Now I Know you shouldn't shoot copper than lead but can you shoot lead and then copper? Is this what they call hot lapping is it not good for your gun? I just recieved eight boxes of ammo to test through my 1911 45acp.Some are full metal jacket some hollow point some semi wad cutter or flat nose, most are copper but I also ordered lead and I want to know if I can shoot all of this without cleaning the bore.Or what?

Scrub the bore first regardless of which one you're switching to. Your barrel will thank you later.

Moving this topic to the ammunition forum.
