So if all handgun calibers are concidered weak and not that effective in stopping the bad guy why do we (self included) spend the extra money on high performance ammo?
1. Seeking any additional edge possible for the firearm we carry day in/day out.
Seems we may be better off buying the more inexpnensinve types of ammo (FMJ) and getting more time behind the gun?
I thought everyone (at least those who feel they should be responsible and train) was already doing this. This last question gives two of the three reasons for reloading:
1. Less expensive, which should lead to...
2. Getting more time behind the gun.
I kick in primary reason number three:
3. Custom tuned loads for your firearm (you can even create something which closely approximates your self defense load for reduced practice cost)
