    How's it going folks. My first post here.

    How bad is leading in a comped revolver? I was thinking of buying this, a S&W Performance Center .45 with unfluted cylinder:

    I reload Black Bullet International (those moly coated lead ones) rounds and I'm thinking the comps might make a mess. This looks like it was once a factory custom, so I'm guess there has to be more examples of this out there.

    I'm also thinking of getting this too, price doesn't seem too bad. Another S&W PC .45ACP revolver but with those crazy funky looking grips and weird lug cut.

    It'd be awesome if anyone had either or have experience with .45ACP revolvers. Or thoughts in general about .45 ACP revolvers. I've been wanting a S&W Model 19 due to nostalgia factor or a Colt Python for cool factor, but don't think I'll be shooting as much as a caliber that I'm already shooting heavily with and buy plenty of component in bulk. And regardless of caliber, revolver shooting (and lots of it) is what I want to do in the end.
