    I'm a newbie here. I have a Glock23c.

    Ano pong ang tamang reload specs ng bullet?

    Alam ko mas preferably teflon and FMJ.

    What about the gram, vel, gauge max and other SPECS ng reloa to remember?

    How will you know na SAFE pa i-reload ang brass mo?

    Thanks mga sirs...

    if you plan on using the stock barrel for your reloads, be very careful.I have personal experience of a kb in a glock 23,we were using once fired brass at the time.2 times nag KB yung glock 23, extractor lang naman nadamage.
    I have a 22c, I reload pero hanggang 2x fired brass lang, but everytime i shoot my gun with reloads I almost half expect na mag KKb ung baril ko.check this video out, this is the 2nd kb of my friends 23

    With the glock 17 you can reload til the brass cracks. Even on stock barrel. At least that's what most shooters say. So that's what I bought. No problems encountered so far. Been using TMJs. Oops sorry wrong glock model. :)

    i think that holds true for the 9mm glocks pipo, i dunno why really.

    i am quite baffled at why Kb!s happen on a .45acp glock also as the SAAMI pressure on those are lower than on a 9mm.

    the Kb!s on a .40S&W, well I guess the pressure is indeed high on those, it's a shortened but still potent 10mm norma for pete's sake, but is the pressure difference of SAAMI .40 and SAAMI 9mm that large of a difference?

    or is it the wrong questions that I am asking, pressure may be higher or lower but the volume is not the same...i mean a car tire only has 30 PSI but 4 of them can support the car and 5 passengers. anyway, things that one ponders when one doesn't get enough sex, i mean range time, when one does not get enough range time i suppose.

    its the barrel, yung 40s&w na glocks di supported sa 6 oclock position, it helps sa feeding & reliability, but very bad sa mga buntis na bala, sa 9mm glocks snug fit

    Sir Merc, yung bang G23 na nagKB stock na barrel ang gamit?


    What do you prefer if you want to use reload in your G23

    1) Convert it to 9mm, buy a conversion barrel
    "kaso lang bibili ka pa ng extra 9mm mags"

    2) Buy an aftermarket barrel for 40.
    Ok ba to?

    Reply mga sirs...

    stock ang malimit mag KB,..

    1)pa reload ka sa reputable na shops, like tru-power or sa tru weight... chk your shells for cracks, gauge mo every reload kung buntis...bili ka imported na basyo, they tend to last longer

    2)ok sya....price is not ok....14k-16k for an after market barrel just to fire reloads, think about it... bili nalang ako single stack

    iwas ka nalang sa mga reloads from indoor ranges...di mo alam ilang gamit na yun shells at kung buntis na....corkage nalang kayo..

    Just to add, use the slower powder N340 instead of N320 to minimize case pressure. I know JuDGe has a recipe for N340, you can try to send him a PM.

    bakit 9 pa, convert na lng sa 357 sig he he he.
    ups, higher pressure round pala he he.at least you dont have to change mags, puede ung 357 sig sa 40 mag.

    On KB, as i heared marami nyan sa 40 ingat lang sa reloads, as what the others say do some reaseach and look for reputable company doing reloads.

    On Conversion from one caliber to another, nahhh ill just buy two pistol with different calibers just to avoid any mishap.
    But whatever makes you happy do it.
