Reloading for autos and matching the reliability of factory ammo takes a lot of care and attention to detail, I don't recommend doing it for defense ammo.
Maybe it's just me, but no matter how hard I tried I'd always have those annoying jams with my handloads that I'd alibi off with one excuse or another.
One exception was my PT-92, which would gobble up anything I ever put together and never malfunctioned, it was what made me a Taurus fan. All my other autos were finicky about reloads. I owned 4 Colt 1911's, it was common to have a jam or two with my handloads during a shooting session. Old reliable indeed.
