Default For you ammunition loading guys....

Regarding powder and primers, are you ever concerned about home owner's insurance restrictions? Local government regulations?

No need to worry because you can't find any primers!

I assumed everyone has at least 25,000+ primers and 100+ lbs of smokeless powder?

Im down to about 2K primers and 4# of powder. I did find about 1,500 already sized and primed 308, 30-06, and 223 that I did years ago and forgot about.

I’m down to around 18k primers and 40lbs. Not worried but getting concerned

I haven’t been shooting much since my second child was born almost two years ago so I will be fine for the near future.

I kinda hope the price for used brass goes up. Dont reload but have been saving my brass when I goto the range. Even if I don't reload but nice to pass them on something more than a few dollars for a baggie of 9mm brass.

That's not a lot of primers when you break it down 3125 primers and 12.5 lbs powder for each set

SP - 3125, about 16,000 rounds
SPM - 3125, about 7300 rounds
SR - 3125, about 3500 rounds
SRM - 3125, about 2500 rounds
LP - 3125, about 9700 rounds
LPM - 3125, about 5800 rounds
LR -3125, about 1950 rounds
LRM - 3125, about 1250 rounds

That's less than 48,000 rounds to be loaded and shooting 12k rounds a year 4 year supply, maybe if you only shoot a few boxes a week.

No problem.

The only thought was when we had "buffalo shoots" at our gun club. We mostly shot Sharps and I used black powder with my 45-70. Could not get black powder in SC so we would get it on trips to see the in laws up north. I would have 10-15 #'s of Swiss 1 1/2 from time to time. A friend of mine was a city police officer and he said it was "against the law" to have that much black powder in SC, but since it was used in a "sport", I would not be considered a risk. He did say to keep it quite.

Now for primers and off the shelf powders, there should not be any issues. Load......shoot......repeat!

Yes, I did look to see if there was an ordnance on how much powder I could store. Never found the ordnance so I moved on.

No, if the house burns down, the powder and primers won’t matter.

No, the primer is hardly flat and slightly cratered...maybe a little hot but a hot load will blow the primer before it splits the brass,, unless the case was old and overworked. Time for new brass.

Looks like that brass was sized with a dirty piece of pipe and a hammer....
