I, too, am a bullet caster. For inexpensive "banging" ammo, nothing says cheap like a cast, gas check bullet.
Jacketed? Hornaday Interlock is a fine bullet. The 165 gr BTSP .308 is great in the .30-06. Remington 150 gr SP or the Winchester 150 gr PP both do well in the .308. The Winchester 64 gr PP in .223 is badazz in 'yotes and was chosed by one of the more popular gun rags as the best "patrol rifle" cartridge. Load over 25 gr of W-748 and shoot sub 1" all day.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
