I shoot Fiocchi FMJ from my carbine (blow back). Burns cleaner than Winny or Remington.
Its good stuff. Ammoman has lots of it.

Most LE indoor ranges, and many outdoor ranges as well, now require lead-free primers and base coated/plated bullets to keep down lead contamination. The ammo generally is less reliable and more expensive than "standard" stuff, even bought in bulk...as in 100,000 round lots. The absolute cleanest pistol ammo I have ever fired was the Ranger Talon in .45...unbelievable! The empty case looked almost unfired inside! I believe I would try something from WW since they use a lot of ball powder in various loads and ball seems to burn a bit cleaner than IMR or other stuff. Lead is the real danger, however, and without lead free primers, etc. the only thing you are doing is minimizing airborne powder contaminates.

The aluminum cased Blazer is really clean in my .45s and 9mms. The brass cased Blazer sucks and is copper coated instead of copper jacketed.
