    Thats the first time I ever heard that,I cast lead bullets and reload for all my guns,around 5 to 6 cents a round for handgun ammo can't be beat,and around 8 cents a round for 223 is amazing

    I am pretty sure guns can't tell the difference between reloads and factory loads. They can tell the difference between in-spec and out-of-spec cartridge geometry, and springs may react differently to different powder loads, however.

    I have shot quite literally thousands of rounds of Georgia Arms "Canned Heat" in 9mm, .45ACP, and .40S&W through a variety of my SIGs. I have also shot thousands of rounds of my own reloads in 9mm and .45ACP. I think I found 2 rounds of GA Arms that had obvious bullet setback when I went to stuff them in a magazine, but never a problem with any round that of theirs that I've fired. Of course, I have seen folks found more than two unusable rounds in a single 5-round box of WWB, so I think GA Arms' record is pretty godd.

    Also, Eric the Ammoman usually has some awesome deals on ammo. Right now he has a thousand rounds of factory 9mm for cheaper than any remanufactured stuff. Since his prices all include shipping, they are even better than they seem on first glance.

    Just another thought to throw out there.... Any ammo manufacturer can make rounds with either new or used brass. If they do the latter, we call it "reloaded" ammo, but that doesn't necessarily mean much. There are two main reasons we look to "factory" or new ammo when we buy.

    1. Boxed factory ammo is produced in lots, and the manufacturer keeps exemplar ammo in stock that can be used for ballistics evidence in a court of law. For example, you are involved in a defensive shooting; you claim the scumbag was ten feet away when you fired, and his sleazy defense lawyer says he was thirty feet away and you are a trigger-happy nut-job. You have the box from your defensive ammo, so you can get an expert to request exemplar rounds from the same lot from the maker. That will be used in test firing to demonstrate ballistics, GSR patterns, &c., to show at what distance you really nailed said scumbag. This is only a real issue for defensive ammo, not practice ammo, obviously.

    2. Factory ammo is insured, meaning if the manufacturer's rounds go boom, they can be held liable for the damage to the gun and any resulting injuries. You can get manufacturer's insurance even with used brass reloads, depending on who made it. My understanding is that when this applies, the ammo will be called "remanufactured" as opposed to "reloaded". This is what I found out when looking into buying bulk ammo for shooting classes; the range policy for such classes usually insists on "factory" ammo precisely because of the insurance implications. If you are worried about a voided gun warranty from bulk ammo, simply call the supplier and ask if the insure against such incidents.
