Has anyone tried any of this stuff? http://www.drtammo.com/hunting.htmlI see they make .223 but the lightest bullet is 79grs.

It would make for a good mortar trajectory.

COR-BON now sells ammo in .204 using a 26gr Varmint Grenade. The also have a .223 50gr VG. This stuff is available in Bakersfield at Ole Boy Outdoors and they are advertisers on this list. I picked up a couple of boxes of each, but haven't tried either yet. I wasn't impressed with their .243 stuff, but others love it including the store owner. Twenty-six gr seems a bit small, but a lot of guys on Coyote Gods swear that a 25gr lead bullet in a .17 Rem is plenty. Woo

You need to be very careful shooting the hevier bullets in non lead. They may be to long and will not shoot good. Give us a call and we can answer all your question.
