    Depends on how big the gongs are... a 5+" grouping load in either jacketed or cast is going to be sketchy with an 8" gong, I think, unless you can reliably hold 2 MOA offhand shooting a Lee Enfield and its trigger.

    Some specific cast bullets in milsurp sub-forums on cast bullet forums:
    Military Surplus Rifles
    Military Bench Rest Cast Bullet Shooting
    Silhouette Shooting
    CB Loads / Military Rifles
    Military Rifles

    You'll probably run into Wineman who advised you earlier on one or two of those forums, BTW, I would guess it's the same username.

    His mention of the SAECO/Redding 315 tapered bullet has gotten me to thinking it would be fun to try that bullet powder coated. A heavy powder coat just might make that 30 caliber bullet into one that might work well in a .303 Britishicon.

    The gongs size from 8 to 12 inch at 200 and 6 to 8 at 100 I never really checked them its just a guess.
    I do fair hitting them depends on what kind of range day the shooter is having .

    I am going to give powder coating a try still have to get some items . Seams no one has Gas Checks at this time anyway its still 110 outside so I have time to gather components.
    I like shooting at gongs at the local range at 200 yards off hand if I can do as well as with my jacketed loads I will be happy.

    When I was looking and saw two puny boxes at one of my go todealers I bought them both, there's a shortage here too...
