That is the point of my post #18. Having arrested many folks over many years and involved in many trials, I just have never seen a case where the ammo mattered. As I stated above, face and neck tattoos do matter. In fact, visible t on a female matter more than on a man. Just the way we see people.Please site one case where hand loads were brought up and were the cause of someone involved in a sd defense shooting going to jail where he would have been let off if it weren’t for the handloads. I will wait…………
Hint: you wont find one. This myth that using handloads for a sd carry round is ridiculous. It has been repeated ad nauseam to the point that people believe it when their is no proof of it, in any case. Please stop repeating this myth.

It also matters what jurisdiction you are in. In California or New York or Massachusetts, an AK or AR might set off a prosecutor or grand jury or regular jury. Just imagine if you defended your home with an AR with this lower.
I am not aware of a case where one of these showed up in a courtroom, however, I would not want to be the guy that used one in a questionable shooting. If you have them great, enjoy them. But when things go bump in the night grab the other one, the one that looks like what the police or military might carry. And if you end up on the stand, you can say that you simply kept the same gun at home for defense as the police officers who run the metal detector at the courthouse you are sitting in.
Same goes for any "normal" looking gun that one or more people on the jury might have at home. Maybe you used a double barrel shotgun, the one recommended by Joe Biden, I have a 12 gauge coach gun with exposed hammers, we call it Old Joe. Or if you used a lever action rifle, the famous gun of the old west and deer hunter everywhere. Or of course the 1911, older than anyone in the courtroom and pretty easy to explain why you would have a 100 year old gun design. You only need one person on the jury familiar with the gun type you use, that person can explain the function to everyone else. That is why the bizarre looking stuff might not be a good idea.
My 2 cents.
