Since it seems so many people here either have or want a Glock 20, why is it that ammunition is so expensive? How many of you own a 20 or are considering it as your next purchase?
TNFrank Do you still have the 10mm dies? If so would be willing to sell them? The G20 is going to be my next gun purchase. I reload 9mm on a Dillon 550 for my 19, 26 and 17L.TNFrank said:When I had my Glock G20 and 29, (both at the same time, sweet combo) I loaded my own ammo for em'. Doesn't cost anymore to load then anything else, just need to get the brass on hand to load up. The 10mm Auto has kind of went the way of the 41Mag, great cartridge but it just never really caught on like it should have. There is kind of a "Cult" following(like the 41Mag) but I think more folks opt for the G21/30 for a Large Frame Glock then the G20/29 now days.
If you want one and feel you could use the power level then by all means get one, they'll hold up great to full power 10mm ammo but you can also get pretty close with full power 40S&W stuff too and have a slightly smaller size gun.
Nope, that was over 13 years ago. IIRC they were Lee Carbide dies that'd work for the 10mm Auto AND the 40S&W ctg. so if you have both you can load both with just one set of dies.TNFrank Do you still have the 10mm dies?
A 45 super will give the 10MM a good run for the money. Heads up, between the two, IMO. I've had 185XTP @ 1,350 in 45 Super with no sugns of pressure. I would like a spring heavier than 24# though.I reload the 10 mm to save money and always have it on hand , but most important, to get the most out of the round over the weak factory rounds. A good stiff loaded 10 with some Blue Dot and 200 grain pills! Gets the blood going, and in MHO, there's no other round like it.
I've always thought the Super would be a good way to get added performance out a 45acp gun if it'll hold up to it. Of course a Glock being a Glock, there should be no problems once you get the right recoil spring and brass to load up. Might even add the little rubber shock buffer to the gun in this case, not a fan for standard use but with the Super it couldn't hurt.A 45 super will give the 10MM a good run for the money.
Never had an issue with one and it's easy to remove if it ever causes a problem.I never used one but I have heard from many people not to use a shock-buff
