$66 per 50
Woodleigh 150gr .270 win projectiles
$40 per 50

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
