Re: Hardcast lead
I shoot some lead bullets, but mainly jacketed and plated. You can get rid of some of the leading by shooting some plated when your done with the lead. I wouldn't recommend jumping in and buying 1,000 or so until you do a little testing to make sure the bullets are hard enough, but not too hard. Too hard and they won't expand properly and seal the bore, then you will definitely get leading.
They're definitely worth playing around with, but the plated bullets are becoming more reasonable.
Change...it's all you'll have left in your pocket by 2013.
