    who makes lead .54 bullets These will be your best bet until Lyman starts getting some molds back out there. You may need to use a felt was under it.

    Vernier sights question

    I had the same questions as you. I put one on my gun and took it outside around prime shooting light. I couldn’t see very well at all unless the contrasting background was perfect. I took off right away. As stated above a larger peep helps but my vernier sight wouldn’t allow one. I want peep...
