Lone Wolf barrels can be used with lead bullets.

Cast Bullets in a Glock: I have a after market barrel for my G20, I have successful and safely cast and shot bullets from my G23.4 as a 40 and with OEM 357 SIG, Hard bullets being near groove diameter. Using softer bullets will leave lead in the barrel and bullets keyholing. I am getting ready to cast and load some Lyman truncated cone 175 grain bullet. Bullets are water quenched. My aftermarket barrel is a Lone Wolf that works well. For the G23.4 it's the stock and OEM barrel. Also, remember Glock does not recommend cast bullets.

It's entirely possible to load accurate, safe, high performance cast loads in a Glock factory barrel. One needs to know how to cast bullets for the factory barrel. See above post for instructions. I forgot to share about lead bullets in my G21.3.Works very well.

How about hard cast bullets? I read where hard cast are different than regular cast and are safe to use in Glocks. Of course you must clean the barrel regularly. I've loaded 180gr hard cast in my G20 and haven't noticed any leading. Haven't shot it a lot, but still nothing to see.

The ratio of Lead, tin and antimony vary. Linotype metal is often added as a hardner.Hard cast has been abused to the point of being near meaning less. My bullets are water quenched. There are no problems with leading generally. I do suspect that much of this leading in Glock's may have to do with gas cutting. Water quenching will give you a very hard bullet. I have seen this attributed to arsenic in the alloy. Be careful with water around molten lead. Sure, keep an eye open for leading in your G20.
