You may want to do a search on google for Bullshop bullets or No Excuse bullets, they custom make them for cheap.

Lyman great plains bullets I believe are by casting them yourself. It would cost around $110 for the mold and handles.

I ask Bobby about shooting Bullshops or No Excuses and he said he had never heard of them..he just said the Lymans could be bought everywhere? Will look into the No Excuses when I get barrel back..

Ahhhhh I remember seeing them at gun shop in colorado springs, they must be in real limited supply.

I know theres the Hornady great plains bullets available over the counter but in all these years, only one shot ive seen has carried those lyman bullets.

My Renegade .50 was deadly with the 460 gr NoExcuses, and 1/48 twist. Not sure why you want to bore out to .54 cal for conicals? The .50 cal will have a better BC.

Muley,
because I bought the gun for 75.00 with a trashed barrel all rusted and pitted, spent at least 10 hrs cleaning it up, cut 6.5 in off barrel that was pitted really bad and have shot it for awhile like that.... its a pain in the azz to load after a couple shots due to the pitting even after polishing the bore for a couple hrs..also it does not want to quit rusting no matter how well you oil the bore after cleaning, every 3-4 weeks I have to clean the barrrel even though it hasnt been shot... 115.00 for basically new barrel that will shoot heavy slugs great for hunting in heavy thickets is pretty cheap.. basically tired of screwing with a trashed barrel...

How much are you paying to get it bored out?

That's what I thought it was, but I never got to talk to him. I wanted to make a .58 slow twist for a PRB with mine, but it's sold now.

Not if I would have had to wait two years to get it done. He got really lucky. I thought I would have had to wait a couple of months, and that would have been fine over the winter. 2 years? Forget it!

He said he could probably have it done in a couple months since its a 20 in. barrel and a Renegade, said that when he had a machine free for a bit he would do it, guess it doesnt take long for such a short barrel..if not oh well money is sent and its paid for guess Ill just have to wait.. I just found a .54 cl T/C Renegade at my gun shop for 199.00 w/a scope on it, owner said bore is in good shape as far as he can tell, going to take my bore light over there and look at it tomorrow..
