To be fair though, every manufacturer warns against using reloads. Also, many people shoot reloads in Glock 40s without problems. I've shot 10k reloads out of a G24 without problems. You just have to be more diligent about inspecting brass, etc due to the lack of support in the factory barrel. I've also read that certain combinations of powder and heavy bullets are a BAD thing.Originally posted by dsk:
More than once I've been advised by folks whose opinions I trust to avoid the .40 caliber Glocks. They seem to be just fine when shooting factory ammo, but the minute you put in a reloaded round with thin case walls you are at severe risk for a blowup. Not that this is any secret- Glock warns heavily against using reloads in their guns, and not just out of the usual product liability.
