    I would think that I could get them to size their RNFP to .310 or .311 and use Unique for plinking/small game.


    Anyone already doing this or willing to give some advice?

    The concern would be that shooting a lead bullet would lead to plugging up your gas port with lead eventually. Using gas checked bullets would be a step better but would still have it happen eventually. That is the biggest reason most people will not bother with lead bullets IMHO. I did it with 30 Carbine bullets and mucked up my gas port, but I just did it that once.:cool:

    they make a 120 gr sized .313 for 32-20 lever rifles..

    Missouri doesn't custom size.

    If you're looking to fiddle around with diameters, get a hold of Beartooth Bullets. They usually size in four diameters.


    I forgot about the gas port clogging..
    maybe it's best you stick with jax..

    Thats a first, Brad used to do it all the time. You may have to wait a little longer to get them, but they would do it.

    When I bought 500 bullets from them, the #1 and #2 whitetail, I asked for the 165gr bullets to be cast in .311 and they gladly did that. It took an extra couple of days but was very nice of them.



    I wouldnt think id have to worry about the port clogging if i was shooting lead at/around 1000fps

    I know its a different gun, but my 336 with 9 grains of unique and those same bullets was a pleasure to shoot and never leaded the barrel. No gas checking or anything either.

    I just want a plinking round for now
