Just thought I would let you guys know. I ordered a box of Missouri Bullets IDP #5, a 180grn cast TCFP 40 bullet. I have shot one box of them so far, and they feed and function well. Just thought I would pass on this money saving knowledge! :D

btw- I generally like their .45 bullets as well. They run great in my XD

which of their bullets were you running and what hardness? My only problem with them so far is that they like to lead my chamber(not bbl chamber). I think its because its a very low power round intended for plinking and idpa.

the only problem ive had with missouri is thier lead is too soft to run through a standard glock barrel. past thtat, top notch product.

I though Glock barrels aren't to have any lead shot through it. Only the aftermarket barrels can you do that.

lead for a glock had to be HARD to work right. i run WW lead with 3%ish tin in it and get good results. you have to know EXACTLY what you are doing, but for me it works fine. im not dropping 125$+ on a barrel i dont need.

lbreeves- it was the standard 124 gr LRN. it was some fo the first cast bullets i bought. they work fine in my C9 and SIG P6, just not the glock.

not really. they bite just fine in the glock. they dont work well in others (my P6 in particular hates them) but they feed anf function. i kepp seperate kinds of ammo for both. for my other pistols is cut my mix back a littel with pure lead to soften them up. my glock is 90+% of my shooting so most of my ammo is for it.

im fairly new to reloading and so far havent had good experiances with lead i bought a box of missouri bullets 125 gr 9mm im loading them with X.X gr bullseye powder shooting them out of a hi point c9 at 25 yrds some hit ok alot of them are going through the target sideways and leading the barrel bad i was told mabye the diamiter was to small so i checked and there 356 in diamiter i have loaded 3 or 4 other brands of bullets and havent had this problem with others also im not crimping was told by an older reloader i know that he dont crimp his 9mm when he loads i did decide to order a 9mm crimp die to try it out i was wondering if this will help my problem

sounds like your lead is to soft for the velocity you are shooting at. Pm me your load data, and i will check it against some i have.
