Not to sidetrack the thread too much but the issue is more of civil liability than reliability. "You shot my baby boy with them high powered holler points exploding bullits that you made up rather than having a factory load like the cops use". Don't be confused by facts, juries are frequently lead by their emotions with the guidance of a smooth talking attorney trying to own everything that you do. This is after you have been cleared of criminal charges.
