Well, I guess more than anything I was asking about information on Double Tap Ammo than insinuating that they were manufacturing hand loads although on a larger scale.
I'm qustioning how a recognized, commercial manufacturer of ammunition can be considered a "hand load." With respect to the argument that hand loads may increase the risk of a "***** in the armor" of a self-defense defandant, non-HL ammunition wouldn't meet the same standards of vague, unspecified, undocumented loading. The claim isn't that hotter = viciously deadly; rather, the claim is that undocumented = unknown = unjustifiable. Such claims may not be honest or truthful, yet they happen and succeed on occasion as an argument against a self-defense shooting.
