No problem at all.

Great choice for a press! You're going to love it.

Precision Delta has a sample pack of JHP bullets so I would buy a couple of thousand FMJ and just a sample of JHP.

You're going to need a lot of bullets to keep that 650 busy.

I doubt you'll have any feed issues with the 19. I've never had any issues with any ammo in my G26 or G17 (not a 19, but at least I bracket your size). You may have to play with OAL a little but I sure wouldn't expect any big problems.

There might be a feeding issue w/ one or two JHP designs, but the GLock will run happily on just about anything. If I were stuck w/ FMJ, I wouldn't be carrying a 9mm anyway. If you are orderin JHP to make your own SD loads, you have very few reliable choices: XTP, RGS, GDHP, that's about it. Anything else, consider practice bullets. IT is one problem rolling your own SD ammo, the better bullets are not available.

I forgot to mention ... my reloading rounds will only be used for range shooting.. my SD ammo I buy already loaded..

All I shoot through my Glock 19 is Precision Delta 124gr JHP and I've never had a single issue.

So if it's for paper punching, why bother w/ more expensive JHP?

My view...2 things you'll need to keep an eye on... OAL, load short most commercial JHPs are 1.130 or less and watch your crimp.

Never heard of JHP's not working in a Glock. I have tried a bunch of TC's (same shape as a JHP) and they all work unless they have a driving band/shoulder (which jhp's never have).

I burn through a few cases of Montana Gold 124 JHPs a year. No issues at all.

I don't think I can count the different JHP's I've run through my G17 and I've never had a malfunction. 124 and 147 XTP's, 115 Silvertips, 147 Ranger T's and SXT's, 147 OSM's, 124 GDHP, 125 Zeros. Pretty much any modern service gun will run any JHP. When you are dealing with HiPowers, 9mm 1911's and race guns, and some of the old military surplus guns, you might have issues with some bullets/ammo, but even then it's pretty infrequent.

ETA: I forgot about the 125 semi-jacketed HP's made for 38 Special that I ran through it without issue.

No Glock 19, but my 1981 Belgian Browning Hi-Power choked on hollow points at the range just yesterday. I had originally loaded this ammo for my 9mm AR-15, and haven't tried it in any other gun until yesterday. Guess I need to dig the AR out to finish up this crap, and go on to something more useful in the BHP.

Since I loaded 500 rounds of this ammo, this should serve as an example to try a box of bullets or ammo before you stockpile it!

Check out Stephan A. Camp's Hipowers and Handguns webpage for all things BHP. There are things that can be done to the BHP to make it run HP ammo but I don't know what they are. More current versions are supposed to run HP's just fine, so I don't think it's a big deal to get it modified.

Yes, an excellent site. This gun still has the 'hump' in the feed ramp, which is a known problem area. I'll probably remove the hump and try it again.

Stephen was a good man. Miss having him around.

Good choice on the press. I've used Montana Gold and Hornady XTP and never had a problem.

I am a rather brilliant surgeon, perhaps I can help you with that humpů

My G-17 has fed JHP, JSP, & FMJ with equal reliability (100%).
