My G21 blew up in my hand after using lead reloads. Glocks were new at that time so the message of no lead was not as well spoken as it is now.
I have loaded 40, 45, 9, and 357 sig in my various Glocks with no problems for almost 10 years now. No issues with the brass or function after I ditched the lead.
I can't see why reloads are any more of an issue in a Glock over any other pistol even with the less supported chamber.

Just get a Lone Wolf or Storm Lake drop-in barrel and then you can shoot all the lead reloads you want.

A lot of mfgs say no reloads. It is a safety issue and legal disclaimer. If your gun blows up it is your fault.

Thank you all - I will consider myself "forewarned"...but I will continue to use MY reloads and accept all responsibility for any consequences....

On a side note (and I'm NOT calling anyone out on here) - I find it rather odd that a lot of folks keep spouting off the "don't use reloads" and they will absolutely trust a high dollar set of machines that pump out thousands of factory rounds hourly/daily and with minimal human input/observation...and yet, they cannot put any trust in someone who sits at a MUCH LESS expensive machine that does the same processes ONE ROUND at a time BUT has a human intently involved/focused in EVERY step - the ONLY difference between the two processes is that the case used in mass production is new - reloads typically are not...I'd trust MY reloads over any factory round simply because I have checked everything in every step before that round gets put into any of my guns...my point? I think its simply a disclaimer by the companies to keep them from having to repair a gun that has had a bad reload damage it. it is possible to get a bad factory round - its probably more likely to get one from a reload but i'd wager that most reloads that 'blow up' a weapon were due to the reloader attempting to get MAX performance from that round and pushed (or exceeded) the limits...something I have NEVER done. Safety first for me cuz its my body parts that are holding this potential "mini-bomb" ...lol...lastly, everyone have a SAFE and Wonderful Holiday today!!

Yeah. Another member has already made that statement. Just look a couple comments above.

I've been reading Glock related discussions on a wide variety of gun forums and, FWIW, the vast majority of the cases of some sort of catastrophic failure or significant malfunction is a result of using reloads. Perhaps everyone reporting problem is just an idiot who does not do a good job of reloading, or ... perhaps it is not a good to use reloads in Glocks.

YMMV.

perhaps idiots shouldn't reload then....and by the same token, they shouldn't use Glocks (or any other weapon) either
