
    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it, hump it or learn from it then piss on it and walk away.

    When you up this way next I'll see if I can find you some, not promising but I may have some you would be welcome to.

    I use Dog Town 34 grain HP's in my .22 Hornet with good results. I buy them by the thousand-lot. There is another company called Mid-South Shooters Supply that markets the same bullet as the "Varmint Nightmare" for slightly less money. This is a group from these bullets.


    I'd post some pics of blown up rabbits and prairiedogs but I don't want to set folks off....~Muir

    ...and (all of a sudden) the same bullets are 15.60+ per 100.

    That is a rip off.

    I know where I buy mine.

    That's very strange because I buy them for 12-50 per 100, perhaps your supplier doesn't like you, for a couple of quid extra you can get the 40 gn Vmax which is a far superior bullet
