New format looks great....a lot easier to navigate and easy on the eyes. Now if you can just do something about the .380 ACP ammo shortage. ;D

Thanks. I can and it's called reloading :). But even reloading equipment and supplies are hard to come by these days. Cabelas just told me they have no idea when my primers and powder are coming in. Get out the slingshot and bow and arrow. The inhumanity.

Now I am not ripping on Kahr, but I have read on other forums that you void your warranty by shooting reloadied ammo. Even if you broke a spring, I would not admit to even knowing how to reload if I was talking them about a warranty issue.

It's a risk you assume and that disclaimer is applicable to virtually every handgun/longun made today. In my case, I only shoot MY reloads, I load them to SAAMI specs starting with the lowest recommended charge and work my way up, have been reloading for over 25 years, and would never shoot someone else's reloads. Frankly, I have more confidence in my reloads than some of factory reloads that are sold or allegedly virgin ammo manufactured outside the US where quality may or may not be Job 1. If you feel that you can not take the time to reload safely, don't shoot enough to make it cost effective, and/or are unwilling to invest in in good equipment/instructional materials, reloading is not for you. What reloading does allow you to is shoot more for less, tailor your loads to reduce recoil and/or enhance accuracy - in short enjoy shooting more. And the more you shoot, the more proficient you become.

Uh, I have no issue with reloading. I have been doing it for 33 years, own dies for 17 calibers and cast for 5. I just would not admit it when I was talking to Kahr.

I too have more confidence in my loading, but since every "expert" says you should only carry factory ammo, I do also find and carry a load that functions in my carry guns and my P380 is what I consider a "better than nothing" gun to have with me.

Brent, I don't disagree. I do not rely on reloads for carry not because I don't have confidence in their ability to perform or function but because it introduces an additional concern that could be exploited by opposing counsel in the event of shooting, something we all hope will never happen. "Your Honor, factory ammunition wasn't good enough for the defendant, he had to whip up his own deadly....etc. etc." Why assume an additional risk (expect to go through hell as it is - emotionally and financially) particularly when there is effective factory ammunition at your disposal. More problems you don't need.
