Yanus, I'm shooting Lyman 31141's (170 gr fp) with gas check and homemade lube in a pre 64 M94 at over 2000 fps with accuracy acceptable for hunting and no leading. If you're buying lead bullets, cost is apparently not a factor, so one point five cents for a gas check should be of little concern for the return of accuracy and velocity. Harder lead (which is what a lot of the commercial guys do) is not always the answer to reducing barrel leading, there are many factors including concentricity, throat configuration, bullet shape and size and seating depth. Also, harder lead, especially if more brittle may not be the best for expansion as in a hunting round. Like Paul B. properly fit home cast can be pushed purdy hard. sundog
