TH3180 Posted May 29, 2013 Share Posted May 29, 2013 I shot a match this evening. I used lead bullets for the first time. At the end of each stage I ejected the cambered round to show clear. Each round had a shallow “c” on the tip of each bullet. The gun ran great with no problems at all. I don’t see any lead build up anywhere on the gun. My thought is the bullet is hitting the bottom of the feed ramp as it’s getting peeled out of the mag. With that I would think there would be some build up there. I will give the rundown of specs and some pictures at the end of this post. This is my first time loading with lead. Before this it has always been FMJ through GLOCKs. What is causing this? How do I fix it? Does this affect anything if I don’t do anything to fix this? Any other tips would be great. -STI Build 40 S&W with about 1000 FMJ rounds through it and about 50 lead rounds that went across the chrono. -Brazo’s tuned mags. -I finished 2 stages with mag #3 and two stages with mag #4. -180 gr BBI bullet -1.165” oal -170PF Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
