I have seen a few videos on using glue sticks to make the bullets instead of buying or making lead or using fmj bullets. Just using the primers to propel the glue bullets. It seems could save a lot of money not using gun powders.It seems like a good idea when just punching paper targets. Would maybe the accuracy be greatly challenged?
I am guessing just using primers then there would not be enough energy to rack the slide. Also would the glue bullets really gum up the barrel?
Just wondering if glue bullets is a good idea for saving money when just target shooting?
I don't shoot all that much and I just don't know if buying all the loading equipment is worth the expense. It seems like it would take a long time for reloading to pay for itself.
I have also heard the reloading supplies have gotten difficult to find same as ammo.
Whats the verdict?
I don't know if I would go the glue route--for practice you can dry fire the center fires ones and the rimfire sr22's handbook says it is ok to dry fire it without any damage, although through the years i have dry fires my .22 rimfires alot without any damage. It does take a long time to recoup your money by reloading but it is worth it. Maybe buy a piece at a time and before you know it you will be making cheap ammo, it is like a hobby by itself, I really enjoy it been doing it for about 35 years now.
