NB!! It is inevitable that handgun barrels which have a non-conventional internal profile to have extremely tight tolerances. Therefore be extremely careful when cast projectiles are used in combination with these. Make sure of the barrel diameter, and ensure a proper match between projectile and barrel diameter, and note any tendancy of lead fouling.
