Buy a gun that can shoot reloads.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I'm sure it does but the lone wolf is supposedly more accurate, likely stronger and opens up the option to use lead rounds. I make my own round ball, why not 10mm also?

Never tried lead rounds in any of them. But heck I have thought about casting some. I would shoot them from the factory barrel and if it wears out I would think you could send it in as they are guaranteed for life. I will look at the manual again to see if if says no lead rounds.

Glock barrels don't like cast lead bullets. Even Glock themselves say do not shoot lead bullets.

That I never looked into. I just started thinking about casting some now that I am getting into reloading and I have a bit of lead scrap. Thanks.

Before you read this please not I am NOT a Glock fan. I had a very bad experience with Glock so take my comments with a grain of salt. I will try to be as unbias as I can but sometimes my emotions get in the way. Glock, as a company, treated me very poorly.

You can buy an aftermarket barrel that will fit a Glock and accept lead bullets. They will make the Glock work just fine with cast lead bullets. However, it has been my experience that most people who reload do it to save on ammo costs. These after market barrels are very good and will make your Glock shoot lead bullets as well as any XD shoots them. The thing with that is you have a Glock you added a $100 to $200 barrel to just to make it shoot as well as a factory XD but you have spent the same money you would spend for a Sig.

Yeah shooting lead in a factory barrel will make your glock kaboom. DON'T DO IT

Sorry you had a bad experience with Glock. I never have yet. The Glock factory here in Ga treated me great when I dropped in. They did a free upgrade on my CC G27 and I am taking my G22 in for the free upgrades as well. I have never shot lead rounds from either just thought about it. I have no accuracy problems from my guns at all. If I have to buy a barrel to shoot lead then I won't.
