    Brilliant post, DougGuy.
    This is what I had to do to my Para GI Expert 45ACP to get it to run.

    A gunsmith here in OZ, Victor Oliveria at Victor Precision, cuts the absolute best chambers to suit coated bullets.
    Afterall, 90% of all handgun bullets fired in OZ are coated lead, with copper plated next. Very few use actual jacketed rounds.
    Hooroo.
    Regards, Trevor.

    OP here with an update. I haven't been able to shoot them yet, but I have loaded up 100 each of the two bullets I was talking about: Bayou Bullets .38 cal. 124 Gr. RN and Blue Bullets 9mm 125 Gr TC, both sized to .358. I was afraid that I would have to load the Blue Bullets really short, but they ended up being .045 longer than I have been loading my homemade boolits, and the seating depth is almost identical. I made a few dummy rounds first and pulled the bullets to make sure there was no swaging and that the coating wasn't being scratched off, and everything looks good so far. Now I just have to find time to get to the range to try them out....

    Nice. I bought a 130gr 2r rn mold from mihec. Just coated and sized a batch today. I've got to make another expander plug (hopefully tonight) so I can load a few and again, hopefully shoot a few this week. Fingers crossed I've got all the boxes ticked now.
