    Anyone load Polymer coated bullets

    I know it is not recomended to use lead bullets in a glock or simular barrel, but has anyone used these polymer coated bullets, or are they still a no/no in a hexagonal barrel

    What is the Polymer Bullet?

    This bullet is the combination of premium casting and space age chemical coating. With over 12 chemical ingredients including Teflon, Molybdenum Disulfide, combined with an advanced Homopolymer. This unique combination has produced an encapsulated coating that offers significant advantages over current lead and jacketed bullets.

    Our bullets are 22 BHN Premium Lead Alloy with a Polymer Coating that works like a chemical jacket
    Major reduction in smoke and leading over standard lead bullets.
    Increased Velocities; 60 to 80 fps. over jacketed bullets
    Reduction in recoil and recovery time.
    Extended life of gun, barrel, and brass.
    Lower cost, not only in bullets but allows you to use less powder as well.
    Out performs jacketed bullets on steel targets by maintaining longer contact time with target.
    Achieves a higher level of accuracy than standard jacketed bullets.
    We use only quality foundry alloy for our bullets and have a standard weight deviation of less than 1 grain with a BHN of 22.
    The bullets also have the lube grove like a lead bullet, would then still need lube also?

    for the factory glock barrel i would treat these bullets as the same a lead bullets. it just a chemical coating on a lead bullet, not a copper jacket over the lead.

    Their FAQ page says that they don't need any lube. I've been thinking of trying these myself. If you try them, let us know what you think. I have no idea on the hexagonal barrel thing though.

    Heres a link to the FAQ page:

    I've used moly coated handcast
    bullets from Bear creek with fine
    results.I'use them in 38spl,357mag
    44spl and 45colt.My 357mag loads
    are on the warm side for cast bullets but i've seen no signs of
    leading at all.If i was to try them in a Glock i would have the barrel
    very very clean before using them.I would also check the barrel
    for any residue every so often just
    to be on the safe side.

    I have not tried the polymer coated bullets in a Glock but their website says they will not hurt the barrel.

    I do shoot them in both .38Spl and 45 ACP SWC's that I shoot in IDPA. The main reason I went to them was to cut down on the smoke from the bullet lubricant. It does cut way back on the smoke and they are accurate and dependable.

    I read the part about it being okay in the glocks, do you notice much if any leading in the guns you do use them in?

    I am using Precision Bullets 230 grain round nose in my Ruger P345 with excellent results. They are shooting about four inches higher than my Gold Dot reloads using same components. Just have to remember to bell the case a little more than with jacketed bullets.

    I have experienced no leading at the velocities that I have been loading too. I usually fire at least 200 rounds at a range session and there will be a little black residue in the bore but a few brushes with some bore cleaner and a brush and it is clean again.

    I have been considering a Glock 30 and I will probably try some of my loads in it if I do get one.

    i would not use them in a glock i have used them in other Guns and thats not a true example as the polygonal rifling of the glock barrel is tighter than standard land and groove rifling
