duplicating factory defense ammo (9mm)
the +P loads that you buy for self defense...who here is duplicating these rounds? if i wanted to duplicate would i just use the same weight HP and work up a load to match the velocity of some of the popular self defense rounds? how are you guys getting it done? or do you only reload "range" ammo?
edit: when i say work up a load i mean choosing a powder that will let me duplicate the velocity's of the factory stuff but stay within "safe" limits....taking the info from a reloading manual.
Are you certain about that???
It could also go like this:

This poor car jacker didn't have a chance as nick060200 became the Judge, Jury, and executioner with his specially designed Corbin self defense man killer rounds! This was not self defense!"
Your false rumor about reloads vs factory loads in court has been copy/pasted around forums for far too long!!!
If you always practice with reloads, and always carry reloads how can you be called out on ammo choice issues in court. If you practice with standard fmj ammo, and then carry high power self defense ammo, then you can be called out on it.
