They are really soft. If you break the skin you will get leading. Even worse then on a regular lead bullet. They take a good barrel and proper loading to work right.

Real pain in the keister. I went through a box of 500. They ran ok, but they had to be loaded with much more care. They did fly through the air just fine, but I was getting leading pretty bad in my G21.

Crimping in a second step is absolutely necessary so as not to scrape off the moly(ish) coating.

Even before I was casting my own, I'd rather buy straight lead.

I got to try a sample pack of Precisions in 9mm and agree with Zombie Steve's comments too soft. I use Bear Creek which has a harder, less messing coating. ZERO leading out of my Spartan 9mm running a 135g RN at 950-980 Fps. My local distributed sells then for $28 for 500 if you buy at least 1500.

As the others have said, they can be made to work, but I would rather shoot a good cast lead bullet than the Prec Balck. Knick the base or over crimp & accuracy goes to poop.
