Now that that's over and done with, I think it's a bit of a personally pretends. It could also be that the solid led rounds might leave a waxy residue in the barrel that fills the rifling and causes the bullet to key hole when/if it hits the target, it could also be because it leave more gunk in the rifles barrel......or it could just be he prefers copper plated simply because he like it. Haha
Well I pretty much figure it's something along one of those lines if not all, but I just wanted hear from Sniper03 on it. He always seems to very knowledgeable about this sort of thing and I usually learn something when he posts. So it would be nice to hear his reasoning on this.
I've always shot both lead and copper plated in a .22, but I always thought that copper plated bullets should be a little more accurate at least in theory. Copper is much denser and I would think more consistent when it engages the rifling, and less prone to send out a flier? But that's just speculation.
