FWIW, I have used lp primers in different rifle calibers, just start low and
work up just the way you should do anyway, have even reamed primer
pockets in some pistol brass to use lr, start low and work up.

Have done the same thing only a lot more with sp and sr, don't need
to ream the primer pocket deeper with the small primers.

Did an experiment with the 454 Casull, very high pressure loads, with sp
and sr primers, you would not believe the results, sometimes the small
pistol primers would be higher FPS, same in the 9mm.

The key is use a medium burn rate powder, that helps.

I use sp regularly in the lighter 454 loads, most pistols don't need a large
primer either.

We may all have to get real creative some day, one reason I like guns that
shoot many different cases, and don't forget the boolit molds, they are only
twenty dollars each.

Last week I shot three different cast boolits in the 223 with good results and
three different cast boolits in the 30-06, most rifles are great cast boolit guns.

For those that like subsonic loads all you need is a good fit cast boolit, even
in the 30-06, about five to ten cents a shot.

The only available ammo i saw during the last idiot frenzy, was shotgun shells. When Wally world was dry of everything else, there were still shotgun shells. Shtf .... Hope u have a gauge gun. Juz saying.
You do realize the idiots are the ones that failed to prepare.

Don't forget molds to cast that shot in the still available shotgun shells into
buckshot and slugs, if one waits long enough you will not be able to get
molds either.

This is not perfect but it does work in a 20 ga, I wrap enough TP under and
around it to center it in the wad, it also works in a 12 ga tri ball load.


Here is some for 12 slugs and buckshot loads, remember also for a cheap but still
effective load in many revolvers a round ball that is a little over sized will turn your
44 or any caliber into a modern cap and ball gun, only better.

I have these molds but have never used them yet but have cast round balls in
standard molds for the 454 and on down.




If you want to have some good cheap fun with the 12ga get a .662 to a .678''
round ball mold, the .690 lee mold can work but it is too big for the wads.
