I would much rather shoot my cast reloads out of any of my guns than shoot TulAmmo through anything but my AK/SKS. Make sure the bullet is "Hard Cast" and not swaged. Swaged lead is too soft for 9mm. A good hard cast bullet should not cause any undue leading of your Sigma

I have used 230 gr lead ammo in two HKs w polygonal rifleing w/o any ill effects. Bore snake seems to do the trick.

Owners manual did say to avoid steel bore brushes which irritated me because I already had a few that we're supposed to simplify clean up.

My gun club requires lead only ammo for their indoor range. PIA as its hard to find 9mm lead ammo.

Tul ammo I saw some of that but it was a dollar more than the lead stuff at cabellas so I didn't know which way to go

All things are not equal and reloaders can use cleaner burning powders. Unfortunately, most of the stuff you see for sale has the cheapest powder they can buy.

You'll know what you have the first time you pull the trigger.

I shot TulAmmo the other day, that stuff stinks (literally!)! I'd rather pay the extra $0.50 for Federal.
