    I have been running the Missouri Bullet Company 200 grain OddBall through mine. Both coated and conventional. I have Lone Wolf rifled barrels in both my 37 and 38.
    I see no reason the Lee Bullet would not feed in a GAP.

    The Lee LSWC is all I use in my GAPs, works great, no problems.

    Mine are 1.079 OAL. I have found the key is no more than the thickness of a thumbnail of the driving band above the case mouth.

    Are you guys running the Lee lswc in raw lead or are you coating them? I have a buddy that molds his own for a variety of guns and have been considering making my own as well. He keeps telling me not to run raw lead in a Glock barrel. Obviously I’ve read tons of differing opinions on this subject. I don’t think I shoot enough for it to matter.

    Skippy,

    With the lead alloy I use, in my Glocks I have to water drop them in order for them not to lead badly in a magazine's worth. By that I mean that when I open the bullet mold I drop the bullet into water. That more than doubles it's hardness. It doesn't take much to start the lead build up sometimes. After that it doesn't matter how many rounds - zero leading.

    Usually all I have to do is size the bullet larger than normally called for but not with my Glocks.
