What is Leading?

September 4, 2009
Lubricated and Sealed

Lubricated and Sealed to reduce leading.

If a bullet is shot at too high of a velocity, the pressure and firing power placed on the bullet when the hammer hits the bullet casing causes the end of the bullet to melt.  That melted lead is shoved through the chamber causing “leading” of the chamber. A barrel that has a high amount of residue or “leading” will not shoot accurately and could result in injury to shooter or weapon.

We don’t want this to happen to you. Meister Bullet and Ammunition Company recommends a shooting velocity of 1000 fps for pistols and 1600 fps on rifles to minimize leading.  To further protect your barrel, we use a specially formulated lubrication for our bullets. As a final safeguard, we seal our bullets with a specialized sealant.  Meister Bullet uses the highest quality lead alloy composition for all of our lead bullets.

Meister Bullet and Ammunition Company has perfected the art of casting over the past 20+ years to ensure the best composition, hardness and uniformity for optimum shooting.  To learn more about our bullet alloy composition, hardness and lubricant, visit the articles section of our Website.
