Source for cast lead 8mm bullets?

Ok, in a fit of paternal pride, I bought each of my teenage stepsons their own Turkish Mausers. They learned how to degrease them, clean the bores, and even give the dry wood a proper linseed oil finish after some elbow grease and steel wool work. Range day came, and to say they were sore after 15 rounds each of full-patch military surplus ammo is an understatement. I've got plenty of good 8mm brass by Winchester and Remington, and have always loaded 170, 198, and 200 gr ammo for my own 8mm deer rifle. For the boys, I'm thinking about loading some light cast bullet loads, perhaps on top of a a comfortable charge of Alliant 2400. Anybody know a source of cast 8mm bullets, perhaps gas checked or lubed? Thanks in advance!

Beartooth Bullets offers a beautiful 170g.

He has a great website, but I have been waiting many weeks for him to fill and order.

I have not bought any bonus bullets, but the do offer gas checked 8mm.

Liberty is a nice mom and pop operation, but they leave the addtion of gas checks on thier 8mm bullets up to the customer. Other than that, they are good bullets.

I can highly recomend this guy. He makes great gas checked case rifle bullets. The prices are cheap, the delivery fast, and the quality high. He is my first choice. His bullets are mainly from Lyman moulds, and my Lyman cast bullet handloading book has load data. Not only are there 2400 loads, but loads for Unique as well.
