I can't really figure out whether or not I have the earlier "kaboom" barrel.

Here are some pictures; the first three are from my pistol, while the last one was pulled from the Internet for reference.

Does my Glock have the less dangerous chamber dimensions?

"A day without Glocks jamming is like a day without sunshine."

Yep, got the memo...

I use to like my 17L and then I got an X-5.

It doesn't have the same appeal after that.

Fired Cases - Measurements

I need your opinions on these fired casings.

Are they unsafe for reloading, and could result in a "kaboom?"



They all have a subtle bulge (look at the distortions in the shadows) at where the lack of case support is most prominent, typically a little bit forward of the base.



Typically, this area measures around 0.4205" just forward of the base.



On fired casings, this increases to around 0.4250" at the same area,...



...to around 0.4325" to where the bulge is more prominent.

Whenever I'm reloading .40 S&W and I know the brass was put through a stock Glock barrel, I'll process the brass through a Lee Bulge Buster and all is good again. Of course, the standard caveat to inspect the cases for any flaws still applies.
