    I'm pretty sure most, if not all, firearm manufacturers state not to use hand loaded ammunition in their firearms. And that doing so voids the implied factory warranty. Pay attention to what you're doing when reloading, and don't push your loads to the extreme, and there shouldn't be a problem.

    That is lawyer CYA talk to void their liability because of someone's stupidity or carelessness.

    I'd bet that my quality control is far better than WW or Fed.

    No, you see what happend to the gold fish you promised to feed!

    You can shoot lead through it if you clean out the barrel properly. I'm too lazy to risk it so I just use plated bullets for my game guns.

    That's true. Pure economics drives people to reload.

    I've been shooting my handloads in Glocks since about 1988? or so. And when I started, there wasn't any info about shooting lead in them, either. I can't imagine how many lead bullets I sent downrange in IPSC in my G19 and later a G17. Some were hardcast from local casters, and others were LEE TL bullets I cast myself from wheel weights.

    That G19 must have had around 30k rounds through it before I sold it and got the G21sf and G26.

    With the exception of periodic defense ammo, I shoot reloads out of my Glocks...1000s and 1000s. I couldn't venture to guess round counts anymore.

    Did you get much barrel leading?

    No. Never did. But just to cover myself I did buy a couple Lone Wolf barrels for my G26 and G21sf. But the G21SF was purchased for a 45 Super conversion. It's a six inch, 4 port barrel.

    I have a spare after-market barrel for my G17 also - for my lead bullet loads.

    I have 6 Glocks. Every one has over a thousand rounds through it.
    All reloads, mostly lead through the factory barrels.

    None have ever seen a factory loaded round.
