Is it every round blows the base, or just intermittent? Any bulging on rounds that don't blow apart? Any cracking?
The point is a guy is asking if a Gen 4 is causing his reloads to fail. Problem is with reloads. Not the Glock.
Just start noticing how often people having issues are shooting reloads or using non-OEM parts or mods
You will see a pattern.
I shoot my .45 reloads out of my 21SF all the time. Thousands and thousands of rounds, no blown cases. Two squibs (my bad), but no blown cases.Probably true. I reload for rifles/revolvers but shoot nothing other that factory in my Glocks. I've heard of others having issues so I just avoided it altogether. Plus, my Glocks are used for carry and I don't wish for any legal issue over carry ammo.
I've shot thousands of rounds of 45acp using range brass loaded and loaded again. There is nothing wrong with range brass. A visual inspection prior to loading is all I do. I surmise 9mm isn't much different. It's not like its rifle cases which should get a specific number of reloading because each firing requires trimming the neck.Range brass uhm... no. Not only should you not fired a round that you don't know where it came from, but don't shoot range brass either. You have NO IDEA what that brass has gone through.
Also, why come here insinuating that it is an issue with the glock when you haven't even tried factory ammo with it? If it shoots factory without issue, but your reloads keep blowing up... it's likely your reloads, and then you can at least start your journey of information from an honest position.
But I digress.
Except 9mm, per SAAMI specs, can produce nearly twice the pressure of standard .45 ACP... but hey, it's all the same, right?I've shot thousands of rounds of 45acp using range brass loaded and loaded again.

Would you ignore range brass as a possibility if you were blowing cases?I own nine Glocks. Except for my SD ammo I don't think seven have ever had factory ammo put through them. I also load brass I find all the time. I'm not pushing the limits with my reloads though. Only guns I have loaded hot for are 10mm.
Good information in the replies. I would double check everything. Also running some factory ammo through is a good idea.
