That's true. Pure economics drives people to reload.

I've been shooting my handloads in Glocks since about 1988? or so. And when I started, there wasn't any info about shooting lead in them, either. I can't imagine how many lead bullets I sent downrange in IPSC in my G19 and later a G17. Some were hardcast from local casters, and others were LEE TL bullets I cast myself from wheel weights.

That G19 must have had around 30k rounds through it before I sold it and got the G21sf and G26.

With the exception of periodic defense ammo, I shoot reloads out of my Glocks...1000s and 1000s. I couldn't venture to guess round counts anymore.

Did you get much barrel leading?

No. Never did. But just to cover myself I did buy a couple Lone Wolf barrels for my G26 and G21sf. But the G21SF was purchased for a 45 Super conversion. It's a six inch, 4 port barrel.

I have a spare after-market barrel for my G17 also - for my lead bullet loads.

I have 6 Glocks. Every one has over a thousand rounds through it.
All reloads, mostly lead through the factory barrels.

None have ever seen a factory loaded round.

Wow - that is quite a neat record.
