Lot's of great info!!!  Thanks, Gang!!!

By the way, one of my thought experiments was the running of lead bullets at lower velocities to keep from "smearing" lead down the barrel.

It was just a thought....but it was intended as increasing the flexibility of the gun...but I don't know that you could run lead slow enough and still cycle the action fast enough to get the right blend of projectile performance AND reliability.

You can get hardened lead bullets or gas checked lead bullets that will not lead foul the barrel at surprisingly high velocities, I use 335 GR gas checked hardened lead bullets for my 460 S&W with 38 GR of 296 under them and no appreciable leading in the barrel.

Leads to ask the question, which is easier to clean out copper fouling or lead fouling?  Both get scrubbed, and both have special cleaners available.  BTW Sweets can be rough on a barrel if not used correctly.
When you are up to your neck in alligators it is hard to remember your original intention was to drain the swamp

I find copper easier, generally.  God, when you get a sheet of lead in a barrel....PHEW!!!

I wish mercury was a bit safer to use ( i.e. keep around the house ) ....I'd just plug the bore and let the lead amalgamate.
