a gunsmith here in Sweden and he says that copper bullets wear out a barrel faster than normal non-woven balls Swift, Wood Leigh, and others.

That's worth throwing the BS flag! That's a 100-yard penalty1!! Lead-core bullets are copper too so the barrel sees copper to steel friction regardless of the bullet type. If anything, a TSX or GMX bullet would cause less wear because they are banded resulting in less copper-to-steel area.

Ok!

Thanks for you reply!



This is a good topic of conversation that could discuss forever??? Confused

Stefan and Slim,
The jacket on lead core bullets is "guilding metal" - a brass or bronze alloy which is harder than copper but it is also very thin compared to a homogenous copper bullet. The newer banded copper bullets have relieved the added barrel stress as is evident in the lower copper fouling. Neither bullet will have an advantage where barrel wear is concerned with proper maintenance.
Copper bullets do not shoot well in all firearms - such as my 30-06 - but I can shoot jacketed bullets very well. Lead bullets without jackets are limited to a number of factors that include velocity and bore size/condition. I need to try paper patched bullets in my 30-06 just to see if they will shoot.

Thanks for your explanation!
