I'm guessing this would explain what is known as the "glock bulge".

Btw here is a comparison of the riffling. The first is my G23 the second is my XD45.
Umm...is that a live round chambered in your XD?

Hmm...I thought "Glock Bulge" was from gangbangers carrying them "convict style"?

I'm a newb so please forgive me but...... Polygonal rifling sucks in a Glock but is the bees knees in your stainless barreled AR?

it only sucks if you want to use non jacketed bullets. it greatly limits your options in a ohsht type situation. glocks and polygon rifled guns are pretty much a no go for that sort of thing. if your planning on using a glock for ohsht end of the world get a different gun or replace the barrel.

Nope. That's a penny. The bore on a .45 is just so big it can fit a penny. Lol

Yea it's a live round. Don't worry tho I used a tripod for the camera and leaned to the side. And did not have my booger hooker on the bang switch. Also did not have the grip safety engaged. Plus it was a decapped casing with no charge. Trust me I'm not blowing my face off for a pic.

I always called it "Mexican carry". But I like "convict style" better.

Well I guess that would not be a live round. But it is a real bullet.
