    Rainier Ballistics Bullets


    I'm wanting to find out if anyone has loaded and used any of the Rainier Ballistics Bullets for use in their Glock. I load a lot of different rounds for my .40's and after a while just "plinking" can get a bit costly. I know I can change barrels and shoot lead but I prefer Glock barrels. Looking in the latest Midway flyer that came in the mail today I see where I can buy 1000 rounds of 165 Gr. Plated Flat Nose for $101.99.

    I use them and have had no problems.

    A few of the re-loaders at my range poo poo the swagging method but I am okay with it because of the price.

    I would even consider carrying it for SD if I had to !

    I just go through so much ammo even reloading it would help to use a cheaper projectile. I can't get anywhere near the price for 1000 FMJ bullets but being a "purest" and shooting only Glock barrels I don't want to cause a malfunction. Thanks for the input Otintx and Tactworld45, I see a shippment coming my way in the near future.

    I shoot these in glocks 9mm and .40cal and several other weapons and calibers, with excellent result.
    For practice bullets I recomend these or Hornady HAP.

    Since I first posted this wondering if they would work well for me I had no idea that I would now be on my 4th batch of 1000. I have been shooting the 165 grain flat point exclusively in .40 S&W. They have worked beautifully and I would highly recommend them to anyone. I have experienced zero problems with the polygonal barrels and since using FrogLube I have had NO problems with deposits in the barrels either.

    Be SAFE.....Shoot WELL
