Rika, drop your hot bullets into water after they are cast; it substantially increases the brinnel hardness. So does heat treating.RIKA said:I use lead bullets quite often. Hard lead bullets made from wheelweights or those alloyed with antimony can be shot up to 1200fps. Soft lead max velocity is about 800fps without barrel leading. I rarely have to do any extra cleaning.
Just remember that lead bullets aren't recommended for use in the Glocks and Desert Eagles.
