    Only time I wouldn't use coated bullets would be through a suppressor. Other than that my experience with them a has been nothing but positive.

    Why not through a suppressor? Is there a concern with the coating coming off? I have seen some recovered coated bullets and did not see any signs of the coating coming off. Just wondering as I have never given this any thought.

Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.

    Well, frankly I don't know. This is just the advice I have heard and it seems sound. I think anything but jacketed or solid bullets are generally not recommended for cans and I think it's because of the coating coming off. Let me dig into this further.

    Again...check out Johnny's Reloading Bench on youtube - he has a bunch of videos shooting coated bullets out of a .300 BLK through a suppressor and heard/saw no issues.

    Coated bullets work very well in everything I have tried. Miss the smell of burning Alox and beeswax though. Kind of like the aroma of Hoppes, a reminder of our shooting history.

    I've only ran MBC 240 gr Keith bullet through my Super Blackhawk. They were filthy as heck but very accurate. I'll change my load around and see if things improve. I was running a W296 magnum load with them.

    H110/296 same powder burns nasty until it gets up to max load pressures, many powders burn nasty until they reach their sweet spot in pressure. Cast bullet lubes smoke some but how clean the powder is burning has more to do with how nasty a load is.

    well certainly one of them girly home décor stores sells candles in that fragrance??
    I mean you can buy candles in about any fragrance that you can imagine it seems.
    maybe pick a couple of those up and light them when you shoot?
