Gents, if you wish to use only factory for self defense, fine. But- there has never, ever been a case recorded anywhere in the US where reloaded ammo used in a shooting was brought up as "more deadly" load or anything like that. I understand this has been widely touted in gun rags and internet sites, but it just hasn't happened. Professional witness/gun writer Massad Ayoob started that idea and it's been investigated to death. Ayoobs defense of his opinion concerns gun shot residue, not "more deadly" ammo and even his gun shot residue defense is weak. Factories change powders all the time. Lots vary, it's all dependent on reproducing exactly the conditions under which the shot was fired.
Incidentally, I asked Ayoob how much time he had working as a street cop. He wanted to send me his educational records....

I also understand that no one one wants to be the "test case", got it 100%. I'm just trying to put to death the rumor that it's common for the prosecution to bring up reloads. It's not, at all. And there has also never, ever been a case where it was argued that reloaded ammo proved any intent of any kind. Use factory if you want, but please stop repeating myth. Truth is, if you ever have to shoot anyone your life as you know it will end.

BTW- "Bullet heads" are called "bullets". There's no such thing as a bullet head. A loaded cartridge is not a bullet, it's a cartridge or round. I believe what Tony is calling a carousel is a turret press or possibly a progressive press. No ridicule intended Tony, but these things have proper names that make it far easier for people to understand what you're talking about.
