    What does the grouping look like @ 20 yards? Being able to hit the target is essential.

    Metal cartridge ammo was originally made with 19th century machine tools and common metals.

    Percussion primers have been around since the 17th Century.

    Many people today are quite capable of recreating that process.

    Make friends with them.

    Cartridge ammo takes an industry, not an individual.

    It can be done by an individual. I wouldn’t load the cases to the max. But it can be done.

    Nothing wrong with that...but, with no 22lr or shotshell capabilities, you're cutting yourself out of a lot of small game.

    But the 45 Colt is a black powder round. As long as you had primers, you could reload your brass with black powder.

    Just because I can make mercury fulminate doesn't mean I WANT to make it. There's a reason 'mad as a hatter' lives on as an idiom...

    You'd be surprised at just what an individual can make with brains and some know how.
