The Hornady load is worth a try and if not for liability issues (real or urban legend) they could be in my mag.
For SD I got a bulk (250) pack of Speer 200gr GDs. At the time, the price was too good to pass up. Now, I don't know.
For practice/target you could go several ways. Hi-line would be FMJ bullets. You could load them as strong as SD HPs. Have not looked lately, the FMJ may cost nearly as much as HPs.
Since plain lead is a no-no, look into copper plated lead bullets. Reasonable price vs. jacketed. But I would keep loads moderate or less. My opinion only.
OK, Glock says no lead and I would not use the 'old style' plain lead with lube in a grouve either. But Glock also says no reloads - so...
I'm working on some target loads using moly coated lead bullets. http://www.billybullets.com/
Loaded to 'target' levels, I have had no problems. For frequent shooting, these locally (gun show) available bullets fit my retired budget just fine. Sometimes I read the 45 ACP section and some of them use 'coated' lead of one type or another too.
dave - and sometimes I drive over the speed limit
