on a whim I bought 1000 powder coated 60 grain cast pills I am NOT unhappy, I thought about buying a mold and, and, Never mind to much to do already, But they do shoot well from my 22 K hornet, 221 FB and 223 I just keep the velocity 900 to 1800 BlueDot works very well, if I could find some 40 grain would be worth a try too
