    I have not seen lead factory ammo in .45 ACP either. Perhaps it is time you started reloading?

    Has Magtech lead semi-wadcutters and UltraMax lead round nose.

    Has Master Cartridge lead round nose.

    I have bought from both and have had excellent service from each. Have not used any of the rounds mentioned.

    Put 150 rounds of Federal FMJs through my G30 no stoppages today, worked great. The guy at the gun store gave me a hard time returning the the left over reloads saying that they were fine and it must be me. Looks like maybe he was wrong. Either way, everything is back to normal with my glock.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Sounds like you did right. Ammo was probably out of spec, (cases not resized) and/or missed a powder charge. Very bad stuff. Glad you caught the stuck round before you lost your new barrel and a hand.

    You are not supposed to shoot lead bullets through the Glock's polygonal rifled barrel. Check your owner's manual. It can cause all kinds of nasty things to happen.

    Did you read ALL of the post?

    He said he installed a EFK Firedragon barrel into it which is a conventional rifled barrel perfectly safe for lead
