Hello all,

I am considering buying some 147g. Missouri flat nose 9mm bullets. http://www.missouribullet.com/detail...ry=8&keywords= These will be launched out of a G17 with a KKM barrel. A couple questions.

1. What is your favorite 9mm lead bullet to shoot out of a Glock?
2. What type of bullet runs most reliabily out of your Glocks?
3. What is the most accurate bullet you have found.
4. What is your favorite recipie?

Thanks fellow reloaders!!! Sammy

(eidt - oops, I didn't see the KKM barrel in your post)

your link doesn't work

The babble on the internet is that lead is not good for stock polygonal barrels. If you use lead, check your barrel for lead build up every 50 round. The Glock 17 is picky with nose shape. Round flat nose bullets don't feed in mine.

I use these 2 Lee bullets. I water quench wheel weights. I get real hard bullets.

I have not found an accurate load/bullet yet. I am still testing.

CSA hardcasts out of an 8 cavity H&G mold. I really like them because, I scrounge free lead so, they cost me almost nothing to make.

Don't have a Glock (yet), but Ruger SR9's seem to love Lee's 358-105-SWC. While originally intended for .38 Special, when sized to .356", it works great in 9mm applications, too. No feeding problems that I've encountered.

BHN 15-16 alloy seems to work best for 9mm Para pressures.

My choice also. 125grn RN sized to .356 to be exact. Feeds all the time

Bear Creek makes a mighty good product for the money.

Just took some Bear Creek loads out yesterday. The 147gr FP works really well out of my wife's SIG 2022. Light load of Bullseye at 1.12" OAL.

We also get good results from the Bear Creek 125gr FP but I think the 147gr works a bit better. The 125gr is actually a Truncated Cone boolit and looks like it should feed in just about anything.

I just cast all mine. I do buy bullets sometimes, just like the idea of making my own.
