Is it normal or not, when ever I change my tuning to something like Drop C or Drop A, my low string become very loose and sensitive. If I fret the string too hard, the pitch will increase by at least a quarter step, and I usually play metal with these tunings so I need active and hard hands to play, is this a string problem that I can't change, if so, then what are the best strings for Drop tunings??

I use a bass string (.64 I think) for the low string when I tune really low but you could try .11 to .52. It also depends on the scale length, longer scale lengths = more tension.
#3
I have 12-54 on my guitar which works perfectly for Drop C, for Drop A I'd have no idea.
#5
I use 13-61 with a wound third for drop A.

I have 11s and they work with Drop C - Try Ernie Ball "Not Even Slinky" or "Power Slinky"

they might be what you're looking for. I use Beefy Slinkys on all my guitars

This really belongs in EG, not in GB&C.
