Lead + Glock: truly a bad idea?

I found 150gr, yes 150gr 9mm luger bullets at the same price, per 1000 as my planned purchase of 124gr Fiocchis.

Great!! That would give me a Major, power factor in my competitions!!

But.... Yes, there is a but.
They are lead RN bullets. Probably commercial reloads.

The power factor aspect whets my appetite, the price is as good as any, but then I have all the warnings of lead in polygonally rifled barrels ringing in my ears.

On typical Level 1 and Level 2 courses (Comstock targets typically at 30-40ft, max), would my Glock's accuracy really suffer that much?

Should I just get FMJs, stick to the Minor power factor and leave it at that?
When the right to effective self-defence is denied, that right to self-defence which remains is essentially symbolic.
