    Anyone consistently shoot straight lead swaged or hard cast suppressed with no problems?

    I’ve run several thousand rounds of HiTek coated lead 147’s through a suppressed sub gun. It leads up the baffles even with the coating on it. The “DIP” is the only solution to get them cleaned off.

    Shooter Choice lead remover? And how long between cleanings? I definitely don't want a baffle strike. I stock up on 200SWC so in a pinch I may opt to use them or if cleaning isn't a pain I may use them a little more frequently.

    Shooting a 1911 and a full auto MP5 are going to be completely different beasts. You’d probably be fine but for blasting bullets plated at pretty cheap.
