Having difficulty finding ammunition for your .256 Bobcat, .263 Express or .50-70 Gatling, or any number of equally anomalous chamberings? The Bore House could be your go-to source for these oddities; in fact, company literature boasts 554 options. Each round is handloaded on a single-stage press in adherence to SAAMI specifications for dimensions and pressure. As for cost, the ammunition is priced at the cost of the components plus $6.80 per box. The latter is subject to change based upon the difficulty of case creation, load configuration, and rarity of the projectile used.
