In one caliber, I personally had a factory Winchester Ranger T squib load; Winchester subsequently replaced that case of ammunition. I've seen a thread where primers were backing out of factory Hornady ammunition, locked up the revolver. I recently saw a magazine AD warning of a recall on some factory Remington ammunition. If a person was (is) concerned about the quality control of factory ammunition and used handloads because they could assure all of the ammunition had an appropriate powder charge, would this be a legitimate defendable reason for using handloads? I have some 185 gr. 45 acp handloads that I made with Hornady XTP bullets, new brass and carefully loaded it on a single stage press, visually checking each power charge and pulling random rounds to check OAL. Quality control is beyond outstanding, IMO. I checked velocity over my chrono and my handload is within 10 fps average of a Remington 185 gr. factory load, but my handload produces much less flash / blast. I trust this ammunition to feed & fire and have tested 200+ rounds of it in my pistol. I am very inclined to use this ammunition for SD. Is the quality control rationale defendable / legitimate reason to use handloads (assuming the care I've described) ? Thanks.
