Gun store had a deal on 357 ammo...last of his stock..don't remember the name brand...
They were 9.00 a box....

I heard shooting lead bullets can foul up your barrel pretty good, i try not to shoot them...

Are they that bad.... :-\

and plastic casings, he said they sometimes stick in the cylinder....
i want to get them, but not sure if they are safe or what...

could use some info....Please ;)

I shoot lead out of my 357 and my 45's all the time. I also shoot moly coated 9mm bullets. One thing is not to load them too hot and the straight lead bullets are smokey. When I get done shooting the lead I will shoot about 5 rounds of full metal jacket ammo through my guns and it cleans out the little bit of leading I might get. Some people will say not to do that but has worked for me for quite awhile. Mark

Plastic (or poly) cases just seem wrong to me, guess I'm just to old fashioned.

i have never see the PLASTIC case............who make these. I would think plastic would bust open under the pressure..........also, i do not see how these would be possible to load.........primer, bullet seating, etc.
