Was wondering if any one had any luck with a lead bullet for my old 99 in 300sav? What I was looking for was a factory bullet that was ready to load.

I also have imr4064 I think that is the only true rifle powder that I have. I loaded some carroll 165gr lead with 9 gr. unique. About 1200fps. Low recoil. Also I was wondering about crimping. I don't have one. Is this reallly neccesary. I got 2" groups with this load at 75 yards with a peep. Had alot of fun. thank's again for the help.
