We started to talk about this in another thread but it should be it's own discussion.
I've heard the argument that one should not use handloaded ammo for personal protection in case you find yourself in court after using your firearm LEGALLY in self defense. I'm talking legal carry, defense of life use of deadly force. That you might be portrayed as some bloodthirsty type who made his own ammo just for killing people, etc.
And then there is the argument that factory ammo is more reliable.
I'm not so sure I agree with first one but I can maybe see the logic in the second one but, I, and many others load our own for bear protection where your life could depend on your ammo going bang.
At this point I find myself with factory ammo in my carry gun just cuz I have some. But, I load my own for my hunting and potential bear protection rounds and can load for my carry gun as well.
