Water drop or no?

I get zero leading with the 230gr shot through my CZ. I recently switched to a 160gr and now experience more leading than I'm comfortable with, probably due to the higher velocities.

I drop my 9mm 124's, should the 160's be the same?

First I`d check size , make sure they fit .Second I`d look at mold design & bearing surfaces , Bet it`s smaller on the 160 ???

Going liter with cast is a catch 22 situation , liter & easier to push but contact with the barrel is usually lessend & it`s easy to surpass the alloys ability to grasp the lands V/S a heavier design .

Hope that made sense to someone besides me , I`m only 1/2 way thru the first cup
