    Reloading for my g19

    I recently picked up a gen4 g19. I'm a first time Glock owner, so forgive me when I ask this......

    I've heard from a few sources that's you shouldn't shoot reloads through Glocks. Can someone explain who recommends this and why?

    I ask this as an avid reloader that really doesn't wanna buy factory loads.....

    It is only lead bullets that can cause problems. Jacketed bullets should be fine...barring an overcharge. The polygonal rifling in the stock barrels apparently are subject to more leading than conventionally rifled ones. If the glock barrels are not cleaned properly it can cause a potentially dangerous rise in pressure than can cause a Kaboom.

    There are lots of threads on this all over the internet if you care to google it somemore. Here's a link to a glock faq that explains it better than I can. Also be aware that use of reloads can void the glock warranty.

    The Glock manual does say that the use of reloads will void the warranty, specifically: "The use of reloaded ammunition will void the Glock warranty, due to the unpredictability of the standards (SAMI/NATO) adhered to, since reloads of poor quality ammunition may not meet (SAMI/NATO) specifications, may exceed limits, and therefore may be unsafe." I think that's a CYA thing on Glock's part. I have several Glocks that have had thousands of reloads through them with no issues.

    Thanks for that link...prettymuch explains it all....I have experienced the "leading" in my 1911, which is why I no longer load any cast lead rounds. All jacketed from here on out.

    Thanks again!
    S.T.D.

    I shoot lead out of a LWD barrel. I also quench my castings in ice water straight out of the mold. This makes them much harder, and I don't have any issues with leading. Loading at the lower end of the powder charge scale helps minimize the potienal for leading.
    Don't retreat! Reload!!!

    Also when shooting Russian ammo and such, keep in mind that if the damage to your firearm is a result of an ammunition malfunction, the firearm manufacturer will probably tell you that you'll have to collect your from the ammunition manufacturer. Obviously getting a Russian ammunition manufacturer to pay up would probably prove difficult at best, I've seen one case firsthand of it.
