    Congrats on the G22. With the stock factory barrel, it is not recommended to shoot lead projectiles out of it.

    Welcome! Shoot as many different brands of ammo you can to determine reliability of each type. So far I haven't had any issues with any of the .40 I've used. The only thing to stay away from is the unjacketed lead. Almost everything you buy that's factory loaded is jacketed lead (FMJ or JHP). Most unjacketed is in the form of re-loads. If you plan to use this gun for personal protection, make sure you test the rounds you plan to keep in the gun. For practice you can shoot the cheap FMJ.
