Correct me if I'm wrong. Hot factory or handloaded ammo should be fine in an all stock G20 or G29.But I'd tend to worry if I used hot loads in a Glock barrel where I tried to tame the recoil by installing a stronger recoil spring. A tighter bore plus a looser chamber plus a hot charge being held in lockup longer by the stronger recoil spring equals out to more pressure than the gun was designed for. IMO. The factory spring will act as a relief valve for pressure build up. You set that spring tension higher to reduce the slide velocity and to keep the slide from wearing out the frame. Now your putting more pressure on the chamber, and one thats built looser for feed reliability. What happens to the brass?
