I got a email today from a friend.

The email had a link: https://www.ammoland.com/wp-co...rse202019-06-281.pdf

I personally am not yet at the point that I need to do this, but I will start saving my fired primers.

There is a lot of information at the link, including safety and toxicity information. (46 pages of data)

Most primer compounds have toxic ingredients and are explosive by design.

So if you attempt to try this at home, follow the directions!

I've been watching a few reloading forums where guys are doing this. I've also started saving my spent primers. My research, limited as it is, has shown the process to be safe enough, but very corrosive. I'm saving old primers in case I ever get desperate enough. I hope I never get there.

I save mine also but for scrap brass price,got to gallons just waiting for price to go up.
You are better to find an old guy that does not reload these days and deal with it that way.
I have sold some back stock at the current price at Powder valley to local folk.

Luckily I’m still a long ways off from the idea of making primers. If I do start to get towards minimum stock I’ll go to a higher level of conservation.

My stock is high in certain areas, that option is to rotate into that type of platform. As an example is that NIB 7mm-08 that has a bunch of ammo matched & ready. Then there’s a few 30-06’s I don’t use much, supposedly good for most anything.

I have read about ‘the guy with one rifle’, just hasn’t applied here yet.

One of the guys I shoot with every week has done something like that and now shoots a .44-40 on a regular basis.

My small primer situation is getting pretty critical. I played with this a couple of months ago and was able to make some ammo that actually worked using a !ethos similar to what he described as H-48...but only about 50% actually fired. The other concern is that it's horribly corrosive, at least the way I did it. It's not a great option, but at least I know it can work if I really really need it. Like others here, I'll probably switch to shooting large primer guns and burn through my stock of those before I resort to this on any significant scale.
