Thanks to all of you who replied to my reloading inquiry re lead for bullets (bushrat, 1974, freedom).
Lots of interesting info and ideas. I looked into the Corbin copper swaging equipment; pretty expensive endeavor. Have you guys actually invested in these tools to make your own bullets or do you buy them? One would have to be doing a lot of shooting, or selling ammo supplies to justify the investment.
One thing that was not clear is how do you go from say, scrap copper wire, to swagged bullets in a SHTF situation? Corbin spoke of starting the swaging process with their copper sheet or tube stock. What works when the Corbins of the world are not available?
