    I do. The 330 grain Lyman 457-122 HP and the 300 grain, RCBS 457-300GC. Both excellent. ~Muir

    You pay all the postage miniwizard and I'm sure he would do it for you.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Were I a more local fellow I'd drop you a hundred for free but as stated, I'm a long swim from the UK. Have you ever thought of casting for yourself? Easily done with minimal equipment.~Muir

    I have the RCBS 405 grain RNFP GC mould, and sizing die. This is about the biggest bullet you can use in e.g. a Marlin lever action. Probably not what you are looking for.

    I only cast every few months.

    You would have to supply gas checks, or try without.

    Tim Hannam supply hard cast non-GC bullets for 45-70 at very reasonable cost, can't remember what weight.
