I understand that there is a general consensus not to use lead bullets through stock Glock Barrels. What about coated.

I have started using Bayou bullets in my SVI, and like them, but am wondering about using them in a 40 minor load that I use in my Glock 35 for IDPA matches.

That is False.

I've shot tens of thousands of cast lead bullets out of Glocks.

But yes, you can shoot coated lead as well.

Mark - I just ordered some of them Gator snot bullets, to shoot in my SVI.

Do you have another Quinn mount to sell, I bought another open gun.

No offense intended Matt your mount is awesome. Just not many used ones on the market.

No offense to Matt, but he is wrong. There is a general concensus to not shoot lead out of Glock barrels.

So as not to just re-post, you can read this post for some info so you can make an informed choice. http://www.brianenos...?...t&p=1027687

As for coated, it appears that copper plated, polymer coated and moly coated, in general, avoid the issues of lead slugs through stock Glock barrels. As an aside, I have had a few shooters insist they get no leading in the Glock barrels and I have been able to remove a sizeable amount from their barrels.

Can't vouch for Bayou bullets but I use BBI's in my Glocks and they don't lead at all.

I've shot thousands of moly coated bullets through my glock oem barrel and mostly they are fine. I use Bear Creek so I cannot speak to any other moly bullets. There happens to be some rare problems that occur and I think I'm the only one to run into them. But that is for a different thread. I've shot lead cast bullets in my G17, G34, G35 without success. But I've only tried ONE brand and then went on to use moly instead. It is definitely less smokey then moly.

Is the general consensus that Bayou Bullets perform better in a stock OEM Glock barrel than Precision Bullets?

I shoot the Bayou Bullets out of both a glock barrel and a lone wolf and have had NO residue what so ever. Highly recommend Bayou Bullets.

Bob Vogel uses Precision Bullets. He only lists an aftermarket barrel for open class. I assume he is using the Glock barrel for production, limited and IDPA.
