    Buy an aftermarket barrel with conventional rifling and a fully supported chamber. (I don't have a Glock, so I don't know of any brands to look for, but I know they exist)

    In my G22

    with hardcast lead bullets I got severe leading after 50 rds. Some Kbs have happened because of the increased pressure from thick leading.

    OTOH, there are a number of THR members who use lead routinely in Glocks. They say you must use a good hard bullet, and not drive it too fast, and it works fine.

    I watched a guy kaboom a 34 in an IDPA match shooting lead reloads. And then he said it was his second experience. No thanks. Aftermarket barrel if you insist.

    Glock says not good.. Lots of folks do anyway.. Why take the unnecessary risk? Makes life interesting... Me, I don't need the drama..

    I agree with all 3 posters above me, get an aftermarket barrel for lead reloads.
