Need to be launched.

I am antsy to go do some target shooting, need to rectify this dry spell. Got new sights and trigger kit on 22pistol that need trying, got a new G20 that needs shooting/learning (wish I had MUCH more practice on it for bears but so be it), the rifles haven’t been out shooting long since last hunt in January.

Go to Lone Wolf and get you a slightly heavier recoil spring/guide rod and a titanium firing pin for that G20, if you're going to be shooting suped up bear loads. 22lb spring should do the trick. If you plan on reloading the brass, you should get an after market barrel. The stock Glock barrel will stretch the brass in the hot loads.

That hold true with the gen 4? Seemed like folks were saying that one soaks up the recoil a bit better than the stock gen 3 springs.

I have 180s to break it in and some Underwood 200 hard cast for Alaska.

Get your hunger games on. ;)

I'm not sure. I owned a Gen 3 and it helped absorb recoil. We you get into the 200gr plus range, it really batters your slide. If you're only going to load the bear loads while in bear country, you should be fine with the stock setup. If you plan on shooting those lots, then I'd upgrade. Full disclosure, I love tricking out my guns.

I am new to glocks but sounds like they designed the gen 4 to do better from normal through hot loads vs needing to shuffle springs. We’ll see. For now yes I plan to run some mags of bear loads to verify function but then carry those but otherwise shoot 180s for range time for now.

It will eat the 180s all day long. The case stretching for the hot loads will happen with the stock barrel though. If you don't reload, then this won't be an issue.

Nice thing about a Wolf barrel, too, is that it won't be button rifled so you can use lead bullets without leading your barrel.

You should be able in invest in an after market barrel with full case support without replacing the springs.

Some of the higher end hard case bear loads have a special coating to reduce fouling. As long as you clean the barrel and don't allow an excessive lead buildup, it should be fine.

Glock is polygonal rifling FYI. Yes the coated Underwood in moderation is supposed to be okay.
