I Go With Frankmako...
First, I only buy new guns! I try to run 200-300 through any weapon on two different trips to the range...cleaning before the first and each time after. If I have 400-500 through with no problems after the first 50-100, I'm comfortable. I then try to shoot at least 100 of what ever I will be using for a self-defense round.

For the few I didn't get the results I want?...gone!
OMO...your opinion may vary...

Everything has a failure rate. Be it a gun, Ammo, your car, etc. Rates are usually measured in number of failures per hundred, thousand, million, etc.
The problem is that you can run a thousand rounds of a particular brand of ammo through a gun with no problem. You then deem that ammo as "reliable" and start carrying it. What if the first round you try to fire after that is the one in ten thousand?
I don't worry as much about the ammo. I worry more about keeping my guns properly maintained and functional. Good reliable ammo is just that, reliable. For the time you encounter a failure, just make sure that you remember all the appropriate "failure proceedures".
