    Just loaded the second batch and realized...........at 14.0gr of H110 per cartridge............I can load 500 rounds for every pound of powder.

    Cool.

    Leading?

    Gonna try and clean it tomorrow. What should I be looking for or the lack thereof?

    I'll take a look see this evening if I get the chance and take pics in the process.

    Yes. There is lead in the bore. Silver streaks running the length of the barrel. Guess their "no leading" is full of crock!

    The good news (I guess) is that BoreTech Rimfire Blend seems to work well in getting the lead out......so to speak. Just following their directions on the bottle and the lead all seems to be gone.

    It's a step I ain't happy about, but easily remedied with a little more elbow grease (a bore brush - uuuuggghhhh) and a little more time.

    Oh well.

    Yeah, I don't have the lead problem with Gas Checks in my .44 Mag or Casull. But, I got 500 of the .357 Mag bullets for a little over $40. Which, ain't bad for a little bore brushing in the cleaning process.

    I will also get some Hornady 180gr XTP bullets when they become available again. They are cheaper than GC cast bullets!!

    If you'll box up a few of those bullets and send them my way, I'll send 'em back to you with some lube in the grooves that will stop the leading. Then I'll walk you through a short, easy procedure to lube the rest of the ones you load, with no investment other than a few minutes spent with a cut-off brass case and a Propane torch.
