As far as I know, any manufacturer will void your warranty if using reloads and the ammo creates the problem. I've never heard of one voiding the warranty when the gun just broke and ammunition wasn't a contributing part of the problem.

I can load 40 S&W with jacketed hollow points for right at $7.50/50 compared to $18.00/50 for the least expensive HP stuff ATG offers. That's a savings of $10.50/50 or $210.00/1000. If I shoot 1000 rounds per month, I could buy a new gun every 3 months from the savings. Sounds like a fair trade for losing the warranty to me. Understand though, I'm talking about using my own reloads, not buying reloads from a commercial reloader.
