Bullets

I've heard for years not to use lead bullets in a Glock barrel, but really never understood "why not".

I had a Storm Lake barrel in my Glock 22, so it wasn't an issue.

I am wondering if hard cast bullets were any different in a Glock barrel ?

I one day tested everything in my G19. Even hand cast and some weird czech tracer round. No damage, no problems ever. Maybe I was lucky but I just wanted to see.

the rifling in the Glock barrel is not the deep grooves type.

there is no space for the lead to go.

it is much easier to lead foul and create excess pressures.

I have reloaded and shot lead in 10mm, 40 S&W and 9mm Glocks. Never had a problem but must use common sense when reloading.

I used to shoot

Hard-cast 150gr bullets out of my G17 at about 850 FPS - never a problem.

As a a newbie, by "lead" you mean an exposed lead projectile and not a FMJ. Right?

We use Luger FMJ for target practice and are under the impression this is what is most recommended.
