    Have you tried them using harder lead, and if so how did they shoot?

    I tried 1 part WW and 2 parts pure lead in my good load, and it did not shoot as well. In fact, groups opened up to about twice the usual size. I have not gotten systematic to see if there is another load that works as well as soft lead.
