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.
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.
