    Spent a day down in the "big smoke" Melbourne today.
    A 2 hour drive, and a city of approx 4 million


    Woodleigh 280gr .444 marlin projectiles
    $66 per 50
    Woodleigh 150gr .270 win projectiles
    $40 per 50
    Remington .444 cases...$100 per 100

    These prices are nornal
    As our $ drops, the prices will go up.
    Please keep in mind that I prefer Woodleigh Projectiles for the .270 and the .444 only
    I could go for a cheaper pill, but I don't

    Nosler 55gr .224 Pills are $30/100
    Speer 235gr .375 Pills are $32/50
    I tried to get once fired .444 brass @$20-25/100 but couldnt find any

    Midway USA stocks the Woodleigh bullets. .270 180 gr list for $35.99 in a 50 box. So about the same as there. Didn't see any .444. But the other Boat anchors are in the $60+ range also here. They compare in price to Barnes. Or about double of other brands.

    But like all things we drink, eat, shoot ----- pay for what we LIKE....:D

    I'll walk a mile for a Camel.....and respect everything enough to only shoot em with a Sierra....:p

    I like the big "four" Hornady, Nosler, Sierra, & Speer. Different guns prefer different brands, that's life. :D

    I am loading with Woodleigh, at present, as I know they hit hard, and penetrate well.
    I have also discovered that they shoot real well too.
    I have a pig shooting trip comng up in 2 weeks, and have set up the .270 and .444 for that reason. There is no way I would use a lighter constructed projectile on a mud covered pig, as it will only fragment on the mud, and not allow humane kills.
    I am running Sierra, Nosler, and Speer for specific jobs in other rifles
