I am intending to grab a bunch of various ammo to do some initial testing:
- target shooting: lighter and hopefully something jacketed
- bear defense: Cor-Bon, Buffalo Bore, Grizzly, etc.
a) Any general recommendations?
b) Lead fouling: Do gas-checked bullets really work to cut down on lead fouling?
How do you guys manage the lead fouling issues? I know you can lube your bullets but is there anything special I can do to factory lead bullets to cut down or completely by-pass lead fouling?
c) Cartridge cases: Which type of factory cartridge case has the best quality for reloading? Winchester, Cor-Bon, Hornady, Federal, others?
PS: I'll reload later but not now.
