Other than that they are a bit heavy but shoot great.
    Will it feed cast bullets if they're powder coated or very hard?

    I have tried cast round nose and although better still gets caught on the feed ramp and have not tried coated rounds but that may help.

    Are your cast round nose bullets pretty hard?

    I'm not sure of the make of them as they were given to me by a shooter getting out of the sport and they were not labeled as to who or where they were made or if they were a home casting lot.

    What I hated most was shredding the castle nut on the stock every time I wanted to take it down to clean it. Bad way to design a gun if you plan to clean it more than once every 2000 rounds.
