Yes, The 68 H & G mould is a 200 grain semi wad cutter cast Lead. It feeds them okay but the problem is the extractor has failed to extract the fired case from the barrel chamber. This has happened with 230 round nose lead bullets and once fired Remington brass. I have micked the bullets and cases and they match Remington's 230 grain full metal jacket factory ammo which functions just fine in the gun! Any Ideas. The extractor is the problem and I hate to send it back to the factory again. Thanks
I think if it were mine I would source a replacement extractor for it ,had a similar problem in a G 22,replaced the extractor, spring and bearing and that was the end of it's failure to extract problems.

You can run cast lead in Glock OEM barrels, but you have to pay attention to cleaning. Usually every 100 rounds with a brass brush. If you only run lead, you are better off to get a SS barrel, which can be easily cleaned with the old Bullseye lead cocktail of 50/50 white vinegar and hydrogen peroxide. Dissolves the lead in a few minutes. But bullet shape, not material, is what can give chambering issues. I used to run Laser Cast 200 gr SWC's in my G21's and G30 years ago, and never had a feeding issue.

And the extractor is not chipped? Sounds like a new Glock OEM extractor or an aftermarket Apex is the fix.
