I've been getting a lot of mixed messages about using steel cased rounds in a glock. My local range does not allow them and they say they can damage the striker on my G17. I recently went to my local gun store for some ammo and accidently purchased some Barnaul 9mm and want to know if it is actually safe to shoot out of my G17. Any thoughts?

yes it is safe.......the steel used is very mild compared to that of your GLOCK.
The range won't let you shoot it because they don't want to have to sort it out of the brass casings that they re-sell for reloading.

My G23 will eat any and all ammunition..

If you get into dealing with reloads be sure that you don't get any "hand-me downs" because all it takes is 1 round to be double charged and then BOOM there goes you glock.

FMJ is the way to go....I recommend staying away from lead ammunition with the stock barrels, the polygonal or whatever their called doesn't like lead ammo. If you want to shoot lead just get a regular after market barrel.

Cooper, Steel whatever glock will eat it up.
