Generally, most manufacturers print a disclaimer which refers
directly to "reloaded" ammo. I'll assume this is that to which you refer.
They are trying to protect themselves from liability, as reloaded
rounds are beyond their scope of control. Generally speaking,
reloaders are conscientious, careful and painstaking; following
set proper steps, and measuring powder scrupulously. Their
efforts are generally rewarded with higher end ammo quality,
for about the price of WWB ammo.
Worst case scenario, some goober with more money
than brains buys a bunch of gear, has no instruction
or guidelines, and doesn't bother to get, or read, any
manuals, with predictably disastrous results.
Lead rounds tend to distort more upon contact,
are heavier than jacketed ammo, and are hazardous,
to your health in the long term, if hand-loaded in large
quantities, without proper safeguards.
