I've shot lead out of a G17 for a couple years before I sold it,never had an issue,I reload for most popular pistol calibers and have never had a kaboom
I recently got a KKM 9mm barrel for my G17 and not only do I get a little less leading, group sized cut in half. Reliability with all bullet shapes remained at 100%. KKM is more money but now it is the only one I would get for future Glocks.
I shot 200 Gr SWC's in my G-21 in the 1990's before aftermarket barrels became common, more than 25,000 rounds. Never had an issue and never had a leading issue. They ran at 180PF for IPSC. I reload FMJ for my 9MM Glocks and 40 Cal G-35. The G-35 has an aftermarket barrel in it, but never had an issue with the first 10,000 rounds in the factory barrel, but it was with FMJ 200 GR Round nose. Paying close attention and doing good Quality Control will let you reload for almost any gun out there. Some are just more picky than others.
I've reloaded for all of my glocks for I'll say the better part of 15yrs now and I've only had one SINGLE feed issue in my wife's G26 and this was just because
I missed a imperfection in the finished round when it came out of the press. We have both put thousands of reloads thru the glocks we take to the range without issues ( G17,20,26,27). I never used lead bullets though, I always loaded either FMJ or the cheaper " copper plated" bullets for no real reason then they just seem cleaner all around from the press to the range
Check out hickok45 on youtube. That guy shoots a LOT and he reloads for his glocks with factory barrels.

Hi I own a Glock 22 I have been saving up my brass from when I go shooting to reload Glock brass do I need some sort of trimming tool to deal with the billowing at the bottem end of the brass or would just having the Dillion reloading dies work?
I have a G-RX Sizing Die from Redding that does the full length case reforming after a 40S&W is shot out of a not fully supported barrel (read that as Glock and some others). This gets the case to original factory and SAMMI spec to reload. All my 40 cases go thru the die. You use it on a single stage press put it in the bottom and press it thru to the top and remove it, repeat for each case. The Dillon machine will not get rid of the bulge, I know because I have two of them.
