I use both Titegroup and Longshot for both my 40 Cal S&W and my 50 Cal S&W with good success.

Knock on wood I haven't had too much a problem with Titegroup. Burns a little dirty on the low end and I have to watch the measurement like a hawk. My problem is I bought 8 lbs of it two years ago and barely halfway through if that.

Are those coated bullets less smokey then un-coated lead?

Smoke is non existent with these polycoated bullets. No leading in the barrel either. Its not just polycoated Blue Bullets I think there is a company that uses Hi Tek, any who I think that the coatings are similar.
