I think there will be a time VERY soon where you will have to pay a high premium for ammo or the regulations and taxes will make it unavailable to purchase retail. In order to prepare founknownwn I wanted to learn how to reload ammo so if I had access to empty brass I could reload like they did in the old days like the Lone Ranger. After reading several articles and a couple of on-line books about reloading I realized that I was as qualified to reload ammo as I was to relprescriptionsions. After much research on this forum I found JohnH! A buddy and I contacted him on the forum and got in line for one of his reloading classes. The Saturday finally arrived and we drove to John's house in Milwaukie for the class. I have been in many armorer classes and all sorts of LE traintactics tacitcs. This class was by far the best, most informative class I have had in firearms. JohnH knows reloading and is a fun and entertaining instructor. We learned how to load ammo one round at a time on the single stage equipment and then we were given a demonstrationonstration on the Dillion machines where you can crank out over 1,000 rounds per hour. Great class and now I am ready and able to reload ammo if the supply ever becomes hard to get. Food is first, but a stable long term supply of ammo is very important. The rain will always bring us clean water, but, with the stroke of a pen ammo could become very expensive or impossible to buy. Learn how to reload! I will be happy to answer any questions about the class or the armorer classes I have taken. Just PM me.
