    That is one reason I got a mold. Muzzleloading bullets were getting way too expensive.

    Do you thiunk manufacturers pay any attention to this forum? I sure would like to hear their reasoning or at least some explanation? Don't they want you to be able to shoot?

    Its really isnt thier fault things are so expensive, they have to increase sales prices to cover costs and keep a profit margin so they can stay in business. Its the price of raw materials going up.. Thank our genious government for that..

    I can only go along with that so far. You can get .452/259 grain bullets for approx $26.00 a hundred. these are made for a 450 Bushmaster and perform at the same velocities as a 59 cal. Many of the 45cal bullets used in 3" slugs can be purchased for less than a $1.00 a bullet, yet a box of the 3" slugs go for about $20.00 a box of 5. I don't believe the sabot or shotgun casing is a huge expense.
