lead bullets for a G30 ?

Since the G30 doesn't like lswc bullets, what shape bullets will feed reliably ? round nose, truncated cone etc. flat point ?

Stick with the traditional 230 RN and you will be much happier. The feed ramp/rails of the model 30 are little different than the 21. It will not feed the wide diversity of shape the 21 will.

Something like the Xtreme 230 RN or the Bayou 230 RN, 4.6 grains of WST and whatever primer is on sale will give excellent results for a cost effective practice and match load.

Hope this helps

200 round nose works just as well as 230gr round nose for me.

I didn't have much luck with SWC in Glocks.

Just about any bullet style will work except the swc or wad cutter. For punching holes in paper 185 or 200gr will work just fine. Why shoot more expensive 230 grain bullets? I like X-treme or Bayou bullets.

I shot 10s of thousands of this load in my G30 when I had one:

230gr cast TC
6.0gr WSF
1.185" OAL
CCI #300

Accurate, easy on the gun, soft recoil, and fairly economical. Faster powder will use less powder for same velocity, but you get into lead unfriendly powders.

My g-30 feeds 230 grain round nose lead no problemo. I don't shoot them anymore, however, as the barrel is very difficult to clean with lead.
That I could be wrong is an eventuality that has not escaped me. I just painted the pictures as I saw them. I do not know how to do anything else. (Saint Elmer, 1955)

I use Magnus 215gr LSWCs and Magnus 230gr JHPs for range in my G21 gen4 and G30S(SF). I have not had a feeding problem with the rounds in either gun.
I have loaded some 230gr Hornady XTPs for SD/HD and they work well also.
The 215gr LSWCs are swaged bullets and do not seem to lead the barrels, I think they would be good SD round when heavy clothing is worn.
Have a Nice Day
