    I suspect that the coating process was not done correctly or shaving during losding. Iíve shot thousands of HT coated from Bayou and Acme and the smoke level is nowhere near regular lead. Never got leading either even at .357Sig speeds.

    M882 and other standard shape 9mm FMJ bullets are well known to have one or two yaw cycles that will limit their penetration. A flat nosed projectile will usually remain point forward during penetration.
