From Peter, China and Russia produce most of the world’s nitrocellulose, which is used to make gunpowder. Since the remaining countries are using it all to supply Ukraine and Israel, there won’t be much left for US civilian use.
As I have been telling you for a few years:
- Get out of the cities
- Make sure that you have a large stock of “war shots.” I’m not talking about range ammo and being able to spend recreation time at the range. I am talking about having ammo for self and home defense when the SHTF. Your guess is as good as mine, but I would suggest 1,000 rounds in each caliber for handguns, 250 for each shotgun caliber, and 5,000 for battle rifles.
- When the supply dries up, range time will have to be cut back.
- Don’t think that reloading will get you out of this. A gunpowder shortage will be felt everywhere.
