Robocop10, 4x will get me alot further then 2x's as I originally planned.. Do I have to get the bulge out each time? I would think working the case over and over would cause the case to brittle faster theoretically but I prefer your real world experience over my theory :-)

One thing not mentioned about this cheap rifling is how much more accuracy can be had with a pistol barrel,, and as was mentioned greatly reduces wear. My Hk USP has poly rifling and is a tack driver. just wanted to mention accuracy,, as for me I don't reload, yet, and I always shoot copper jacketed.

When comparing my g23 to my XD45 on paper. The only way I can tell what gun shot what group is from the size of the holes.

well then again I was talking about a USP with polygonal, maybe poly rifling techniques differ for manufacturers. I assumed they'd be pretty similar. Maybe your just a crack shot with the xd. Which have you put more rounds through?

I process every striker fired case every time. The bulge must be removed to insure reliable feeding/chambering in a non-Glock barrel. The other part of the issue is the sloppy tolerance of the Glock chamber. They have generous dimensions to allow for reliable feeding in field conditions. This allows the brass to swell more than other (tighter chambered) guns. Since I want my ammo to function in any gun, I make sure the ammo is near perfect. If you are running them back through the same gun, it will not be as much of an issue. Think neck sizing in a rifle

Ok that makes perfect since.. I will be running these loads through multiple guns so the bulge needs to go.. Thank you

I'm just saying I do not notice a difference between the two types of riffling as far as accuracy. I'm definitely not a crack shot at all. I'm just the kind of person who can shoot good with just about anything. Jack of all trades master of none. And I have more rounds through my XD.

Ok this has got me thinking. I have a G22 gen 3 and a G21 for use with IDPA. I was actually in this section to learn what I need to reload (just bought a hornady lock and load progressive).

What do I need to do to my g21 and g22 so I shoot FMJ reloads?

FMJ's should run fine, no leading problem there. You should probably get an aftermarket barrel that had better support to minimize the bulge, and then get a bulge buster for processing your ammo. Lone Wolf has barrels for around $100.
