A met a gentlemen at the range that had plenty of fed problems, etc. with his Glock in .45 cal using 200 grain semi wad cutters. I had heard on time the Glocks barrels were not ramped to handle a wad cutter. In addition, that lead bullets are not recommeded for an EDM barrel. Any comments?

Lead in any form of a bullet is not a good idea out of a Glock as per the manual and most likely the cause of the problem. The wadcutter is so short that my guess is when it tries to feed it is sticking almost straight up when it reaches the feed ramp. Thus almost giving you a stove pipe with a live round. Just a little FYI the Glock barrels are hammer forged, not EDM.

It is true that Glock .45's do not feed semi wad cutters well. The reloaders forum over at GT has it mentioned often
