Lead-Free Handgun Ammunition

limbhanger32 ·
I'm trying to get feedback regarding lead-free handgun ammunition in terms of wear and tear on the firearm. We are considering an agency purchase for use during indoor training, but I've heard some rumblings about possible wear/erosion of the breech face in addition to some hard primers from some of the Winchester loads. Anybody have any intel on this topic? Need to gather the details before jumping off into something that could negatively effect agency-purchased weapons. Any help you guys...

I've seen thousands and thousands of 9mm, .40, and .45 frangible ammo go downrange, mostly from Federal and Winchester. The quality control is not as tight as duty ammo: I've seen dead primers, and we sent a whole lot of 9mm back to Federal for "squib" rounds - The round never left the chamber, preventing the next round from going into battery. But I've never seen any extra wear on our Sigs because of frangible ammo. The gun gets "dirtier", but does not cause any wear. The FLETC must...

Background: I help teach with a guy whose ammo allocation is well over 75k + a year (rifle and pistol). Most of what is shot is frangible. Partly due to shooting steel, partly because after so much ball, bio-environmental has to close the range down and clean it. I see very little difference in internal/external performance between the rounds. As stated, frangible does seem to be a little dirtier. The fix? Proper weapons maintenance =) . Fired mostly through G19s (Gen3), M9s, and Colt/ FN...

Winclean tended to have punctured lead free primers leading to firing pin tip and breachface erosion with the Glocks ("sharper" point at tip). I haven't used that product in awhile (mid 2000 time frame) but know it was an issue.

See the above, it's correct. It came to light at a very large southern California PD. We've been shooting far more nearly lead free frangible than duty since the early 2000s. I have not seen any physical impact on our pistols, shotguns, and rifles from those rounds. We did have one very specific and interesting issue though - the differences in bullet weight and slide travel speed between frang and duty ammo hid some very significant function problems from us. Something to consider. i'd try...

Hard Cast Bullets in Service Calibers?

HGT75 ·
Is there any DocGKR-style reliable data on the performance of these cartridges? Some forums on the errornet have been buzzing about them and sparked my curiosity.  The stuff from Buffalo Bore would be an example.

I'm not sure what you are looking for. Like gelatin penetration? Obviously such bullets do not expand at all.

They punch a caliber size hole that typically goes in excess of 20"--no expansion, minimal TC.

Part of your equation is how hard are your bullets? Some manufacturers will use the same molds and cast moderate hardness for bullseye velocities with a harder alloy for IPSC/IDPA Major and service (the harder bullets resist leading barrels better at higher velocities). You'll find cast bullets will typically be smokier (especially in indoor ranges) than plated or jacketed bullets.

Are you asking about terminal balistic studies on home brewed hardcast loads or are you asking about something else like their viability in shooting games?
