    Nowadays I use the Lee 356-120-TC sized to .357 with Randy Rat's Tac-X. They weigh around 122 grains cast from range scrap. I shot up all the .356 slugs as I now size to .357 for all my 9mm and .380 pistols.
    Currently casting and loading: .32 Auto, .380 Auto, .38 Special, 9X19, .357 Magnum, .257 Roberts, .30 WCF, .45-70 Gov't.

    I know this is an old thread but I'll throw in my 2 cents anyway. I bought a GLOCK 23 when they first came out. At that time about '92-'93 nobody said a word about lead bullets in 40 cal GLOCKS. Also FEDERAL Cartridge brought out a 180gr SWAGED LEAD 180GR load. I put 10 boxes thru my GLOCK 40 with just a bit of leading. I cleaned the gun after every 100rds. Shot some Cast bullet loads using the LYMAN #40143 sized .401, neither load gave me decent accuracy. I bought a WOLF bbl when they came out. Not just to try lead bullets again, but to get a tighter & better supported chamber. No more "GLOCK smile". Been shooting that LYMAN bullet & the LEE #401-175-TC, no leading in the WOLF bbl with either bullet & NO GLOCK SMILE. Bought a 9mm WOLF conversion bbl too. I use the LYMAN #356402 & LEE #356-125-2R sized .356, no leading in that bbl either. I must have put 20,000 jacketed & 10,000+ lead through that old model 23. Never a problem of any kind. Good maintenance & good loading practices.

    Happiness is a Warm GUN & more ammo to shoot in it.
