Re: proper bullet for 73 carbine

The best accuracy will be obtained with a fairly soft (16-1 or softer) bullet which fits (or is no more than .001" over) the GROOVE diameter of YOUR barrel. Factors which can lead to leading are hard bullets of less than ideal diameter, and incorrect lube. Others can expand (greatly) on this, I am sure.
