Noting bad about the glock it is just an unsupported chamber thus causing problems with brass failure on reloads. That is why they tell you not to use reloads in glock barrels.
The 7mm rem mag is harder on brass than 9mm. The 7mm rm is going to have case head separation problems. It is a high pressure round and will have a much shorter life than pistol brass. The brass of the 7mm rm might need to be trimmed every other or every 3 reloading. My 45acp haven't changed since the day I got them.
The biggest problem in reloading rifle brass is the work hardening of the case neck. That is easily taken care of by annealing your brass every other reloading cycle.
Well that's why I bought a kkm precision match grade barrel. It will literally shoot anything
