    I've read of Glock kabooms and IIRC it was mostly from 40 cal and 45 cal guns where the case is unsupported. This creates a bulge and a weak spot and w/reloads, danger. Hence the kaboom.

    I've also read that the 9mm Glocks don't suffer from that unsupported area and that cases can be used longer.

    My question is, for the Glock 9mm, and with moderate loads (I'm talking 124 grain fmj encapsulated bullets w/5.0 grains Unique), how many times can I reload the case?

    Until you lose it in the bushes, or the neck splits. I shoot a similar load. I have no clue how many times my cases have been fired.

    Thanx. That's sort of what I figured.

    atblis has it correct. I reload mine quite a few time (>10x) without any trouble. I shoot them out of a G17 or G19. My .45ACP gets loaded a lot a well and shot out of my G21.

    Same here, no issues.

    I am running G26, G19, G17, & G21 using all reloads.

    I reload the heck out of my 9mm cases. I have had a case blow out the side at the base in an arcus hipower. It blew the extractor out of it. Mark
