I purchased my first glock, a G30 Gen4 .45 ACP and it fires factory ball ammo just fine. I tried H & G 68 200 grain semi wadcutters with www.231 power and it jammed on several. It failed to extract 4 fired cases from the barrel, some failures to feed.

I sent it back to Glock in Georgia and they changed the slide and sent it back. It now feeds good but it has failed to extract 5 fired cases in once fired brass in 25 rounds. I have cleaned it thoroughly and checked the extractor but everything seems good! The same reloads fire flawlessly in my Colt Gold Cup.

Has anyone else had this problem. I very disappointed in the pistol.

Thanks for your help

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

The Semi Wadcutters are 200 Grain and loaded with 5.7 Grains of Winchester 231 power and Winchester primers. The overall length is is 1.258.

I am surprised that the Glock is ammo sensitive. I hate to shoot factory ammo all the time in it. 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.
Thanks, I think you are correct about the extractor. I'm going to shoot some more and see what happens.

Thanks to all, I really appreciate your advice. If the weather ever warms up here in Southern Ohio, I'm going to shoot in some more and try to determine what is going on. I've shot about 150 rounds through it so far have experienced hiccups every time!!!!!! I thought that Glock was jam proof and I was not aware that they do not advocate using lead bullets or I would not have bought it. Maybe, I'll get it solved. Thanks very much!
