Yeah, I have a Glock 19. And I've heard all the rumors about lead bullets. I've found most people's views on this fall into three categories:
- Do NOT use lead bullets in your Glock. You WILL blow it up because of excessive pressures caused by barrel leading.
- You can use lead bullets, but clean it out every couple hundred rounds. Just be careful.
- Don't worry about it. Those blowing up stories are few and far between and are probably flukes.
I tend to lean on the second option with normal, plain, hard-cast bullets.
However, few people talk about soft cast bullets...with GAS CHECKS. Could it be possible that the addition of gas checks will reduce/virtually eliminate dangerous leading within the context of a Glock?
And don't anybody tell me to just get a Lone Wolf barrel or something like that.
