Hi. Welcome to The Gun Rack. No doubt, your journey here has been a long one. But rejoice! For you have arrived at a place like no other. A place where goats and Chevettes dwell in harmony. A place where Glock fanboys and HiPoint hipsters coexist with mutual respect for one another. A place where even crocs are considered cool. Well, not really, but those that wear them are still accepted. Hell, even the owner of the site is a kilt wearing Californium. So register, log in, and become a part of the most eclectic gun forum on the interwebs. You'll be glad you did 😉

Wanna make your own AR bullets?

    In my case, probably one full cycle of reloading my current brass...since I now have 3,000 empties :eek:

    For me, its not savings as much as practicality--I have gobs of 22lr cases waiting for scrapyards...now, they can be processed and fired!

    For SHTF its a game changer too

    I love the idea of it. My problem is time. I can't seem to find the time to put together the rounds I don't have to make the components first.:) With all your overtime, I'm surprised you can justify it either. I could make a lot of rounds in the time it took me to make projectiles. I look forward to seeing how it treats you. I hope you win me over. I like making stuff. Especially awesome stuff from junk.
