Lee 401-175 Cast PC Bullet in Polygonal and Traditional Rifling

Just messing around with my Glock 23 and a new Lone Wolf Barrel. I shoot some cast and powder coated lead bullets through the factory Glock and the Lone Wolf-Alpha Wolf barrel. Thanks for Watching.

I think you’re right on the edge of a rabbit hole. I’ve owned a couple 23’s and honestly never thought the factory barrel was all that accurate due to being massed produced to accept the majority of ammo.

Would like to see the difference between factory fmj through both barrels and see if the velocity and accuracy is the same results.

I would assume, with the lubricity of PC, there would be even less chance of leading the barrel. Your mileage may vary, I guess?

Thanks for the info on Powder Coated bullets through Polygonal rifling. I think it’s a good call to run a patch through after shooting the Powder coated bullets.

I commented, asking if this was OK to do? They said they had no… Read more »
