Re: Are You Prepared Component Wise for a 'Slow Joe Bin Biden' Win?

Last count I had 28,000 rifle/pistol primers. 40 plus pounds of powder. A truck bed box of lead and thousands of jacketEd bullets for lots of calibers. Wish I had another couple hundred 300 Savage cases and could use 40-50 pounds of tin.
