If there's a Bass Pro near you, try that. The Bass Pros around here suck for reloading supplies (primers by the HUNDRED???) but they don't turn over the oddball stuff, and they have a lot of oddball stuff. Varget... not a chance. 800X? Maybe. That's where I bought mine. In Georgia though.Any idea where I can locate some 800X? Some places are saying discontinued, I hope not. Finding supplies right now is almost impossible but I will try to pick up some when available. I'll switch to that and work my way up over time. I am also looking for hard cast for max penetration. trying to summarize what I've read, there are some 215 grain flat nose that have good results for penetration. Any feeding or reliability issues in a glock with aftermarket barrel? looks like Missouri Bullet has a 20 Brinell 215 WFN they claim is good for Rowland, will 20 hold up through an animal trying to bite me? We have almost zero Grizzly, primarily concerned with wolves, cats, and Black Bear.
Edit: I see Trinan is testing the exact 215's I'm looking at. Maybe these are currently the best option available?
20 Brinell is plenty hard for whatever you want to do, at least in my experience. Unless you're worried about today's modern super animals, such as the flying squirrel, and the electric eel. (Sorry; that's a joke.)
