Seems like an awful lot of work Confused I'm not that worried about running out of primers. When I buy primers I buy a lot at one time (helps save money on the hazmat shipping fees) and store them in a dry place. I have primers that are over 20 years old that work fine and have yet to have a misfire from them.

He does have some neat videos though Smile

I'm sure with a little bit of research you can determine exactly what chemicals are used in matches and the strike strip and order them from a chemical supply shop in enough quantities to fill thousands of primers.

However, my time is way more precious than $0.03 cents a primer. But, this is good to know for the coming apocalypse provided you take the time to police up your spent brass.

That's what kids are for. They can police the brass, pop the old primers, flatten them and refill. Small fingers and good fine motor skills.

Fair enough... but mine are 3 and 1. Not ready for that responsibility yet.

Probably cheaper to outsource it. Kids are expensive.
