Its bc the cast lead bullets clog the gas ports. By lead they mean bullets made from pure lead made out of wheel weights or some such.Okay, so I saw on another post that someone mentioned not to shoot lead bullets out of the old Ruger Deerstalker .44mag carbine. Anyone know why and I am not sure I understand what they mean by lead bullet, I thought must ammo was made from lead?
I am just using a bulk soft nose, semi jacketed hollow point, sitting on 22 gr imr 4227 for hunting. I have used the hornadys in the past with good results....its just previous to this season, for whatever reason(s), they decided to hit low on the first shot.FMJ, what type of ammo are you using with your deerstalker? Did you stick with Hornaday?
