    lead semi-wadcutter

    Unjacketed ammo is generally cheap, alot of people don't like dealing with cleaning lead out of their barrels though.

    mold your own, even cheaper.


    like said above, make sure to get that lead out your barrel

    plus i may be wrong, but im pretty sure unjacketed ammo has to be slightly slower so the lead does not deform in flight. I may be wrong though.

    I was planning on buying cheap .45 LSWC from lancer ammo for my Springfield TRP because it's so cheap, I dunno... I guess it's like putting 87 octane through a Ferrari :hsughno:
