    Anybody reload for their Glock 9mm

    I currently reload for rifles and wheelguns, but have never done so for a bottomfeeder. Is there anything I need to know other than proper length dimensions for feeding? Any suggestions on dies? Thanks For Your Help!!

    DO NOT use reloads in your Glock!

    I used reloads one time in my Glock 27, Kaboom! The gun held up well, the slide cover plate hit me in the cheek right below my glasses. Glock wanted the weapon back and gave me a brand new one as long as they got the weapon back. I think it says not to use reloads in the owners manual. Love how it held up, the guy next to me said it sounded like a double charge of powder.

    If you "roll your own" and are careful about what you do, why would it hurt to shoot reloads in a Glock??? I've shot my reloads through everything else I own with no problems. I don't shoot anyone elses reloads though.

    It does state in the manual to not use reloads. I myself used to shot reloads through my first Glock 17 but after having a serious jam with a live round I've never fired a reload again.

    I have a g19 and reload all my practice ammo.I reload to match my carry ammo.I don't use lead bullets when I reload.I use either FMJ or rainier plated at less than max charges.I have been doing this for a long time now,without any problems.I pay close attention to my charges and OAL.I always check my barrel for leading when I get home.So far I've seen no signs of leading or any damage to the lands or grooves.sj

    Every owners manual in modern times says to use factory ammo only. For liability reasons.

    I have got close to 20,000 reloads through my G19. Why no reloads?

    I understand Glock does not recommend it ( rifling type the issue?)
    I also just read about the KAboom in the .40...

    I am very careful when I load, and weigh each charge to the tenth of a grain. I believe that my specs are more controlled than the factorys, and a couple of you gents have been doing it for some time now..

    Bear with me while I attempt to talk myself into this situation...

    I reload for my G30 and shoot 230 grn LRNs. I do use a Storm Lake barrel, but in all honesty, other than the chamber is slightly tighter in the SL, I can't see any differences. The factory barrel has the same support or maybe a tad better.
    I also never load hot charges. Never had any that worked out like I wanted accuracy wise.

    I've been reloading since 1978 and have never had a problem. As long as you exercise caution, reloads are as good as factory. The only problem I've ever had was when my Kimber Pro Carry HD-II in .38 Super wouldn't cycle and was FTE. That was with PMC "FACTORY" ammo. My reloads worked fine.
