View Full Version : Is doubletap hard cast ammo lead?
Looks like a great woods round but I'm wondering if it is lead. I want something to shoot in my G20 stock barrel but don't want to shoot lead. Anybody know?
Yes, they are lead. I guess some people use them in limited quantities in their stock Glock barrels (making sure to clean carefully after a certain number of rounds), and others use them in after market Glock barrels.
Hard cast lead in a Glock shouldn't pose any special problems, particularly if the bullets are gas checked.
Where you run into problems with Glocks is where softer lead bullets come into play.
:) Lead with a touch of silver!
I bought a box "for fun" but unfortunately I had some feeding issues with them. That said, I bought some new 5th gen magazines and came to realize how weak the ones I got with the gun really were. (Bought it used off Gunbroker.com with 7 mags). I have yet to buy another box and test them out.
After 20 rounds I could see small amounts of lead in the barrel. After a couple of good scrubbings though it seems fine, just keep the barrel cleaned up after you shoot a bunch.
