Some of the 185 gr .45acp loads are loaded light for target shooting, they are semi wadcutter shaped usually marked 'match'.
If its a load like that, it may simply be too light to reliably function in your Glock.

I've had similar issues with lightly loaded 9mm match ammo.

Just for a somewhat-related experience, out of the five Underwood 255gr HCFN I tried in my G30S, I got 3 failures to feed. I think it was a combination of the bullet shape and them being lead, getting hung up on my feed ramp, even though I had polished the feed ramp.

I am hoping that Buffalo Bore 230gr +P copper-jacketed flat points feed better, then I will have a good "woods round".

I tried some 185gr rds thru my G30sf (Gen3) and don't remember any problems (or if they had flat or round nose). About the only problem I've had was one jam with a reload (professional, not my own) that I had a bit of trouble clearing.

When the gun was new (2-3 years ago) I got a mis-fire stuck in the chamber that freaked me out. Don't really know why that happened and I CAREFULLY got it out with a wooden dowel and a lot of sweat! My G30sf has been the most problematic of 4 Glocks that I own/ed.
