It has always been a practice of mine to never use reloads of any kind, there have been many cases inwhich a failure to operate has been because of the use of Reloads , the splitting of the cartidge is due to the over loading of the power, this can also cause the gun to blow up in your face. factory loaded rounds are your safe'es loads to use of any caliber.
Thanks again for the response all, i do reload and use the latest Data and Have not had any Kabooms, I always stay well below the Max load, and have had some good results with the rounds that i shoot , after reloading about 500 rds and shooting those rounds i read an article about Kabooms in the Glocks only. I have always knew that i was going to reload and had a very good habit of saving my case's. Finally got the reloading stuff and have been at it full tilt. I will reload only twice and get new brass .
I cannot afford precious metals like gold and silver but i can afford lead and i may be carrying a few troy ounces of it. Lead it is the only metal that increases value when you give it away.
I have been reloading for over 40 years. Have had a few problems with semi auto rifles (brass not sized correctly) very few problems with handguns. I don't use cast bullets in my Glocks, lead buildup at chamber mouth. Never any problems if brass is sized correctly and jacketed or plated bullets are used. I don't use range pickup brass. I reload for and shoot 9mm, 40S&W and .45ACP in my Glocks. I have been reloading for the Glocks for about 15 years. Don't know how many thousands of rounds of reloads I've run through the Glocks. I've worn out several recoil springs in my 19's & 23's. I have several of each. If you stick to loads in the manuals you shouldn't have any problems. I also use only "factory" ammo in my carry guns.
I would echo some of the above opinions. Know what you are reloading. That means reload your own brass. Inspect everything before you reload it. Look over your brass, primers, powder, bullets, etc. Throw away anything that is not 100% right. If you want to shoot lead bullets, buy a aftermarket, button rifled barrel, such as a KKM or a broach cut Lone Wolf.
Load reasonable rounds using information from reliable sources (read that "established manuals). Don't be in a hurry to load those +P rounds. You may find that shooting less powerful loads is more to your liking!
Lastly, know that ammo from any source can go KABOOM! The only round that I have ever experienced exploding personally was a factory round. Wear protective clothing at the range: eye protection, a hat and a heavy long sleeve shirt or canvas coat is a good idea along with appropriate hearing protection.
