I shoot lead almost exclusively in my handguns, cast by myself. 100 rounds of 45acp are currently costing my about $4. Not too shabby. It makes for a dirty gun but for the price that is an after thought.
200gr LSWC in front of 5.3gr of Accurate #2, meters perfectly, shoots soft and makes major PF. More competitive shooters use Hodgdon Clays than probably most powders combined. Very low charge weight and very soft shooting. If my swamp cooler didn't affect flake powders that's what I'd use too.
New gun, same ol' shot.
