I’ve shot blue bullets for years thru my supers and never had a problem started with their 125’s and later their 115 

they never leaded up the barrel, there was a slight build up in the comp but I trick I learned here was to put a few drops of kroil in each chamber after every shooting session and let it sit.  It will soften and get under the crud, and the next time you shoot it, the crud gets blasted out

running 125 Blue bullets in my wife's Tanfo with no comp build up to speak of.

Keep in mind that all coatings are not created equal I tried some Hi-tek coated bullets and they smoked horribly and the lead build up in the comp was impressive.

That's been my experience as well - Hi-Tek coated bullets tended to build up a lot of lead in the comp, but good powder coated bullets build up very little if any unless there's something wrong with the load. Using a large enough bullet size and proper loading practices for lead bullets is important too though; you can make any coated bullet lead up a comp if you load it wrong.

My buddy shot Blue Bullets for a while and got crudded.  Then he tried HiTeck.  Now he only shoots JHPs.  I only shoot JHPs and 4000 rounds later I can still see the machining marks in the bottom of the comp ports.

I shoot a lot of Hy Tek Bayou's in mine, 125 RN

No concerns with build up.

Blue Bullets work great also, just like the Bayou's better

Kroil the comp every 2K let it sit and shot it next time stuff blows out, I put a cover on my optic the first couple of shots so the optic doesn't get Kroil all over it!

I get more stuff in my comp from the open lead bases of FMJ than the Hy-Tek

Awesome.

 

Gotta love that Kroil.

 

Stuff works wonders for many situations.
