I've heard you should put reloads in a semi-automatic though. I'm just skiddish because my primary gun-advice buddy went to Front Sight and came back with a story about a guy blowing up a nice new Springfield with reloads, and then blowing up a second nice new Springfield with reloads.
Wait wait wait, I have had 2 guns blow up on me using factory ammo. One was a springfield clone of a hk and it was new and it needed to be headspaced correctly. Another was a baby desert eagle. So hold the presses.
Reloading is not rocket science. It takes respect. No drinking alchol, no smoking a dubbie, no pills no nonsense while your doing it. If your the type of person that can read a book and comprehend it and keep your attention on what your doing then you could probably do it with out a problem. If your the kind of person who forgets to close the refrigerator door, car door, miss an exit on the interstate then you probably should not reload.
