So what’s the best way to handle this situation? How can we prepare ourselves for the worst, while not blowing our mortgage payments on ammunition? And, also, how can we make sure we don’t run out of ammo – even if the normal ways of acquiring ammo are no longer around?

Reloading & Handloading Basics

Many preppers and shooters use the terms “reloading” and “handloading” interchangeably. And this is easy to do, especially since these two processes are so similar. For instance, each one involves the shooter making their own bullets.

Using special equipment, the shooter puts the primers into the cartridge cases, then adds the powder, then seats and seals the projectile into the cartridge, and makes the bullet and cartridge.

However, the intention and motivation for making their own bullets is unique to each process. For instance, Reloading is largely a resourceful act in order to save money. This helps the shooter keep their wallet full without having to purchase factory ammunition (especially since the parts to make them are fairly inexpensive).

Not to mention, Reloading is good for the environment, since it allows the maker to recycle the spent brass.

However, Handloading has different motivations. That’s because this process is more easily customized – the maker can produce either cost-effective ammo, or custom-made bullets. This is the same difference between fixing your own vehicle, and building a customized engine. You fix it yourself to save money, and you build your own engine to make it your own and experiment (or you need something nobody else is selling).

The Basics Of Making Your Own Bullets

Before we get into equipment, let’s examine some of the key points of this process:

  • Safety: Today, we use smokeless gun powders, which are a lot safer than the old black powders from way back when. Modern powders are now known as “propellants” – not “explosives” – which means they only burn when ignited, and are safe to use when handled responsibly.
  • Quality: Handmade ammo is typically just as good of quality – or better – than factory made ammo. Plus, you can fine-tune it to work with a specific firearm, which is a huge advantage.
  • Complexity: Making your own ammo is actually a very simple process, since you only need four things: primer, powder, bullet, brass case. When you fire the cartridge, the powder is ignited by the primer, and the powder moves the bullet out of the barrel. The brass case and used primer are all that remain. You can then reloaded the brass case over and over again!
  • Savings: It depends on how much you shoot. However, let me give you an example. Let’s consider 30-06 factory ammo, and say you can get each round for $2. From that, primer, bullet and powder equate to about 70 cents. So, then, $1.30 of each round is going to be spent on the brass case and the work of loading it. However, the beauty of reloading is you get to use these brass cases over and over again. So, in this scenario, you’ll be saving about 65% off factory ammo – about $26 per box of 20! This cost savings can allow you to practice more, and improve your shot.
  • Equipment: The up-front cost can be a bit pricey – you’ll be spending about $300-$500 on equipment. However, if you do a lot of shooting, this original cost can easily pay for itself – even in the first year.
Reloading Basics: The Equipment

It’s important to get familiar with the equipment you’ll need in order to start making your own bullets. Here’s some excellent information from RCBS Precisioneered Reloading on the stuff you’ll need to do this right:

Democrat Mayor Welcomes Illegals to Denver

after-barriers-were-placed-dozens-migrants

During a recent interview with CNBC, Denver Mayor Mike Johnston’s comments regarding the city’s approach to immigration underscore a troubling trend of prioritizing the interests of migrants over the well-being of American citizens.

Johnston’s admission that Denver is grappling with an influx of migrants is a damning indictment of the city’s failed open-door policies. Rather than acknowledging the inherent risks and challenges associated with unchecked migration, Johnston attempts to portray Denver’s approach as a delicate balancing act between compassion and pragmatism. However, his words betray a dangerous naivety that threatens to undermine the safety and prosperity of Denverites.

By championing an ideology of unlimited hospitality, Denver has effectively placed the burden of its misguided altruism squarely on the shoulders of its own citizens. Johnston’s assertion that the city is proud of its ability to manage the migrant crisis is not only arrogant but also deeply troubling. Instead of celebrating the city’s failure to control its borders, Denver should be prioritizing the needs and concerns of its own residents.

Johnston’s plea for federal assistance serves as a thinly veiled attempt to absolve Denver of its responsibility for the consequences of its reckless immigration policies. It is outrageous that hardworking taxpayers are expected to foot the bill for the city’s misguided generosity. Denverites should not be forced to accept cuts to city budgets and services in order to accommodate migrants who enter the country illegally.

Furthermore, Johnston’s insistence on portraying migrants as victims deserving of unwavering support only serves to exacerbate the problem. By perpetuating the myth of the noble migrant in need of rescue, Johnston glosses over the very real dangers and disruptions caused by uncontrolled immigration. Denverites deserve better than a mayor who prioritizes virtue signaling over their safety and prosperity.

It is time for Johnston and other proponents of open borders to face the harsh reality of their policies. Unrestricted immigration poses serious threats to national security, public safety, and economic stability. Denver cannot continue down this reckless path without risking irreparable harm to its own citizens.

In light of these challenges, it is imperative that Denver enact sensible immigration policies that prioritize the needs and interests of American citizens. This includes strengthening border security, enforcing immigration laws, and implementing measures to deter illegal immigration. Anything less would be a betrayal of the trust placed in Johnston by the people of Denver.

Texas Dem. Rep: No Taxes For Black Americans

phrase-reparations-black-community-on-banner

In a recent episode of the “Black Lawyers Podcast,” Rep. Jasmine Crockett, a Democrat from Texas, ignited a firestorm of controversy with her proposal to exempt Black Americans from paying taxes as a form of reparations. This suggestion has triggered widespread outrage among conservatives, who see it as yet another attempt to further racialize American politics and deepen divisions within society.

Crockett’s proposition, which she herself admitted may not be successful due to the fact that many within the Black community are already struggling financially and may not be paying taxes, has been met with condemnation from conservative voices across the country. Critics argue that such a plan would not only be ineffective in addressing the underlying issues faced by Black Americans but would also exacerbate racial tensions and perpetuate a victimhood narrative.

By singling out one racial group for special treatment through tax exemptions, Crockett’s proposal threatens to further polarize an already divided nation along racial lines. Conservatives view this as yet another example of the left’s obsession with identity politics, where race takes precedence over individual merit and personal responsibility.

Moreover, Crockett’s suggestion of tax exemptions as a form of reparations is seen as deeply misguided and unfair. Conservatives argue that reparations, if they are to be considered at all, should be based on need and merit, rather than race. By proposing blanket tax exemptions based solely on race, Crockett fails to address the complex socioeconomic factors that contribute to inequality and disadvantage in America.

Conservatives also express concern about the lack of consistency and coordination between federal and state approaches to reparations. Crockett’s call for tax exemptions at the federal level raises questions about how such measures would interact with existing state-level initiatives, potentially leading to confusion and inequity in the distribution of resources.

As the debate over reparations continues to intensify, conservatives are calling for a more thoughtful and inclusive approach that focuses on addressing the root causes of inequality and promoting economic opportunity for all Americans, regardless of race. Crockett’s proposal, they argue, only serves to further entrench racial divisions and undermine efforts to achieve genuine unity and progress in the United States.

Whoopi Goldberg Claims Conservatives Want to “Bring Back Slavery”

new-york-ny-october-28-whoopi

In a recent episode of ABC’s “The View,” Whoopi Goldberg stirred controversy with her startling claim that some Republicans are inclined to “bring slavery back.” The comment, made during a discussion about the Arizona Supreme Court’s decision to reinstate an 1864 abortion ban, has sparked widespread condemnation, with critics lambasting Goldberg for her inflammatory and unsubstantiated rhetoric.

Goldberg’s assertion, delivered in the heat of the panel discussion, has been roundly denounced as not only inflammatory but also deeply irresponsible. By equating Republican policies on abortion with a desire to resurrect one of the darkest chapters in American history, Goldberg not only demonstrated a profound lack of understanding of the issues at hand but also showcased a troubling disregard for reasoned discourse.

Conservative voices have been particularly vocal in their condemnation of Goldberg’s remarks, highlighting the egregious nature of her comparison and the harm it does to meaningful dialogue. They argue that such hyperbolic and baseless accusations only serve to further polarize an already divided political landscape, making it increasingly difficult to find common ground on important issues.

Moreover, critics have pointed out the dangerous precedent set by Goldberg’s rhetoric, warning of the potential consequences of allowing such inflammatory statements to go unchallenged. They argue that by indulging in sensationalism and distortion, Goldberg not only does a disservice to the public discourse but also undermines the credibility of her own platform.

In the wake of the controversy, Goldberg has faced mounting pressure to retract or clarify her remarks, with many calling on her to apologize for the offense caused. However, as of yet, Goldberg has remained steadfast in her position, offering no indication of contrition or acknowledgment of the harm caused by her words.

Goldberg’s comments are part of a greater problem in American media and politics: One where conservative Americans are routinely demonized for their beliefs without consequence. This rhetoric should alarm all patriotic Americans interested in the free and honest discussion of ideas and politics.
