Something with a flash suppressed powder is probably best for low light shooting. Blinding yourself with each shot you take when you're half-awake at 3 AM is probably not going to help you win a gunfight.

If it's practice ammo, try to get as close as possible to your carry ammo in terms of ballistics.

Think low to moderate velocity. You don't need anything that makes a compact weapon more difficult to control than it already is.

I've shot lots of different ammo through Glocks, and plenty of other pistols, and I'm still waiting on that magic bullet that the ammo companies keep saying they've come up with.

1) GLOCK themselves said NOT to use lead bullets.

Quote:
Can I use lead bullets?
No, we recommend the use of jacketed ammunition only.

2) A Lone Wolf barrel replacement is recommended instead.

3) How many times have you heard "well I can shoot XXXX many rounds out of my GLOCK without cleaning"? NOT a good idea to use lead with that mindset.

4) Is it really worth risking your gun, your hands, or possibly your life? Because if the gun does blow up, you'll end up holding this.

Glocks come with an owner's manual. Read it. No lead ammo. This is for a reason. Copper jacketed only.

While a aftermarket barrel is one possible solution, and I own 7 of them, at least, that I can remember off the too of my head, one needs to be careful about allowing ones self down the Glock modification highway.

Glocks work pretty well just as they are, and changing this, or that, is a slippery slope that can easily lead to Glock Leg, or worse.

The money saved on lead over copper jacketed or all copper is trivial compared to an educational moment at the end of a bang.

I own additional barrels to obtain more caliber choices. All my barrels are Glock, with two KKM and one Lone Wolf I have never used. LW is in my SHTF stuff in case I have a gun with no usable ammo.

I don't throw lead down the barrels of anything I shoot, just too dirty to clean back up. All my lead ammo (lots of it) is in my SHTF piles.

No no no no no.
Do people do it? Yes
Should an FFL that intends to keep their business suggest it? No
Don't be an idiot. Liability insurance is expensive enough without suggesting people set themselves up with a trigger actuated hand grenade.
You do not shoot cast lead in a glock factory barrel. Period.

You should do a lot of research on this matter and make up your own mind. I carry only ammo that has a proven street record and is used by LE. Speer Gold Dots, Remington Golden Saber, Federal HST, Winchester Ranger, Corbon , is all used and proven ammo. If your going to go to the trouble of carrying a gun use the best ammo you can find and don't just buy it because the box is pretty. There is a lot of good video of ammo testing on YouTube.

For the street: Speer Gold Dot 124gr +p BJHP. Bonded is important in case you have to fire through auto body steel or glass.

At home: Hornady Critical Defense. Low flash powder to help shooting at night and the round doesn't penetrate barriers as much as the Gold Dots.

I only carry bonded JHPs outside of the house. In addition to firing into a vehicle, you might be forced to fire out of a vehicle.

My G21 blew up on the second mag of lead bullets. And that was during the Clinton AWB so less than 20 total rounds. YMMV

I feed my G19 115g Barnes solid copper rounds by Double Tap. Otherwise I reload 124 g Berrys plated.

I use federal HST for my pistols that can't use +p ammo. Hornady and Speer would work just as well.

Hmm lets see I rotate between.... Hornady Critical Def 115gr HP, Winchester PDX 124gr JHP, Federal Hydra Shock 147gr JHP, Winchester Nato 124gr FMJ, and now Winchester Silver Tip 115gr JHP. The Federal is my favorite
