Default lead ammunition?

So I was lookin for some cheap 9mm Target ammo and I noticed that lead rounds are a heck of a lot cheaper. But people say there just dirty and smokey. Does anyone have any experience with these and have any comments on them good or bad?

All ammunition is dirty; firearms that shoot ammunition will need cleaned. Some ammunition may be cleaner than others, but with dirty ammunition a shooter may need an extra patch for a good clean-up, no big deal. TulAmmo is the cheapest, dirtiest ammunition I have shot, and have no problems with it.

It's all good as long as you aren't using a glock.

In a 9 mike mike, you're not pushing them fast enough to need a gas check.

Just know the signs of lead build-up.

Keep it clean and you're GTG.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Can't be any dirtier than my cast reloads using Unique. Since your not using in a gun with Polygonal rifling, there shouldn't be much to worry about. Aside from a bit of leading.

The Tulammo will be perfectly fine for what you are wanting it for. Where i live its $9.99 a box at wally world. The next cheapest "better quality" ammo is the winchester white box.
