Anyone know if Rainier bullets are ok in Glocks or must one use jacketed bullets when reloading for them
Thanks Rock

When loaded to modest velocity the Rainier delivers excellent accuracy from Glocks (in 9x19, 40S&W, and 45ACP).

I loaded Berry's plated 124gr bullets with 4 grains of titegroup, about 1,000 fps out of a G-26 and No Fouling. The plated bullets work great in my factory barrel.

Yup, have run ca. 2K thru a G34 in IDPA, etc. Good accuracy and no problems. Bore stays very clean along with using Titegroup.

I have shot lots of Rainier 115 and 124 gr PRN in my Glock 19 with the only problem being it keeps asking for more. Also have had very good luck with the Rainier 124 gr PFP in .357 Sig practice ammo. Currently use West Coast 124 gr. PRN in 9mm. They seem a little more consistant than the Rainiers.
Take Care

I've been using Berry's 124rg flat points for both 9mm and 357 sig. 13.2gr of AA9 for 357 sig and 6gr of Power Pistol for 9mm. I've seen no signs of excessive fouling with either load out of my Glocks.

The Rainier have worked fine for me in 9mm, 10mm, and 45 ACP. Accurate and cheap. Just don't try to load them past 1600 fps!
