Harder bullets lead less. Softer bullets deposit more lead.

Swaged bullets are softer than cast, typically.

That is not always the case. Obturation is not always happen with hard bullets and light charges. Try shooting 2.8 grains of bullseye behind a hard bullet in a 38 special and you will shortly see what I mean.

Zorros if you want to learn about leading visit Cast Boolits forum and use their search engine (It works). The bullet casters deal with leading frequently and have answers. They have a custom search engine on their site which works much better than ours.

Try searching for Cylinder Face Leading and while you are at it Barrel Leading.

Back at post #10 , I've had the opposite experience . Some factory loads are ok , some are horrendous lead-ers . My loads did much better . ( But I used good bullets , and suitable loads .)

PPU loads seem PU. Hollow lead bullet.
