    exactly. instead of lead or copper fouling it would be aluminum fouling.

    There was a fad in the 70's with people casting bullets from babbit. I tried some in a 22 Hornet but was not impressed. Caused no problems though.

    Jackets are one thing, solid aluminum is another. You don[t need to PRACTICE with the aluminum bullet loads, you know. :) When firing for your life, galling in your rifling will be the least of your problems. :)

    My concern is more with getting a hot load jammed in the barrel.

    It's a free country, if you choose to borrow trouble with

    aluminum loads, nobody can stop you.


    But I neither use, nor recommend them.

    Bullets are either lead, or copper jacketed for

    a reason.
