I use cast bullets from time to time. Mostly 147 gr LRN. I use it when I shoot steel. I prefer the jacketed bullets but some ranges I visit that have steel targets will only allow lead. Lead build up is no problem if you clean you pistol after shooting, which I do. The P99 does not have polygon rifling so shooting lead is no big deal.

I concur with Shipwreck (Well to a point). I too had a pistol blow up on me do to bad reloads from a friend. After that I got into reloading for myself. Hard lesson to learn, destroyed the gun but thankfully I was not hurt. I do not shoot anyone else's reloads. That is why I reload my own. Have been doing so for about 20 yrs and no problems.
