We'll see how they do. I've got a lot of friends that use these bullets, heard a lot of good things. Coating is kind of fragile, gotta be careful when seating the bullet and crimping.

Ammo shot great, just ordered 2000 more of them.

Ran a patch down the barrel when I got home from the match, just powder residue on it, nothing blue at all.

Then don't clean it? I rarely clean my guns. Maybe every thousand rounds or so.

I'm used to shooting my muzzle loader, got to clean the crap out of that before i think about putting it away. the idea of not cleaning a gun before i put it away for months isnt what im used to
