What hard cast 180 or 200 are you using?

So far I've loaded XTPs, Noslers, and Berry 180s. All seem to shoot fine through my LW barrel, but I'm always on the look out for a less expensive bullet and I use lead in most of my other handguns.

Ive used the 180gr cast and 200gr "steeler" cast bullets from missouri bullet co. with good results, good prices too. SNS Casting has about the same prices but they dont offer a 200, but a 220gr instead.

I've got some ga arms 180gr FP thats pretty good although smokey. 18 hardness on brinell scale doesn't lead the barrel and accurate enough. My only complaint is they are very smokey I think it's due to the red rooster lube. Anyone tried the laser cast from Oregon trail?

I've loaded Double Tap 200 grain hardcast bullets with good results in my g20. Not inexpensive though.

For a plinking load, I'm working on a box of Missouri Bullet 180 grain TCBB, so far so good and accurate in my gun with a mild charge of AA#7. About one in 20 the lube is either missing or has fallen out, but, these were shipped during an extreme cold spell which I think may have something to do with it.

Colorado Cast Bullet's are good, but I'm pretty sure they're local.

Penn Bullet's has an excellent reputation and I intent on giving them a try next time I order.

I'm going to try out some Double Tap 200 grain WNFPGC today...I hope. Regardless of the results I intend to order some Beartooth's 200 grain WNFPGC too just to compare. Nice thing about these two is you can order just 100.

I've read nothing but good about Oregon Trail and will probably give them a shot in the future too.

I'd really like to find a Hard Cast 180 grain WNFPGC if one exists?

I just shot some MidAtlantic Bullets 180 grain TCFP. They seemed very uniform and have had about one in 200 missing the lube. I bought some 155 semi wadcuters but havent even opened them. I also don't know how well they will cycle in a Glock.

I just loaded up some Lee 175 TLSWC's I cast last week and plan to test them out as soon as I can get some time. I too shoot primarily cast bullets for the economy of it. I can get good performance and accuracy at less cost. Just use the condomed bullets for SD or hunting as needed.

I cast my own Lyman 175 grain TCBB and Lyman Devastator 156 grain HPBB, RCBS 175 grain TC SWC

I load them with Blue Dot 10.4 grains for these using CCI 300 very accurate!
