    Steel case ammo?


    I'm hearing two different things about shooting steel case ammo in my Glock 30 S.F. I haven't shot any steel case ammo yet, but before I do, please let me know if there is any problem(s) I should be aware of.
    My friend bought be .45 auto 230 GR. Copper FMJ Steel Case Non-Corrosive Boxer Primed ammo by Wolf. Should I just trade em for something else or...?

    Please give me some feed back

    Steel case is harder on the gun than the softer brass cases, but Glocks can handle the abuse. I personally wouldn't feed it a lifelong diet of steel cases, but if its all you got or can get, shoot it.
    Don't retreat! Reload!!!

    I don't buy very much factory ammo with the exception of my carry ammo. I carry Speer Gold Dot .45acp 230 gr. 10mm Underwood 200gr.

    It'll be fine... Currently is more shoot what you can find! Steel cases won't hurt your Glock, well unless you shoot $10,000 worth... Maybe even not then... At worst, after 5,000 rounds, change your extractor.

    I am with TW on not much factory ammo, I have shot some steel not much. Some of my guns have never seen factory ammo. Once panic settles , reloading is a good investment, I started last April and now loading .223 , .45 , 10 mm and 9 mm. I find myself shooting so I can reload

    Great! I'm very new to the Firearm world! All advice is very much appreciated. I'm already feeling the heavy effects of what buying ammo does to my wallet. I'd like to get a machine to make my own ammo. This will hopefully be soon

    You can pull up many threads on reloading , it is even harder to find a machine than a gun right now!
