    I have 2,500 170gr .40 bullets from Precision Bullets on hand.

    www.precisionbullets.com

    They're coated in some sort of "dry lube" polymer coating.

    Here's the deal. I need to work up a pretty hot .40 load to make major power factor for USPSA. Are these bullets safe in an OEM Glock 35 barrel or do I need to either get a KKM barrel or sell these bullets and use jacketed?

    I read that, but real world experience is way more convincing.

    I had bad luck with them in my G34. Get a small batch and try. Thats the only way your going to know.

    Hot loads and the 40 don't mix. Use 180's and either power pistol or longshot.
     
  9. for any glock 40 no matter what bullet used,,when using reloads i would use an after market barrel. i like and use kkm. it is better safe than sorry. also i use after market (kkm) in 9mm and 45acp. i shoot cast lead reloads 98% of the time in my glocks.

    I'm getting some 180gr lead bullets and a Lone Wolf barrel. They won't be HOT loads. Major power factor reloads are actually lighter than factory ammo. They just won't be powderpuff loads. :tongueout:

    Hopefully that is a typo and you meant 170 gr. What you really need to ask yourself is, how much shooting am I going to be doing and would it be cheaper to use the bullet I have and get a different barrel or sell these and go with jacket bullets? Dollar wise the moly bullets and a different barrel would be cheaper but drop in barrels are not always accurate. Also moly bullets will smoke more than jacketed and lots more than hollow points. Based on what I saw at the Nationals, I would suggest a different barrel and shoot lots of lead or moly and smoke be damned.

    Lizard is a Montana Gold distributor. So we get $5 off the 3 case price (or some such thing). It saves a little money so I use that.

    The guy that bought them isn't shooting them in a Glock.
