Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I have picked up a rumour that the FC will soon be outlawing the use of lead bullets for use on their land in the pursuit of deer. Does anyone know this to be more than a rumour....and if so is there a timeline? More importantly, what are the options and how much is that going to set me back for a box of 7.57?

    As for 7 x 57, Federal premium is about £50 a box of 20 so imagine loaded with Barnes copper solids about £15 more at least or you could hand load or just ignore it!
