    I load the 200 grain SWC in both lead and plated bullets.

    I load with 4.5 grains of Titegroup and haven't had any problems.

    To be honest I've never measured OAL till you asked me.

    My first father in law taught me to reload about thirty five years ago and he shared some tips and time savers with me. He took some rounds that he had been successful with and kept a few back to use as reference.

    If I have to change the settings on my dies for any reason, I use my reference bullets to set my dies.

    To do this, I put a reference round in the shell holder of the press and drop the handle. I then adjust the die to loosely fit the bullet and then fine tune from there. I load with a Dillon 650 so each caliber is on a tool head and it's easy to maintain the settings. If I have to change dies or settings for any reason, it's easy to do.

    I only load a few different caliber and bullet types and keep one or two factory loaded rounds of each for reference.

    The 200 grain SWC I mentioned earlier is a bullet I've shot in matches for years and have no problems with. Not very scientific, but it's always worked for me and I haven't blown anything up yet.

    I'll add the customary legal liability disclaimer to use any and all load data and measurements at your own risk and reference published manufacturers information for accuracy. If you don't feel comfortable with any information provided, don't use it.

    And Glock does not recommend using lead bullets in their pistols.

    Bullet type affects OAL dimensions, I sometimes load a few and put them in the magazine and cycle them through the weapon,if they feed and eject ok then load away.

    Now that I recall, Glock does not recommend using reloads in their pistols.

    Yup, and car makers recommend only using their name brand oil and filters, and grocery stores recommend only buying their store name brands ...


    Nothing new there.

    Yeah, I think I read something about that back in 1988 when I bought my first Gen-1.
