    If he doesn't have the primers stored in airtight cans (20MM/50cal) then the storage life is going to be much shorter and if he lives in a high humidity area even faster.

    I have a buddy who is a competition shooter in Australia and they now reload but it is expensive as the gov't taxes everything in Brit based societies people like to do except sex and if they could get a counter put on women they would do that too.

      The old INDEPENDENT AMERICAN ONLINE MAG (now sadly out of print, but all three years are available on disk) had a series of articles on how to make your own powder, from black and orange, to cordite and single and double based. PLEASE NOTE! This is NOT a good idea! It is extremely dangerous!! As in blow up in your face, and the building you are in with you! However, under Obammy, it might be the only game in town.

          Making your own primers is risky, much better to stock up now. Remember to cache it in many different locations.

            Anybody hear about reloading primers with caps? Going to test some out tomorrow to see if I can. Ammosmith has some really good YouTube vids on this.

              Back from the range. The cap primers worked in my Beretta 92fs. The double paper cap primer sounded a little dull when fired but the one paper cap and the one plastic cap fired normally. Couldn't tell the difference between it and a factory primer. I don't have a crono so I couldn't tell you any difference other than my own opinion. It is definitely a viable alternative in a pinch. I'm not worried about pressures because I'm using them in my lead cast Boolits and are running at starting load specs. If anything my load pressures need to be increased due to the light primer pressures. Going to load up more and test reliability as best as I can.
