    Which brand would you recommend?
    How much does it cost?
    Where is it available?

    I'm tired of looking for and paying extra for FMJ and teflon reloads!
    I have a Glock 19 nga pala and i wanna start using lead.

    Thanks BOGs!

    You can use copper coated reloads instead of FMJs and teflons. Try Stronghand. Never had a problem with their 9mm reloads when I used to own a G19.

    alexii: thanks for the info. i actually tried 200 rounds of copper coated factory loads from trustrade and they fouled up the far end of my barrel after around 70 rounds. Hindi na kita yung grooves and grey na yung buong lip. Is this normal or are the copper coated heads of trustrade just crappy?

    Does anyone have any experience with teflon reloads from jethro? I ordered 100 pcs from them just to try them out.

    Can't say anything about Trust Trade reloads (they reload?) as I haven't tried them. Though I had my share of caked bores as you had experienced from ammos bought in a range.

    My experience with Stronghand reloads have been largely positive. I believe it's among the cleanest reloads around. On a side note, for extra reliability, use your 9mm shells exclusively for your Glock 9mm. My 9mm shells fired from my Beretta wouldn't chamber in the Glock.

    not if your reloader uses EGW undersize die for resizing and/or the lee factory crimp die (or both). my shells are used for both my cz and my glock. the only difference is that, after about 5 cycles of reloads, the shells would only be suitable for cz;)

    Meron na ba TMJ sa 1st option?

    bikethief, look at the Gun Store Directory at the top for 1st option address and contact info.

    Apparently, Stronghand does not seem to use them if that's the case. It's always been my experience since the beginning. Buti na lang di vice-versa: I can use Glock-fired shells in my Beretta.:) But Beretta to Glock, different story.
