CCW with handloaded ammo...
Is there any cautions for carrying handloaded ammo?
You should consider two areas.

One quality control. Your hand loaded ammo can be reliable if you are competent in how you hand load while using quality components and equipment.

Second, possible legal ramification.
Should you shoot someone, you may be arrested and charged with a crime. You may go to trial. The prosecutor may try to make an issue that you carried your hand loaded ammunition instead of what is commonly used by law enforcement. What you used was excessive and that you are a bad person who should go to jail (or something like that).
If you avoid the criminal charges and conviction; you may be sued by the person you shot or his/her estate and/or survivors in a civil action. The attorney there may also raise the issue of hand loaded ammunition . . .
