There are liability issues and liability insurance is a good investment.

Guy filed a suit against him alleging that one of his reloads blew up his gun and messed up his hand. Later, it came out that the guy was actually using his own reloads produced using an erroneous (and waaaay over-pressure) load recipe and he figured that he'd make good on his loss by going after my friend's livelihood.
These days where lawsuits are filed at the drop of a hat it is the best wealth protection you can have. People sue for their own acts of stupidity and the expenses of defending a claim can mount fast and are likely not recoverable even if you prevail.
