    Okay, I just got a new glock 23 and I carry a glock 22 on duty, but kinda new to compact pistols with a 4 inch barrel I know 180 gr. are okay to shoot out of the 22 with no problems. I just bought some Remington Golden Sabre "bonded" 180 grain hollow points and was just wondering if a heavy bullet like this will do its job ballistically. I took the new gun to the range and it is a tack driver with moderate recoil, but accuracy is not helping me on the ballistics of the bullet. Any help from a ammunition expert would help. Thanks

    Give this a read. I don't know what to think myself on the barrel length issue. I use the same PD ammo in my G27 as I do in my G22. Then again...I aint no ammo expert.

    Thanks for the help, it sounds like the Golden Sabre 180 grain is good for the 4 inch barrel. It just seems like the 23 should be standard barrel size instead of the 22 with a 4.49 inch barrel. Appreciate the assistance.
