*frantically searches for primers dropped around reloading bench*
Yep…called an old friend on Tuesday. Asked him if he had 9mm,38 or 223. He was in the act of loading 45. No calibers I needed. Asked ME if I knew where he could get pistol primers😖😞😕
Good luck finding any primers. So happy I purchased during times of plenty.
Hey guys. I have thousands upon thousands of boxed primers stored in ammo cans packed with desiccant. Particularly small pistol. So many in fact, you would be amazed.
What do you guys think about that?
The level of this ammo panic has actually convinced me to get a flint lock.
Speaking of that, who here has some knowledge of flint locks? Are the Pedersoli ones good?
Our own Jon Wayne Taylor has knowledge on this.
Perhaps he’ll see this, or you could email the site and ask that the question be forwarded to Jon.
Or maybe someone else can chip in?
I kinda wish I had some knowledge there. I think that would be a nice challenge to hunt with. There’s a dude that hunts with one on one of the sportsman channels.
What’s a flint lock? Does it shoot an arrow? Like a sharp piece of flint fitted on a straight piece of wood?
I do. And they are ok.
Call Jim Chambers at Jim Chambers Flintlocks. Ask him for who he would recommend for a builder of one of his kits or, if you have the time, make your own.
I know this isn’t related, but Dan, can you confirm/debunk this image I found on the internet about 4 hours ago?
It’s an apparent ad for a Keltec P50, a 5.7, P90-mag fed pistol. (Image isn’t portable in the comments here)
I’ve seen that image and can neither confirm nor deny the existence of that pistol. Yet.
Maybe in future when available components.
In the age of the internet, buying a hardback reloading manual is like buying a set of encyclopedias.
In the age of the internet, depending on load data on the internet is the height of optimism.
I agree. I’ll take the hard copy any day as I have access to it whether or not I have a power source or access to the net. Isn’t independence one of the pillars of being able to survive if things get bad?
I’m happy to see updates since there have been a number of new powders come on to the market in the past few years that are really worth a look, especially in the long range/slow peak rates. Many new cases as well but those don’t interest me quite so much as the propellants.
Nosler is pretty pricy to me. So I don’t shoot much of them. But I do have the Hornady, Lyman, and Barnes reloading books. I make a lot of fast bullets and typically Hornady or Barnes for some exotic bullets if I need them.
*cast* bullets – not so much “fast” bullets.
I got one coming. I have Nosler bullets in pistol and rifle and it will be nice to have yet another manual to read over the holidays.
