    Nylon Coated Lead for .40?

    Has anyone tried these Nylon coated rnds. Apparently they are lead with a nylon coat and far cheaper than FMJ.

    I'm only guessing, but logic tells be it would gum up my barrel as the nylon melts going thru at high speed as well as
    pieces perhaps depositing in hard to reach places?

    Same here, I have heard about these and I am interested in knowing more, but not in being the guinea pig...Hexagonal rifling has enough issues with lead hard cast rounds, nylon is a total unknown.

    Been making Nyclad bullets for 40 years with no issues.
