Re: Removing lead build up in barrel
A cast bullet can be driven at speeds up to 1,600 fps with out leading. This is a plain base with out a GC. The speed of 1,600 fps is well past what you need to deliver from your normal .44 handgun. Copper plated bullets are a waste for hot loads. Anyone who has cast bullets and gone thru the learning process can turn out a good strong cast bullet. I have taken Mule Deer, Antelope and finished off many Moose and Elk with 240 WW loads in a .44 Mag. Make sure you have the right size slug and remove all signs of copper jacket metal from your bore. Leaving copper jacket metal in the bore will cause leading in handgun or rifle. Pour your own.
