Being lead instead of a copper jacket, Yes they do leave more residue but it's not noticeable. You've got to clean your gun anyway so shoot some great ammo and then clean away.

More residue left over "if equal quality primer/propellant" can only mean it's the lubricant applied to both Blazer/Mini Mag's that acts as a glue in the bore. Blazer may have a bit more stick. Note: Blazer and Mini Mag solid 40 grain are both equal velocity.

"Jacket"?

Mini Mag LR's are Plated. A jacket is an entirely different animal.

I thought they were copper washed.

OK Al.....Ya had to go there didn't ya!

Got a laugh this afternoon out of this. Too many automobile parts needing a shine treatment right Al!

As long as you have humorously approached the subject I'd say that those using the term "Wash" could have some correctness being that the term can describe the thickness or lack of thickness of the applied metal to 22 rimfire S,L,LR bullets.

But as you know Wash is not "the" process where it concerns the application of Copper/Brass to 22 S,L,LR bullets. The correct term for the "process" is Plating.
