From 40 years of reloading experience:
If you are going to load lead bullets to velocities over 900 fps, purchase or make your own "hard cast" lead bullets. Do not use swagged pure lead bullets. Hard cast bullets should contain at least 15% tin and antimony.
SWC bullets dropped of this mixture can not be scored or scratched with a fingernail and I have loaded them up as fast as 1500 fps in .357 magnum casings and no leading. You can easily push .45 ACP's over 1000 fps with no leading. I have found then to be extremely accurate for shooting and extremely deadly on game.
