I want to try loading for my brother who has a 9mm semi-auto ruger.

Somewhere I read a thread about not using cast bullets in a 9mm ruger SP101. I know that's a revolver, but would that apply to semi-autos as well? That sounds ludicrous to me - a revolver that can't take cast bullets?

Also, my Lee Modern Reloading Manual has a note at the top of the .40S&W pages that says something about only for guns that fully support the case? How do you know when you have a gun that doesn't fully support the case? Are they referring to Glocks? I've heard that they have a weird style of construction.

Black Jaque:

I had a P85 once that I shot only cast (Lee) 124 RNs through. It would empty a 15-round clip as fast as anything, never jammed. Only reason I traded it off was that gawd-awful trigger.... Didn't have any problem with bulged brass, either, as I recall.
