    Does anyone know if you can shoot the rainer plated bullets in glocks? I have a G-20 that I am starting to reload for and wondered if these copper plated rounds could be use in glocks and if they would hold up to the velocity of the 10mm? Thanks

    I've used Rainiers in my G-20 for the last few years without any problems.I think you just have to be careful not too load them too hot some have said the jackets will come apart at high velocities,I personally did not have this happen to me.

    I have used Rainier 180Gr. RNFP and FP with complete success. I use AA-7 @ 11 gr. with a COL of 1.250, and a crimp of .421. This is an Accurate published recipe for 1175FPS. My buddy, a 1911 guy, didn't like plastic guns or small calibers until he tried my G-20. Have fun.
