Got a decent deal on some 380 ammo but they're LRN, lead round nose. Anyone know if the 380 has issues with those beside the fact that i need to clean the barrel more often?

I have never shot or handled a PK380, but I have shot hard cast and swaged lead bullets in handguns for years. There should be 0 issues at the velocities that a 380 can produce.

I am handloading lead RN ammo for mine. Once I found a good load (3.3 grains of Bullseye) It fires great although there seems to be so spit back from them. Not sure exactly what is going on there unless some lead is peeling, I dont get that with jacketed rounds. In general just clean the barrel and you should be fine.
