Is there any problem with shooting all-lead bullets through a .38 Special Taurus Ti M85? It has the compensator holes drilled downward in the barrel on either side of the front sight. Just curious, since I heard a long time ago that all-lead bullets weren't recommended in comp'd barrels.

'Kay, thanks...I sorta figured that was what'd happen.

I phoned the Taurus factory and they told me my ti snubbie was rated for +P ammo. Does anyone know how much muzzle velocity the comp'd 2-inch barrel loses versus a non-comp'd barrel? I don't have access to a chronograph anymore, so I've not had a chance to chrony any ammo out of that little M85. The wife carries it, and I want it to work if she ever needs it.

Super...thanks for your time and advice. I've been a metro cop for 35 years and the choices that American defensive shooters have in ammo and weaponry are so much better than years ago.
