Finally got these very expensive bullets from Woodleigh and plan on doing some loads up for them. At a 100$ for 100 bullets I can't be plinking them away.

When I was on the phone with the bullet supplier in Ontario Canada the sales guy made sure not to mention that these bullets were boxes of 50 only and not 100 round count as I had thought.     Talk about sticker shock when I opened up the package to find only half the bullets I was expecting.

Seeing that these friggin' things are gold plated I better lock'em up and keep them for when the stock market crashes again, that way I will have something to negotiate with.

Midway USA has the 215 grn for US $30 a box. Will they ship North? If you get hit with import duties, it might come out the same?

Mmmm, CAD$50 per box of 50, huh? Ouch! We can get the 215gn Woodleighs for about AUD$34 for 50.

Mind you, a 50 box of Barnes TSX 168gn 30 cal bullets is AUD$76!!

After buying these gold plated Woodleigh bullets I find out they don't cycle worth sh*t out of my BSA. $100 for 100 bullets is a frikkin' joke, you figure that that Woodleigh would have figured this out already and made a 215 grain spire point bullet.     Thats the last time they ever scam me for money......

What can I say? Maybe your's doesn't like RNs.

Steve Redgewell makes a 200gn Spitzer. Maybe you should chase up some of them.

I wuz @ Wal Mart today(cause thats usually where I pick up my trap loads) I made note of the prices of .303 british loads.Federal Power-Shok 150 grn (20 box) $19.94 + taxes, Winchester 180 grn Power point $17.67, Remington 180 grn core-lokt $20.36, & Winchester or Federal trap loads (12 & 20 ga.) 7 1/2 are still $20.00 per 100.
Just F.Y.I.

At the risk of being offered a last cigarette & the option of a blind fold ! Or just being pelted with house bricks (I don't belive anyone on this site would be common enough to just use rocks to stone a bloke to death )  I use 215gn Cast bullets & have used 215 gn RNs over the years but have found them to be a sopecialist round for BIG animals like Water Buff ! For normal work & I would include  Camel ,Donkeys (& Buff on occastion) A good 180 gn bullet is plenty ample to handle anything that walks ,crawls ,Flies ! I really think the 215gn is out dated with the selection of 180gn bullets on the market these days!

 In the words of Breaker Morant .....Shoot straight You Bastards! (also I smoke 12mg & yes I would like the blind fold )

I don't understand why the Woodleigh's don't work in my rifles, the Norma 216 grainers work flawlessly in all 3 of my Enfields.I guess its single load them at the range

Which Norma 216 grainers are they?

Perhaps you should try seating the bullets differently? Just a suggestion.
