The Bible for bullet casters is "Jacketed Performance With Cast Bullets" by Veral Smith of LBT fame. The Lyman Cast Bullet Handbook is very good also. Once you get your brain wrapped around some basics you'll figure out that the three most important things about a cast bullet are it's hardness (first), it's size (second), and lube (third). Shoot a bullet of the right alloy and size lubricated properly at the right speed and leading will not be any bigger an issue than copper fouling in jacketed bullets. (Which is much harder to deal with than leading, by the way.)
