    +1 to the suggestion of 9MX. And if you want to spend less effort in cleaning your barrel after shooting, use teflon heads or copper coated.

    Copper coated is plated and is different from fmj. Mas mura rin sya. Meron sa stronghand.

    If someone wants to shoot fmj, the cheapest reloader would be Armscor. 6.00 each per fmj reload, you provide your own shells.

    In my experience, copper coated bullets leaves more leading than lead bullets in my Glock 17.

    Use teflon or fmj bullets if you have an original Glock barrel. Better yet, if your budget allows, buy an aftermarket barrel for your G17.

    KKM and Barsto are good after market barrels.

    But be aware, if you use after market barrel, and IF the Range Officer catches you, you will be bumped off to open division from production division....

    But you can use the aftermarket for practice and use the stock for competition.

    20.1 Aftermarket magazines which match the external dimensions of standard magazines offered by the OFM
    for the approved handgun are permitted.
    20.2 Aftermarket sights of the same type and kind offered by the OFM for the approved handgun are
    permitted, provided their installation and/or adjustment requires no alteration to the handgun.
    20.3 Aftermarket grips which match the profile of the OFM standard for the approved handgun and/or the
    application of tape on grips is permitted, however, rubber sleeves are prohibited."

    +1...

    Specifically, copper coated heads made by Stronghand. Their plating is too thin and soft.
