If you have ever tried to lap a polygonal barrel you will have a
better understanding why lead bullets and Glocks don't get along well. Its
the nature of a polygonal barrel that soft lead wants to skid across the
rifling and lock up. with a bullet it will actually shear the lead causing
high pressure.  The harder the lead the less the problem. If you haven't
had trouble just be patient.
