Well do ya? Why or why not? Can you even get hollow point bullets? Obviously I don't reload (yet, no room in the house)
In our CHL classes we strongly advise to carry what is available on the market, ie what anybody can buy at the store.
The thinking is.. if you "reloaded it" maybe its hot or a special load. Its something a lawyer can use against you.
When I purchase PDA ammo, I mark the box as bought for pistol (sn#) to identify it if there is a question. Just another step in CYA..
Civil suit is a big concern, as well. The person/person's family can sue you. If you used, what their lawyers are able to construe, as a hot load, you can be painted as a negligent gun owner using "expiremental rounds" purposefully looking to injure or kill someone. Same with using "zombiemax" ammo. You could painted as someone who lives on the fringes of sanity/reality, looking to protect yourself against non-existent dangers.SeventiesWreckers said:I've heard that being tossed around, but I can't see how that would work. It's not against the law to load your own ammunition. If you defend yourself, and it is deemed justified under the law, no charges are filed. So how could the bullet you used be submitted for evidence in a case that doesn't exist?
I just use store bought premium brands for carry, because I can't see much room for improvement.
