Being Sued for using Reloads for self defense

Im sorry if this is a repost, but It was brought to my attention today by a co-worker about this topic and i did alittle looking and have found a couple articles about it. There basically saying that you can be sued if you use reloads for self defense due to your making the round more powerful than it should be or something crazy like that. Is this actually happening that people are or could possibly be sued if you are using reloads for your self defense rounds? To me this sounds absolutley crazy. Anyone with more information about this topic or knows more about lawyers crazy ways please chime in. I only use reloads for self defense for 90% of my guns. The only one that i don't have reloads in right now is my 9mm pistol, which i have some of the zombie ammo in.

There is a sticky in the "Law and Civil Rights" section right here on TFL that has things for you to read.

You can be sued for anything. ANYTHING!!!. It doesn't mean the suit will be successful, but lawyers drive expensive cars and live in big houses for a reason.

I know plenty about "lawyers' crazy ways." Lawnboy has already pointed you to the archive of threads on this, and there ought to be plenty of reading in there for you.
I'm a lawyer, but I'm not your lawyer. If you need some honest-to-goodness legal advice, go buy some.

As Lawnboy pointed out, there is a wealth of information already archived on the matter.
