I can confirm, it's the pesky CCI ammo that's causing the lead fouling. I went to the range this morning, after 150 shots, I started to notice black smoke, followed by POI shift, as in I can't hit a 12 inch target at 12 yards. I can see islands of lead in the middle of the barrel and at the crown

I fired 15 rounds of CCI Stinger (dang that ammo is loud), as fast as I could, and the barrel was clean !!!

I then used copper washed CCI and remington with no problem, POI back to normal

So far, this new CCI is the crappiest ammo I have used, it can't even touch Remington golden turds (the smoke smells nice too).
