Well he keeps most at his machine shop, 20-30K at the house. IMO, you don;t have at least 1 years worth as a reserve, you are short. Since Clinton, I have always kept that as a min reserve, every primer size I need for one year. Then when I hit that min, I order another 5K, whether I need them or not. I never run out, never.

The larger permanent cavity may lead to faster blood loss. Although such an edge clearly exists, its significance cannot be quantified".
