    Does the current crop of G20 barrels still limit the brass life to just a few reloads, like the early G20s did? Is it a given that you must get an after-market barrel for better brass life? Thanks.

    If you're going for max, all-out loads, generally, yes. Glock will not likely be changing this anytime soon, as they see their pistols first, foremost, and always as military-police-defensive pistols which must always work, every time, very reliably. The sloppy chamber helps with feeding, so it is here to stay.

    If you limit your hot-hot loads to brand new brass, and only reload it to those levels two or three times, you can then relegate it to the light-reload practice-ammo pile of brass, and continue to reload it multiple times, but with much milder loads

    One of my G20's is less than 6 months old and it has the worst chamber support of my 10mm collection, if that tells you anything.

    Thanks for the information. I will probably look around for nice S&W 1000 series.
