HOLD on there

Who tosses out Ammo during a ammo shortage?
That is a crime in itself.

Funny, Fishy and strange,

Funny, Fishy and strange, Ammo isn't hard to get rid of. If you got money you can buy gold, ammo is another story. Its getting hard to find components to reload that are affordable. It takes a bunch of gold to buy lead.

Actually Lead is easy to find

Actually Lead is easy to find if you look outside the functioning society box, and think a like a Survivalist.

OLD dried up or already busted Car Batteries yield about 5 to 6 lbs.

Broken and used Car Tire weights can be purchased from lots of tire dealers. They are happy to sell them for a number of reasons.

A simple bullet mold

A cheap dollar store pot is $1.00
Warning! You must do this OUTSIDE, due the Lead fumes. Because Lead melts at very low temps.,
a simple propane single burner camping stove
works and is about $34.95 with 1 tank with it.

He has not failed me yet.

BTW:
If you need a reliable source for reloading materials?
I know one who has current reloading inventory
in the Warrenville SC area.

Just email me.

Hey!, If it's .45, .38, .25 or

7.62 mm I will gladly take it off their hands. No questions asked. (That means, nobody ask me any questions.)

A little Second Amendment humor there...
