Just a purchased a Glock 29 and looking to run Underwood Ammunition exclusively. I notice there are several different bullet grain options up for sale. I'm thinking 135 grain for self defense. Does it matter if I train with 165 grain or 180 grain at the range but use 135 grain for carry? Should I carry the same grain I use to train?

What are your thoughts on mixing grain for training and EDC? Also, what bullet grain would you recommend as "the sweet spot" or balance in application?

Replaced the 17lb guide rod spring with 21lb.

Welcome to the forum. Per the "interwebs" the 165 grain is a good balance for the Glock 29. It is said the 135 grain doesn't penetrate enough. The point of impact may differ between bullet weights.

Jason, thanks for the info. So, train with 165 FMJ and carry 165 JHP?

I have changed the RSA from 17 lb. to 21 lb. Any other upgrades recommended?

If you can find 165 FMJ and JHP. Problem could be the FMJ won't be loaded as hot as the JHP. If you load your own, you'll be fine. There are others more knowledgeable then may, they'll chime in soon.
