I do have several all but empty boxes of assorted SD ammo still around but really don't keep any specifically for Miggy's reasons. My source for my normal GD 124 +P carry stuff tho is a large quantity I got at a gun show and so with all I have left I will actually have ''samples'' on hand a long time yet.
My thinking - any forensic analysis of my empties will not show a resizing die mark and so it'll be apparent it is factory origin - unless of course I had loaded brand new cases - but that'd be unlikely for our average handgun cals - and probably so for most folks I think.

I do this. Once a year I shoot and replace all my carry ammo. I do this on my B-Day so I won't forget when I need to do this.

for those of you that load 2 higher capacity mags (mine at 15 each) and do this how do you differentiate between the ammo in the 2 different mags for which was which that you held back. Interesting Idea but I have 2 mags of 15 that I interchange plus the chambered round and GDs come 20 to a box.

Have you considered how it would look in court if you saved some ammo just in case you were involved in a shooting?

Yes, it would look prudent, same as carrying a gun.

With any given boxes of ammo I have used, I have always had extras sitting about, in the boxes. Whenever switching to a new brand/model of ammo, I'll still have the priors hanging around. Though, I have not "held back" any rounds formally. But that's a great idea. I keep the receipts. I've labeled boxes previously, to keep track of the lots. Might be worth being a bit more formal about it, for the reasons stated.
Thanks for the reminder!

Almost as bad as carrying a gun just incase you need to shoot someone!
