We think this is hooey.
AR15.COM member "Austrian" (also an attorney) has been running down this potential myth for years. No one he has asked has been able to produce a citation to any court case or other proceeding which used loading data or choice of bullet to augment a criminal or civil judgment or sentence.
If you have ANY citations that would support this belief please forward them to Austrian via email.
