Lead has its own lub in the lead so it may not effect a lead pellet unlike the mix of today, see what this throughs up.
Contrary to most people's belief , lead is not self lubricating, the confusion seems to be around lead in fuel, which was used for its octane boost and cushioning effect, but it was a lead compound, not lead per se.
