No lead though HK USP's as well, poly rifling.

I am not 100% on the facts of this. I have not looked into it myself. But I have heard you can shoot lead through a HK USP. They do something a little different than glock with there poly rifling.

Balderdash!

Kabooms are not limited to Glocks. There can be many, many reasons for any kaboom.

I shoot lots and lots of home cast lead bullets through my G-20 with no fear of kabooms. In fact the leading in my stock barrel is minimal.

Now who's loading a bored out 9mm (AKA 40 S&W) to the SAMI limits of the 9mm, and beyond? All I can say is good luck, and don't blame the manufacturer if something goes bad.

No this was not a double charge. This is a common condition resulting from firing lead bullets.

I blew up my G21 shooting lead through the factory barrel. It cracked the chamber and shredded the magazine.
It was not a double charge. About 100 lead rounds fired through without cleaning and bang!

Shooting lead in your Glock? Simple solution. Get a Wolf barrel with conventional rifling . Drops right in, no fitting required.

Please exercise caution when advocating something the manufacturer specifically warns you NOT to do. Unjacketed bullets in a Glock are a BAD idea. Will it blow your gun up? Maybe, maybe not. Just not worth the possibility when Glock specifically warns you to not do so.

HK does not warn against unjacketed lead in their polygonaly rifled pistols. The theory I have heard is the problem actually lies in the throat. The Glock throat builds lead.

So is it safe to use the Hornady HP or the FMJ in a factory glock.
