Is it ok to shoot Bayou bullets out of a Glock stock barrel, or will it lead up the barrel?

I have about about 7500 through a stock G17 barrel.  Other than occasionally dry brushing the chamber I have not cleaned the barrel.  There is no noticeable build up of any kind and no degradation in performance that I can detect.

I've shot several thousand Bayou Bullets in my G21. Both 230 gr. and 200 gr. SWC. Clean, very clean.

I  have run them in 9mm, .10mm, and .45ACP, all Glocks,  with no leading problems at all.  I have found them to be very accurate as well.  I really like not having a cloud of smoke when you shoot them.

So would this also apply to the SNS casting bullets that are coated?  Seeing as they are allegedly the same coating as the Bayou stuff?

I have shot a limited amount of SNS golden bullets in 45 and 9mm and so far so good.  I also have some .38's to try out.
