Default Can't find Primers? Try this.

I don't know if I would ever actually do this but it sure looks cool.....even made his own gun out of newspaper. This guy is the ultimate do-it-yourselfer...

It looked like he didn't really use a primer he used a cap from a kids capgun.

Reuse primers, rather than making the cups:

Ok. That's cool and all. But holy crap what a waste of time. Yes I know it's cool to know how to do, but who reuses primers? Yes I can already see all the post about what happens when the SHTF. But seriously! Anyone who is anal enough to make his or her own primers I am sure is anal enough to have a hoarder size ammo stockpile. Besides if it gets to that point I have arrows! Lol and rocks with my old trusty slingshot!

The first guy I understood, he needed to make low pressure primers for a paper gun (that is amazing by itself), but this guy is just trying to save two cents. That's crazy to me.

But very cool! Who knows if primers get to be as overpriced as 22LR (people charging 5X more) then I may be changing my tune.

Next thing you know we will have a run on match sticks.

I have third-handed information that this process was well documented in one of the US Arm Force survival guide.

It is a wast of time, but if you are trap behind enemy line, this may be the only option.

Where was the part where he fires a real bullet thru a real rifle? WTF, cap gun primers, that doesn't mean it will detonate a real charge...
