Obsolete bullets

I am trying to find some Remington .45 caliber lead round nose component bullets. Either 230 gr. .45 ACP or 250 gr. .45 Colt. Both of these have a cup base. I use them to load .455 Webley because the cup allows the base to obturate and nicely seal the larger bore diameter. They come in boxes of 100 and I'll gladly buy several.

Charlie, have you thought of looking at bullet casters who specialize in cowboy or black powder shooting? Sounds like the kind of thing that would be right up their alley.

For example, Google brought me this:

I have a Lee mold for 265 gr .455 hollow base bullet that I use for my Webley. I'm not sure Lee makes it any more. I did find this. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/10...se-hollow-base

I would Charlie but I don't have any cast right now and my back is giving me fits so I don't know when I will cast again.

Sorry, Charlie. What I meant to ask was with only 100 rounds of ammo, what would you shoot after Snake shot up all 100 rounds.
