Agreed, as a matter of fact however, my dad loaded some 44 loads too hot for the desert eagle, up to 1500ft lbs, and the ejector pin inside the bolt was cut in half!, so I can see a companies point being weary about reloads, however, the reloaded ammo Ive fired jams less then factory ammo.......so, no need for them to know.

Would you use your reload for self-defense use. I've always thought a recipe in a reloading manual should be okay for self-defense also. I think in both cases it comes down the liability issue. I may be wrong but it's what I think the bottom line is. Who would be libel for your blown up gun should that happen? Or who would be libel for injuries. Just my thoughts.

I trust my reloads for self defense, but there is a few legal people who are trying to use the reloads in self defense cases to get a judgement against lawful people that use them.

See there is the difference. If I screw up and break my gun I know it was me and I have the guts to say to myself I broke it I need to fix it. Breaking some thing because your stupid then expecting someone else to pay to fix it is just wrong.

If I ruin my gun through my own stupity, I will not try to hand it to the manufacturer and expect them to fix it under warranty. My stupidity, my problem.
For anti-personnel use, I will not use reloads. One less issue to explain in court.

Another way to think about it this issue is the money you save by reloading. If you are a diligent shooter, after a couple of years the money you save on buying commercial ammo could likely more than pay for another gun if something did happen and the manufacturer refused to honor the warranty. But let's be realistic, if you are loading within spec, they will have no idea.

Default Reloads

Would I trust my life to my reloads? Yes.
Would I trust my life to someone else's reloads? No way.

It would be difficult to prove a load was a reload unless you used a primer different than the case originally came with.
