I just wanted to let you know I loaded some 185gr XTPs for my 460 Rowland. They do open up at 1500 fpsI'm not too worried about who loaded my ammo. If it was a good shoot it will still be a good shoot regardless of what I shot him with. If a DA wants to make an issue of why I used hard cast lead bullets, Let him. They have been in common usage for over 100 years. If I was using Remingtons Golden Sabres it was because I have confidence that they will do as advertised and they were on sale that week. Right now I have about a lifetime supply of 185 grain XTP bullets in 45 cal. A friend bought some and didn't like them. I traded hard cast bullets for the open box of nearly 500. Later on He wanted to know If I would take some more . He had ordered 2500 and waited too long to return them. So If I get into a SD shooting using 45 caliber it will probably be with the 185 gr XTP's. If I load them to the speed that they are supposed to open at I have no fear that they won't do the job!
The only difference between my reloads and factory ammo is that the case headstamps may not match. DR
The suicide issue you speak of if I recall correctly was a man who had a revolver I believe it was a Dan Wesson that he didn't know how to unload. When he tipped it muzzle up to dump the rounds a couple stuck in the cylinder and didn't know how to remove them. He the hid the gun which his deranged wife or girlfriend found. And shot herself When the crime scene folks showed up and did gun shot residue tests she had non on her hands. It was later found they were very light target loads he however was accused of murder and had a very tough time. I recall the article it is re issued every once in a while on the variace gun magazines and sights.If I remember right the issues with reloads have not had anything to do with the bullets but with proving who fired the shot! One was a suicide the other I don't remember the details. But it came down to powder residue. Like I said before if its a cut and dry good shoot, it still will be with reloaded ammo.
As far as My reloads being inferior, Ill put them up against any factory loaded ammo! DR
