For you shotgun reloader

Have you ever found any BIG lead, BB or bigger? I'm looking for some big lead to load up for hunting sand hill cranes, where it is legal to use lead and I would like to find something smaller than #4 buck.

Unless you can get a custom cast, I highly doubt it. Their's nothing on the market for a shot szies greater than .18 but less than #4 buck. You could build a composite load like #4 and BB or even look at something that provides a denser pattern like hevishot. The latter would be more expensive, a little cheaper if you handload it.
