In my search for different heavy .30 bullets, I am coming across a lot, and while i will shoot them and try them all, I am thinking I may be able to narrow the options with at least 25 rounds of a given bullet and most are boxes of either 50 or 100.  So I started thinking maybe we could start a swap meet kinda thing. If someone has 25 bullets that they wanna swap for a different bullet to try we could post it and trade back and forth, or course we would have to eat the shipping and it would be an on the honor kinda system so we may limit it to post count or something.  What do yall think?  i guess I am more or less doing it to make it easier for others to try something than buying a complete box cause I can always shoot a bullet just for the sake of practice but was toying with the idea.  Let me know your feedback or thoughts.

Sounds like people are open to the idea.  I guess post what you have and are willing to trade and then PM the info once you find someone wanting to trade for address and all.
