    I meant do GLOCKS.

    If so, which model and which brand/type of ammunition?

    I just ordered a CZ 75 Sp01 and I've been reading that some CZs can have troubles with certain ammo brands, mostly due to bullet length.

    I think of my Sigs and Glocks as indiscriminate eaters. Then again, I don't ever use steel or aluminum cased ammo, only FMJ or JHP with a brass jacket and plated bullet. I wouldn't like to own a 9mm that wouldn't eat any Blazer, Remington, Federal, Winchester WB, etc. that I could buy off the shelf, so long as it was brass.

    My neighbor, who is a very experienced handloader, told me that he replicated the data of lawman JHP and it wouldn't chamber in a Glock 17. This is somebody who is very well versed in reloading and who's opinion I take very seriously.

    So that brings me to the question...are Glocks picky about any kind of ammo? If so, what kind?
    :)

    As of yet, I haven't found anything that my 26 won't digest properly. Remington, Federal, Winchester, Speer, a few off brands, FMJ, JHP, +P and standard pressure have all cycled with no problems.

    Not in my Glocks. You'll hear of people having problems that are ammunition related. But, not very often. That is why people use them. They will eat anything, and a lot of it.

    No problems yet: 9mm, .357Sig, .40S&W, .45ACP with lots of brands and many thousand rounds. I've also run 9mm and .40 reloads with zero issues. What can I say, they just love to eat! ;)

    A G26 is probably the Glock I shoot the most and have have never had issues with any ammunition including steel and aluminium cased ammunition. I have had no issues with Lawman through it and have also run Lawman through a G17 and G34 without issues.

    The only Glock feeding problem that I am aware of was cause by early Gen 4 40 S&W and some 357 sig magazines.

    It is the only feeding problem I've ever experienced with any Glock in any caliber over the years.
    When cartridge over all lengths are kept in normal ranges Glocks normally feed like popcorn through a goose. SJ 40

    So far mine have ate everything I have ever tried in them. My 19 even likes steel cased stuff.

    A very few reports of G23 and 165 gr HST hanging up on the ramp. That could have been an out of spec condition on a single Lot of HST.

    My 17 & 21 don't seem to care what you put in them.

    If your neighbor's rounds will not chamber in a G17, then his rounds are out of spec.

    My new Gen 4 17 has had a problem w/ both Federal 115gr and Winchester 115gr (3 FTFs and a several FTEs in 100 rounds of Federal and 2 FTFs and 14 FTEs in 200 rounds of Winchester), but those are all I've tried so far.

    Seems like there's something in the equation of weapon and shooter that's causing the issue rather than ammo, but haven't had an opportunity to try anything else yet.

    The only problem I've ever had was very short, SWC reloads in my G21.

    I can't think of any problems with factory ammo in any of the 9mm, .40 or .45 Glocks I've owned.

    Bought a new OEM G33 357 Sig barrel for my gen 3 G27.
    Speer GDHP 125 gr duty 357 Sig ammo nose dives bad.
    Totally locks the gun up every other mag.
    My Sig Sauer P239/357 ran the same ammo, out of the same box, like candy.
    Then I swapped the Glock OEM G33 barrel with a Storm Lake G27-357 barrel.
    And then G27 ran GDHPs without issues.
    Should have sent the barrel back to Glock to resolve.
    But just moved on.

    The OEM Glock G33 barrel did feed Federal Tactical JHPs fine.

    The G27 with OEM 40 barrel will run anything.
    With Storm Lake barrels in 9mm, 357 Sig and 40 S&W absolutely anything.

    My G26 will digest what ever comes cheaper for range practice!
    Corbon 115+P is my carry choice!

    One of my carry G19 wouldn't feed the older Corbon 115+P with the Sierra JHP with 100% reliability, but all 3 of my carry Glocks feed the Fed 9BPLE 100%.

    Of all the 9mm fodder I've shot the only problem I've had was with the Silver Bear 145JHP.
