I've tried them a few times in my Ruger Mark IV 22/45 Lite and my Black Mamba. They work 100 % of the time. Not failures of any kind and accuracy is the same as Mini Mags.

I'd be interested on how poly coat works with suppressors.

Short range CCI cartridges.
Small game and fun shooting.
Not intended for precision paper punching.
Plastic coating does not hide irregularities on the bullets.

I shot the polymers in two Steel Challenge Matches with no troubles at all. Accuracy is good enough to hit an 18 X 24 steel target at 35 yards. What I like about Steel Challenge is that the targets are big.

The ones I'm referring to are poly coated LEAD.

I like big targets because bullets are so small!

Absolutely the cleanest solution to shooting through a can.

No more lead residue to clean from the baffles. Only a bit of carbon that comes off easily in the sonic cleaning tank with a bit of Dawn.

It's all I use now through my silencer.

With all these positive replies, I'm glad I bought a brick of them when I has the chance. Sorry I didn't buy 2....or 3!

You might try doing a search. Many shooters, including me, consider these just about worthless for target shooting, esp. the red, white, and blue Patriot which I gave away. Bought a case of the Christmas red/green and after a few outings, Calamity refused to shoot them being so inaccurate. Finally gave them away too. Didn't see anything "cleaner" with any of them, except possibly with a little less carbon in the barrel. I never get lead in any of my barrels. Chamber gets as dirty as with any CCI round. I paid close attention to any polymer in the barrel, but found none. Maybe the "clean" uses a different powder/primer otherwise it's just another sales gimmick.

Well, I could always shoot them in my pistols, in which case they don't need to be very accurate.
