I need 44 round ball

I need to know where I can purchase 44 round ball (454 diameter). Where's the cheapest place? From midway, others out there or does any individuals out there make them for sale. I also got ammo 40 or 10mm for trade if the trade is worth it.

I can cast you some if you want. I use a Lee .454 mold. They are not the nice swaged ones you can buy commercially but they will do the the trick and go where you point em! How many do you want?
Then there are these guys, folks here have bought from them. But I haven't cause I roll my own.

I cast my own now too, but before I started, I was a faithful customer of Jeff at ForeFathers Casting Shop, as linked above. If you aren't/can't/don't wanna cast your own, he is way cheaper than Hornady or Speer.

Those are good prices... another thing you may do is go to some local Blackpowder or Reenactor shows, I was shocked at the number of local dealers that were selling their balls in the 5 - 7 dollar per hundred. Now no fancy box, they were in baggies.. But I went out and shot some and they were of good quality.. SO you can even save on shipping

At the local gun shops they are wanting 11 to 15 dollars per hundred boxes of Hornady..

Thanks for the quick replies. How much would you guys charge me for say 500 - 1000 .454 balls?

If BuckRub doesn't want the .454, I will buy the entire lot. If he does, how much for everything minus the .454 balls? Send me a PM. Thanks.
