Sometimes quality jacketed bullets cost more than twice what cast/moly flat points do ($60/k); for that reason, a LoneWolf barrel (typically $99!), conventionally rifled, would 'pay for itself' within as little as 2,000 rounds.....(thru savings!)

(The LW bbls, which have slightly smaller diameter chambers (.001" at least!), give higher velocity than most Glock bbls anyway, allowing .1 gr less powder, another $1 saved per 1,000 rounds!

It's not the polygonal rifling that makes the Glock barrels prone to lead fouling. It's the Tenifer surface treatment of the barrels that makes them more prone to lead fouling. There are plenty of non-Tenifer finish polygonal rifled barrels that work fine with lead bullets and don't foul any more than other types of rifling. With a Glock barrel the lead fouling can be a problem with some lead bullets.

Tenifer treated polygonal rifled barrels not for lead bullets. (made in Austria)

I agree...
My latest acquisition a used but excellent condition Storm Lake .40 S&W barrel for my G23 paid $65 delivered.
Montana Gold 180g FMJ bullets $122 - 139 for 1K delivered depending on whether you buy just a thousand or a case of 2500.
Unique precision 180g LFP, lubed and ready to load. $60.50 delivered ( buying 2K at flat rate postage)

I've paid for the barrel is one thousand rounds of savings. How can you go wrong?

I've been lerking on this site for quite a while now and I don't think I've even made my first post yet till now. I think I've bitten my tongue long enough.
I guess I will start it with a question. How many lead reloads can I shoot through my G35 before it goes kaboom? The reason I ask is because I'm pushing my 2000th lead reload and its still functions flawlessly so I have to be getting close.
This wasn't without some trial and error though to find the right combination. Two bullets that I have had extremly good luck with are laser cast and redline. Now I use redline exclusively. Namely their 180gn FP. I spoke with the owner of the company and he says his bullets are between a 20 and 21 bhn hardness. I've found that this bullet works great with Unique, Bullseye, and Titegroups powders pushed to moderate to fast volicities. When I take it out I usually put 150 to 200 rounds through it per session then inspect the barrel carefully before cleaning. Guess what, no leading....just a couple of passes with some Hopps #9 and put her up until next weekend.
Ok now for question #2. I just purchased a G21 and plan on shooting lead through it too so does anyone have any good receipes for it?

My G23 and G35 like my reloads. No lead though.
