reloads ?

Would you use your own 45 acp reloads for CC ?

I loaded some with a 185 gr hp over 5.3 of unique and it seems a bit light. Does anyone have any recommendations or suggestions ?

I probably would if that's what was in the gun at the time. What you have to remember is when you get in court (hopefully not) over the shooting, the prosecuting attorney is gonna try to tear you up over using handloads with their terrible effects versus factory loads which are acceptable. GW

No offense to Rebs for closing this one.

Two reasons:

1) It's a good question but the discussion turns nasty, quick.

2) It's come up enough that we have a sticky thread for it:
