    I have been using MBC bullets for some time now in 9mm and 40. I recently picked up a Glock 21 and a LWD barrel so that I could shoot lead through this as well. I was wanting to know if there were any particular types of bullets I should stay away from or any suggestions that you might have. I was wanting to use the 230 grn RN, 200 grn RN, and 200 grn SWC.

    Anything with too long of a profile is iffy. I shot the 230 softball out of mine with fair success, but you have to seat them towards the deeper side. You may find that you need to send that barrell back to lonewolf, to get it worked a little before it will want to take many lead bullets well.

    Try some test/factory loads to see if they feed/chamber well in the Lone Wolf barrel - their newer barrels seem to have some of the work ljnowell talks about already done. If they feed/chamber well, then you are good to go. If not, call Lone Wolf (they come with life-time warranty).

    For me, I shoot all of my Lone Wolf barrels stock without any feed/chamber problems. I start with the OAL max for each caliber and decrease OAL only if I have any feeding/chambering issues.
