    For 21 yrs I've been hunting every single year and I think I'm finally not going to be able to hunt this year because I can't find any lead free ammo. I've looked for it every where and it's out of stock . Does anyone know who might have a box for sale ? Anyone ? Please help me :) I've tried all the major store like cabelas,bass pro,cheaper than dirt ,midway exct . Thanks again ! Hope fully someone out there can help me or make some for me because I'd hate not to be able to hunt this year :(.

    Go on craiglist, or whatever you have in cali, and find a cheap reloadin setup.

    Buy the appropriate dies, bullets, powder, and primers. Buy your books, and voila.

    Never again having to beg/steal/cry about not having ammo...

    That's a good idea but is it hard to reload ? Also what's a good reloading kit? Thanks

    Reloading ammo is easy once you get your recipes down, may take a few tries, i normally reload my 7mm and .223 spend a day doing it and by the end i have at least a couple outings

    Not bad at all, what you also need is a brass cleaner as well, but i see that as a good starter kit.

    Barnes and Federal both load the Barnes TTSX bullet in 130 and 140gr.
    Match-grade hunting bullet.
