Default Semi Jacketed Soft Point lead fouling and compensator question

When shooting such projectiles specifically in a 500 SW Magnum, is there any concern with lead fouling and more importantly spitting lead out of the compensators? This Pertains with which compensator should be used when shooting it through the 4 model 500. I.e. use the lead or jacketed compensator as these federal fusion 325 gr rounds are semi jacketed (and of course 500 SW Magnum is a high pressure round). Manual does not specify which one for semi jacketed rounds.

The is no issue with shooting lead or jacketed through either compensator.

That said the comp designated for use with lead will be much easier to remove should lead accumulate in the ports.

If your gun is spiting lead there is an issue with timing, forcing cone, or bullet sizing.

Thanks, no just wondering which compensator to use with these new rounds.

Your comp will stay a lot cleaner if you spray into it with Dillon Case Lube or welding anti spatter before you shoot, and then about every 50 rounds.
