With ammo prices rising and the recent attempt to shutdown the last lead smelter in the USA by the EPA, you might want to think about making your own bullets. In this excellent three part video series by Tacticalreview he shows you the process of taking lead tire weights, that you can usually get for free, and turns them into lead ingots for use in casting and making your own bullets. So check out the video series below and hit up a few tire shops and start stockpiling some lead to making your own bullets.

Very easy to do…..have done this for years for cap and ball and recently for “ball tip style” rifle rounds……….just remember its just lead and not HARDENED….like steel or jacketed copper rounds.. You will experience Lead fouling and need to consider that. But during a SHTF event,….who cares.
looks fun. Never reloaded before.
