    Does anybody have a source for Ni-plated shot who is not BPI?

    Check with Lawrence, that's who made the stuff I used to load for waterfowl back in the 70's & 80's.

    Cabela's has the shot in stock.

    11 lbs. bag for $50.99. # 4 thru 7-1/2.

    Bob, if you find any, let us all know. I've tried several times and all I come up with is BPI. That's soft shot. Cabelas sells BPI nickel plated shot for more money.

    I sure will. I called West Coast and Lawrence today. nada.

    Yep, not a fan of BPI's version. Not only is it soft, the Ni- is soooooooo thin that it does not spoof the Game Warden's field-grade lead sniffer.

    I used to have a source in the UK for Italian shot ... the good stuff ... and priced no worse than BPI, delivered, but they closed a couple of years ago.
