A Big "No-No"

How many times have you thought it easier to shoot the lead out with a jacketed bullet? Well, don't even think about it. In extreme cases, this can cause irreparable damage. I've seen revolver barrel throats deformed and thin-walled barrels bulged. Either means a new barrel.

That does not leave much time for the lead to get out of the way. And I wonder what happens when the bullet decided to pass the lead? And then there was that group that turned the bullet around with the flat base leaving the barrel first.
