Not exactly "smart-assed" questions. They seemed directive in nature to try to have a better idea of better specific info to give.
Some folks may have guns that are known to be finicky feeders with certain ammo. Certain calibers may not have adequate penetration with certain loads.
Snub nosed guns may do better with certain loads over loads intended for service sized guns.
Environment can be a factor depending on the type of clothing one may encounter.
I like Speer Gold Dot short barrel loads for my .380, but prefer 127gr +P Winchester ranger loads in 9mm, then back to Gold Dots for .45.
So, asking for additional data should not automatically brand someone as a smart ass. If I had to pick I'd rather be a smart ass than a dumb ass.
