The problem with guns is that each bullet can only be used once and then its gone forever. I am going to get guns and ammunition as a quick defense on my way to the bug out location.

Actually I’ve remolded a number of bullets over and over, if they can be located, the bullet (cast lead) can be re molded over and over.

I have also reloaded cartridges in the field, while in camp at night. With a minimum of gear, some pre-set measures, dies and such, one can restuff the cases fired that day, over and over.

One summer, I reloaded my fired cases every night, not replacing the cases or digging into my stockpile and some .45 cases were loaded more than 20 times and were/are still functional. Although finding them sometimes can be a chore.
