218 BEE

Does anyone have any good loads for the 218 Bee with a 45 gr. gc cast bullet other than the ones listed in the Lyman Cast Bullet Manual?

    I have some in a Lyman Reloading manual...may be the same ones. First one is with red dot then 700X and third was green dot.

    It would be nice to know if anyone has worked up any loads using Lil-Gun. It's great in the Hornet; superb accuracy, high velocity, low pressure. Hard combo to beat.

    I have used Lil Gun with the 35 V-Max, velocity is 3200 fps and the groups average .75" at 100's.

    Due to the rising cost of components I have started working with bullets that I have cast. I am just too cheap/pissed off to pay 2 1/2 times what I paid for the same components last year. Just like fuel prices. Pure greed on the part of big business.

    I live in Missouri and we have numerous lead mines but the last bag of shot I purchased was made in South America and it cost $32.00.

    If the $32.00 I paid went towards American salaries it would'nt bother me as much. But you know the "Miners" were not paid what we consider a fair wage in this country.

    I will get off of my soap box, for now.

    I bought the last bag of shot last summer. I don't know what it is currently selling for. It's going to be cheaper to shoot steel shot at claybirds if lead keeps going up.
