Anyone ever used this ammo before or ever seen brass jacketed bullets before? My question is, Can I safely shoot this ammo with it's brass jacketed bullets out of my gen 4 Glock 21? Any issues using brass bullets with Glock's polygonal rifling like there is with lead bullets??
Well amigo. #1, I looked at their web site and under 45acp FMJ, the pics show all copper bullets, and they use a copper XTP in their SD offerings... Doesn't matter even if the bullet itself is brass, as tons of Remington "Golden Sabers," (brass bullets"), have been fired through Glocks and everything else for years.
Short answer..Brass bullets will not harm your Glock Barrel
My other suggestion is, buy a better quality, or more heard of brand name. I don't shoot hardly any factory loads, cause I hand load all my own stuff. I see no 'cosmetic' reason to worry about the ammo you bought at all.. How they shoot and who loaded them is another story, Can't help ya there.
Just a suggestion. Try to stick with Remiongton, or Speer or Winchester. Again, from what I 'see", on their sight nothing is going to hurt your barrel, even if their brass bullets
or copper.. that is ok !
I don't like brass bullets, and never have.. Just me, but they aren't going to tear up your barrel. Be more concerned about who loaded them and how they shoot.
Anyone selling Ted Nugent ammo, (which these folks do), I would not support !
Go shoot and have fun.
