I suppose I could keep two different types of ammo, but that isn't something I want to do. I already have 16 different calibers/gauges
They can leave lead fouling on the feed ramps, but that's easy to clean.
Meanwhile, I have had no less than TWO 14.5" Colt barrels (pinned/welded, of course) that grouped just fine with 55 grain ammo at 100 yards using an Aimpoint M2. Some guns will do fine, some will not.
