I don't have a stainless barreled ar . The polygonal barrel doesn't necessarily suck, I don't believe I said that, however that is pretty close to my opinion of Glocks, not totally due to the barrel though. As far as polygonal rifling in an AR, that wouldn't bother me as much as in a pistol because I would be FAR less likely to shoot lead cast bullets from an AR, for me lead bullets is a pistol thing and if things get tight and copper jacket bullets are hard to come by, well the glock won't do you much good as it is too light to effectively wield as a bludgeoning device, maybe one could learn to throw it more like a boomerang?

Simple answer. If you wish to shoot lead, get an aftermarket barrel that is cut rifled. I use BarSto and Jarvis in mt Glocks

Jacketed bullet reloads work fine in 9MM and .357 SIG versions of the Glock. Tapered and bottleneck rounds in Glocks have good chamber support.

10MM, .40 and .45 Glocks do not have this support. Get a Jarvis or BarSto barrel for them.

Polygonal barrels were used on the Big Bore African Dbl. rifles during the 19th century.

I have a Lee Bulge Buster kit to process my handgun brass- it removes the bulge and resizes the brass. http://leeprecision.com/case-conditioning-tools/lee-bulge-buster-kit/

It removes the Glock bulge. Still need to use an after-market fully supported barrel though.

Thank you for all the info. Based off of what I am reading don't shoot non plated/jacketed bullets in glocks because the barrel rifling promotes led build up. And the chamber doesn't support cartridges well.. For that reason there is a level of risk that cases will rupture near the base of the bullet. My lyman manual and my lee die sets only show the warning on .40 cal which leads me to believe that they are the most susceptible but it could happen in any caliber if the loads are to hot or brass is over worked.. So this is what I am going to do.. Reload a usual and shoot glocks in all the other calibers but watch for the glock bulge.. In my 40 I will shoot only light loads and use only once (maybe twice) fired rounds.. Sounds like the risk level would be acceptable if I follow this method

Again thank you all for your feedback as always your knowledge has been very helpful.. I didn't expect 3 pages of it lol, and the glock hatred was at a minimum and professionally presented lol
