I've been looking all over to buy some ~.309 (160gr+) or so Hard Cast lead bullets but I've had no luck finding anywhere other than laser cast and don't want to pay that much. Ideas? Thanks.

Edited to say that this will be going out a win 94 with 9gr of Unique.

I have used Beartooth (http://www.beartoothbullets.com/index.htm) in the past, but their prices are now comparable with jacketed and Oregon Trail in many cases.

Do you need gas checked bullets ?

I cast my own but if I buy, I shoot these 30-30 bullets (Cowboy style)

I use Trail Boss (7.8 gr ) which I like alot better than Unique.

I use these guys. Give them a call to check on shipping prices.

I buy cast rifle bullets from Dave Jennings at

I shoot his .38-55s regularly and have some .30s ready to try.

Oops, I noticed you are looking for cheap. From what I have seen, if a commercial cast rifle bullet does not cost nearly as much as jacketed, it has been run off on a machine as used for pistol bullets and will work only in light loads. Maybe. The Laser Cast PLAIN BASE shot better for me than their gas check.

You could also check Meister bullets. Their 165gr cast is a fun and accurate load over Trail Boss or Unique.

Ideas? Thanks

Cast your own. That's what I did. Shot within 3 inches at one hundred yards, which was better (a little better) than jacketed.

I've used Moyer's handgun bullets only, since I don't reload for rifle yet. His handgun bullets are excellent. He has the 0.309 bullet in 150 and 173 gr. Not sure how his price compares to others, but give him a look. He's somewhat local to me and is a great person to deal with.
