I shoot cast lead bullets in a CZ .22 Hornet rifle. I also shoot cast lead bullets in a S&W Mdl. 53 revolver in .22 CF Magnum caliber. It cost about $3.00 per hundred rounds. These are much more fun than the .22 rim fires.

Sounds to me like you need to get into reloading and just blast away with your centerfires.


Expensive to get started, unless you do handloading, but it will pay for itself easily.

Well, we have discussed the shortage and esp. The dearth of 22LR ammo. I had about 2800 22LR late last year. Didn't have to buy any again until we got the wife her Browning Buckmark this past spring(got Two Winchester bricks at purchase), still have those two, plus some Federal 550's, and the Federal auto match 325's(one still untouched, the other just opened this week...)plus several 100 rd. packs of Winchester & CCI mini-mags..

We shoot (between us) between 200 & 300 per range trip. Still have around 2200 asst. 22LR., but I'm going to have to get a few more bricks before the end of the year. Compared to Centerfire handgun Ammo it's almost impossible to find. Have ordered some ammo from somewhere online each "Payday" the last 3 months. Only the Big 5 has been "re-stocked" the last two months and has plenty of everything except, you guessed it,..22LR..

I have not had the pleasure of shooting any black powder guns. I have a few late 19th century rifles, left to me by my uncle. I'm finally selling some of the collectible stuff that was left to me off. Can't afford the luxury of keeping them anymore, vet bills come first..

Yes there are many that look like modern bolt action guns. But the modern ones are not made to shoot round balls accurately(wrong rifling twist).

The Ruger Old Army was a completely modern handgun. They are no longer made but can be found. These guns can also handle .45 Colt Ctgs. with a converter. The ROA will cost as much as a modern handgun. They can be heavy loaded with cast bullets or round balls. Triple 7 and other substitutes work well the ROA.

There is no substitute for good ol' fashioned black powder.
It will work in the modern guns (209 primers) but It's still crap.
I'll never use it. I'll never suggest it.

Reloading doesn't have to take up a lot of space. If you get a handloading kit all you really need is a flat surface and a hammer. They also make handheld single stage presses that can be stored in a shoebox.
