now that you mention that it does sound familar. Maybe that was my bad and they were just "recommending" not to use reloads.
Of course, I hate reloads for competition, on principle.
If it was up to me, everyone would use the same G17/Sig226/HKUSP/Beretta92/SW4506/COLT1911/Whatever and load it with UMC. Then we could really see where we all stand.
I know that is totally impractical, but I passionately dislike the extreme opposite: race guns that will only cycle if they are surgically clean and are loaded with (usually light)custom reloads that are more precisely controlled than a shuttle launch.
