    Glock 19 ammo

    Getting things together so I can go to the range next week so a question or 3.
    Ammo, how picky can the 19 be about brands. Any brands to stay away from?
    Reloads, I know the owners manual says no but we all know reloading happens.
    I guess that is all for now.

    Not picky at all. I would suggest avoiding steel case and I always buy 124 GR bullets if possible because they are usually the same price as 115 GR bullets and I find them more reliable. Get some training and have some fun.

    About the only thing to avoid in reloading is cast bullets with a stock G**** barrel. The type of rifling they use is supposed to be a no-no.

    THIS to both.

    Mine seems to prefer 124s for accuracy.

    And you can buy button rifled aftermarket barrels if you want to reload lead. But you can still run plated or powder coated bullets fine in factory barrels.

    Well I've already have some reloaded with 125gr. TMJ and some factory 115gr TMJ, so I guess I'm good to go.

    Most Glock 9mm's shoot 124 grain bullets more accurately!

    My 19 has about 40,000 rounds thru it and it likes most all ammo including my reloads. I have also almost completely stopped with all 115gr as I have found accuracy and less snappy recoil with 124 or 147. 147 is actually my preferred round the last several years. I do not do any steel cased stuff. Check out sgammo.com, a great company to do business with.

    I will concur on the heavier 124 and 147 as my Glocka seem to be more accurate with them (Gen 4 19, 17 and gen 5 34). Ot but hat the 115's are ok but I can tell a difference plus with many matches the 124-147 do better on steel targets that have to be knocked over.

    The newer Glocks with “marksman” rifling can shoot cast.

    Older poly rifled barrels should avoid cast.


    Also, hard cast is ok in the older ones.
