    That's a spin off the the legit warning not to shoot exposed lead bullets through a Glock barrel. Cheap reloads are often lead or softpoint bullets. As long as its FMJ or JHP bullets, its fine.

    i'd be wary of no name reloads, but GA has a pretty good reputation and i've found their quality on par with factory new ammo.

    I've heard many good things on other gun forums about their ammo. Using reloads from a well known reputable place like GA Arms won't void your Glock's warranty. I've shot some of their .40 ammo a long time ago, it was loaded kinda weak compared to factory ammo, but for the price it was ok. I hear their Gold Dot hollowpoint stuff is top notch, although I prefer to stick with Gold Dot bullets from Speer.

    yes, i've used lots of their 55 gr. .223 for practice. not a defense load, as it's not at nato pressures, but it's never NOT worked, and betwixt me and several friends, we've fired several thousand of their .223 and quite nearly a few hundred of their .44 mag. never a problem.

    yeah, the .44 mag that we use is GDHP, i forget what weight and velocity, but it's pretty hot.

    I bought 500 rnds of 9mm (115gr) from them. To be honest, at first I thought it was crummy ammo, then I discovered that my Tec-9 preferred the 124gr NATO. Upon retrospect, I feel it is good stuff and you wouldn't be wasting your money by buying it.

    i haven't found it any dirtier than other milspec ammo, but it's certainly not as clean as Black Hills match or the higher end commercial loads.

    It really doesn't matter if you clean your firearms after you use them.
