Do leadless and regular leaded ammo perform the same?

What is the benefit of leadless ammo?

I'm looking at the Fiocchi 9mm in particular.

Thanks.

Hello. It just depends on the alloy being used in the homogeneous bullets. The copper bullets made by Barnes for Corbon's DPX work great from what I've seen and the bullets seem to lose less mass during expansion than some conventional hollowpoints in which the separate jacket can separate or break into pieces. On the other hand, the Aguila IQ hollow point has performed erratically for me and others from what I've seen.

Best.

I personally believe the technology has yet to be perfected. With all due respect to Mr. Camp and others who trust this stuff, I personally won't go near a homogeneous bullet unless lead is the material.

This might change in years to come, but I'm a bit set in my ways. I'm a Taurus handgun fan and I won't even touch their line.

Just my 2 cents.
