They are cheap. Buy more expensive bullets or tumble them. I don't see a problem.

Pretty much every box of XTPs I have bought has some corn cob in the pack. I will take some corn cob over oily bullets any day.

I just got done with 4 boxes of Hornady's XTP bullets, not a spec of corn cob in any of them. Last week I loaded up 2 other calibers of XTP bullets... and again no corn cob?

Not sure what to tell ya there.

Yup, pretty soon people on this site will be saying Glocks suck because they eject the brass too far to the right and PD bullets suck because they're too inexpensive and shoot too straight.

Not too shabby there my man!

Any sign of over/under burn from that powder (True Blue)?

With the powders I mentioned earlier that I have tested with the 124g FMJ RN bullet, I use 1.135" OAL. My G17 & G19 seem to like it.

Now these powders I have used are just a bit faster burning (but not much) then TB, but If you decrease your OAL slowly you will see if it makes a difference or not.

Thanks for the update... Good luck & be safe.
It's very clean and seems to burn thoroughly

Mine ejects it onto my head. I have thought about gluing a bowl to my head to catch the brass.

Apparently they are sending all the corn cob to PA and not giving Ohio any.
