One thing that I observed when using soft leaded ammo is that my groupings was just bad.... very bad!

... that was due to the inner barrel getting so much builtup of lead. Anyhow, I keep in using them to practice double taps... and not for accuracy. Once I am comfortable with DTs, then will go back using FMJs.

I have very tight groupings with FMJ... an inch or less at 15 yards for slow fire. :wink:

very nice! are you shooting 40 or 9? I have a 40, and shooting 165 grain I can get about 2-3 inches at 15 yards. I havent been practicing a lot though :cry:
I've heard 180 grain shoots a little tighter too. More expensive though. And 2-3 inches is still a "stop" shot :wink:

I'm more of a fan of "fire until lock-back" approach.

Seems to me that 2 shots will either be too many or too few a lot of the time.

Lead Bullets

Several months ago I bought 1000 National Bullet Co. .40cal. 155gr. copperized bullets (not jacketed). I worked up a load over 7.5 AA#5 which shoots 5 shot groups at 25yards in less than 2in. (off sand bag of course) The load does great in the M40 & S40 also as good in my Glock 35, G27, G23 plus the Sig.P239 & P229. Cheap and accurate shooting. As accurate as any factory load includeing the expense Gold Dots and Hornady TAP ammo, in fact a lot more accurate that most factory ammo.

No leading problems what so ever in guns with regular rifling Steyr, Sigs. But does lead a little bit in the Glocks but can be easily removed by soaking less that 10 minutes in equal parts of Hydrogen Peroxide and White Vinager (caution wash with water to remove acid and re-oil barrel after removing from solution). Learned that trick from an old black powder shooter.
