    Question about reloads

    When breaking in a new gun, when is it ok to begin using reloads? Is it better to start with factory ammo or does it matter?

    as soon as you have enough brass to reload. Just about every owners manual will tell you "Use only high quality, original factory manufactured ammunition." So I set up a little factory on my reloading bench. YOU ARE THE QUALITY CONTROL MAKE THEM RIGHT.

    It shouldn't matter unless you are a careless reloader; in which case 'breaking in' is going to take on a whole different meaning anyway.

    I'm actually talking about reloads purchased online, not done myself. Cool to shoot in a brand new pistol?

    Ahhh. Well the pistol won't care one way or the other. As long as they are a reputable reloader, you should be OK.

    The one word of caution I would mention is be sure they have a solid reputation for quality. If you kaboom any gun with a reload, you are probably going to be writing off the gun, so I would make sure you know who you are buying from.

    I would be hesitant to buy reloads from an individual or unproven entity. If a round is charged outside of SAAMI standards you will likely have a failure, injury and no recourse.

    A properly reloaded cartridge is no more harmful than a cartridge produced by a factory.
