The response's to Sam's 30/30 thread has me wondering if you feel safe shooting reloads of an unknow factor.

Generally no.


If Obama is the answer, must have been a pretty stupid question.

No I do not. I bought a gun from a guy and he wanted to give me about 60 of his "pet" loads for it and raise the price. I asked if I could just get the recipe. I don't trust other people I know how meticulous I am.

No


Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Give a man a welfare check, a forty ounce malt liquor, a crack pipe, an Obama phone, free health insurance. and some Air Jordan's and he votes Democrat for a lifetime.

There's only one guy that will load anything that I will put through a gun...............

DD

He also taught me to reload.

When it comes to protecting eyes, fingers and fine weapons he is about as anal as they come.................

and there's only two people that I will load for.....

Mine, my son's, and my son-in-law's are all I'll shoot.There are very few others I'd consider.

I'd shoot one good friend's reloads without too much fear. He's a smart and meticulous guy. Just some random dude's reloads? Hell no.

Only the guy who taught me how to reload. He has been gone a while but I shot his reloads in several of his rifles over the years. Beyond that, no.

AKA factory ammo? Not very often. I don't trust them.

My hunting and shooting partner loads all of mine because he is more anal than I am, so I'm ok with that.

I do not, strange thing is others that know me ask to shoot mine all the time.

I let them shoot a couple while I am with them on the bench, that's it.

always concerned about liability.

If the ammo is free, yes.


If I have to pay for it....probably.

I bought a first run Smith M610 from a colleague a few years ago. It was the same gun I sold him in the early '90's. He is an avid gun guy and gave me 1600 rounds of his handloads with the purchase. I know him well and have zero issues shooting his handloads.
