Well, all the anti lead regulations doesn't help, I can't find free lead anywhere, so I just buy bullets already cast or jacketed.I often wondered why with all the anti gun rhetoric and taxing ammo at ridiculous rates how you keep people from reloading their own ammo granted there are ways that I can think of that I won't mention but as we bandleaders are a resourceful lot and there's always away to get around a problem with a bit of engineering.
The more they tax and restrict the more innovative an already innovative group will get.Well, all the anti lead regulations doesn't help, I can't find free lead anywhere, so I just buy bullets already cast or jacketed.
They can try to tax ammo components, but besides powder and primers, as time and 3d printing advancement continues, we can start making our own copper/polymer bullets or just all polymer bullets. Hopefully in time a heavy, dense polymer can be made that better simulates the weight and relative softness of lead, but has a higher melting temperature.
I have several connections in the automotive tire business , my wheel weight supply comes from them, takes quite a bit of sorting . Many steel and non lead weights in the buckets. And tons of smegma when I pre-melt into ingots from brake dust and road grime.
For years now, all I have to do is sit outside hipster coffee joints and wait for them to throw out all those nice avocado pits. ... Then I can carve them into new bullets! For free!
