Good question! All you really will have to do, is clean your gun(s) pretty well... Then reload and use data for lead bullets of the proper weight. I am beginning to believe that proper fit is the most important part of recipe. Jeff Chapin knows this, and will sell you a product that's the best he can make. If I didn't cast already, I'd be buying from him. He's trying so hard to get all the business he can get that he's now selling ingots of recycled range lead to casters like me.
I intend to help him as much as I can, with getting the word out about NorthStar.
Let me say this, to try and dispell some of the myth's that are out there about shooting lead... I just cleaned my Dan Wesson Model 15 after shooting it for two thousand (2,000) rounds without cleaning it. I put a dry patch through the bore, and got absolutely no lead on the patch.
I don't mean to make it look like I'm yelling, I'm just stating the facts. If you go to Facebook, then The Reloading Room, (it's public, you should be able to see it) then go into the Maintenance and Refinishing Folder, down near the bottom you're going to find a picture of that patch.
(It'd be a lot easier if you'd just join the Group and let me know who you are.)
Jim, I was looking at NorthStar's website and was considering trying some of their 9mm bullets. What will I have to do differently when reloading, shooting, and cleaning vs. normal jacketed bullets? It seems that there is a considerable cost savings but I was just unsure if there was some burning negative to using them in a semi-auto, or during reloading or keeping the gun clean, etc....
