I believe the problem is the ammo,,,

I had not experienced any type of leading problems,,,
That's shooting Federal Bulk, CCI MiniMags, and CCI Blazers.

Then one day back in the last ammo shortage,,,
All I could find was 4 boxes of Remington Thunderbolt,,,
After 2 boxes the forcing cone of my Model 18 was severely leaded.

When I got home I pushed a lead tube over an inch long out of the barrel.

I shot the remaining rounds out of my H&R Sportster,,,
It took forever to get all of the deposited lead out.

It seems to me that Thunderbolt is made using very soft lead.
