This was brought up on another board ans since I carry handloads almost exclusively, it is of interest, but not concern.
I've always heard the old caveat to never carry handloads for self defense because of an increased risk of both civil prosecution and criminal.
As Skidmark and some others here can attest, I carry some unusual rounds. I like big holes.
Civil issues, I agree with but no matter what you carry, you'll get sued.
Criminal is another thing though. I have never been able to verify (and neither has anyone else I know) a case where someone was prosecuted for the type (assuming it was legal) of ammunition used in a defensive shooting.
This is only fringe OC so Mike may give it the boot, but until then, has anyone found a verified case. Please don't quote Ayoob. He's not verifiable.
As the ammo shortage continues, seems more people are carrying handloads.
