jackets & lead Q's

    i'm new to the THR forums and new to the world of guns in general. i've read the lengthy discussion on shooting lead cast bullets through glocks (http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=172607) and that is what my concern is. i'm planning on casting my own .45 acp for a glock 30 which i will more than likely conceal and carry.

    first... i'm confused about what can/should be done with the lead bullet, post casting. do these bullets require a jacket? why/why not?

    second... as i've said, i plan on using my lead cast bullets for defensive purposes and i was wondering if 200 grain or 230 grain would be better shooting out of the shorter barrel. i was also wondering what bullet style might be ideal for defensive purposes; round nose, hollow point, flat nose etc.

    any ideas or suggestions are welcome... just note that i'm already set on shooting lead cast bullets through my glock :p
