9mill hardcast or coated bullets

Anyone shoot hard cast for handguns, recently found some coated bullets, that have less problems with leading. Shoot plated out of glock, and have stayed away from lead bullets due to leading, these coated bullets apparently fix that. Anyone use these such as the blue bullets?

I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.

Glock barrels are really not supposed to be fed cast, period.

I wouldn't put any sort of cast down my G23 barrel. Aftermarket barrels exist (drop in fit) for Glocks for this purpose.

I have a aftermarket barrel for my 19, but for a few bucks more seems like the coated bullets are worth it.

I won't run anything less than plated bullets into a stock Glock barrel.

I've thought about getting cast for my '23, but I will get an aftermarket barrel before doing that.

yea agree, not worth the risk. I run plated even at min-moderate loads to be safe. KKM makes a good barrel for the price btw. may pick up the coated and see how they shoot, start with a light load and check for any residue in the barrel.

I shoot only coated bullets in every gun I own, rifles and shotguns and have done so for the last 25 years since the moly/danzac stuff started !

I coat my own...moly or danzac....bought a couple of kits a longtime ago and still using it to this day...they use small bb's in an old tumbler, slick and quick...the way you can use everyone's bullets and coat your own.. I also use the blue coated xc Barnes bullets..best move I ever made !

I cast my own bullets and started powder coating them a little over a year ago (both rifle and pistol). I will never go back to traditional lubed bullets again. No leading, easy barrel cleaning and I've been able to push them a little faster. I even shoot them through my 30 caliber suppressor. I would never do this with traditional lube. I've shot thousands of lead bullets, both home cast and commercial, through my three glocks (USPSA competitions and practice) with zero issues. Most factory cast bullets are really hard. I would not shoot soft swaged cast bullets in a glock factory barrel

What kits do you recommend to coat bullets? and can you coat bullets that are already lubed? What factory lead bullets do you prefer??
