    It absolutely makes sense. In a SHTF situation such as a Zombie apocalypse, ammo becomes just as scarce and valuable as everythig else. Having the ability to reload doubles your chance of having the ammo available when the enely attacks. Not only can you scrounge live ammo but you can also make use of scrounged components.

    For me to watch or read something like this with interest it must be accurately depicted and absolutely do-able. No scopes mounted backward on prop weapons (like in the movie "The Mechanic", awesome movie, but that damn backwards CQ/T scope on the FN F2000 fired my Bishop).. Just pisses me off.. As a gun guy.. My advice to the directors.. Get it right or get a different job. It isnt hard to find an enthusiast like myself to ensure your props are accurately depicted.

    The movie series "Band of Brothers".. flippin Genious. Every weapon depicted and used in that series is spot freakin on!

    None of that swapping scopes crap on the 03A4 springfield like Barry Pepper's sniper character in "Saving Private Ryan", or the 7 round M1911A1 firing 23 rounds before the shooter decides to reload.. I hate that crap.

    I think shot shells might be the best to use there was a thread started on here a couple of days ago about reloading shotgun shells without a press it also wouldnt have to have a precise projectile if you can drip hot metal in liquid you got shot

    ditto that... pulled components could be very usefull even if you don't hav ethe exact chamberings for the ammo you scrounge. just pull the powder and proj's if you can use them..

    Also, there are asteriods full of gold. A good resource for casting in a pinch, or great for trading.
