I was at the range today doing some practice transitioning from one target to another. I was using up some 147gr X-Treme, two different loads, loaded to about 875fps and 915fps in my G17. They're both soft shooting minor PF loads. Then I switched to my G30 and 185gr JHP. From the G30, these only do about 765fps. On the first trigger pull, there was a bang, but no recoil. I instinctively froze, thinking "did I just have a squib?", but then I saw I'd kicked up a cloud of dust in the berm behind the target. I guess this is how you know when your .45acp load is "soft enough"...when it feels like a squib compared to soft 147gr 9mm loads. It made me think, using ammo like this at a match really is a huge advantage over someone using factory ammo (unless you hesitate during the match, wondering if you just squib'd)...and should it be allowed / should there be a power factor floor? The trouble is, if GSSF disallowed use of reloads, it'd be really tough to enforce, and it'd turn off a lot of the regulars. A PF floor means a chronograph stage, at least for all the people shooting non-factory ammo...and that's extra resources...and I also wonder how you'd be sure people shot the same ammo at the the match stages and chrono stage? Obviously, I've never been to a match where this is done...only heard about it.
