Survival trick uses household items to reload primer in spent shells

DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS AT HOME. Grant from the DIY YouTube channel “King of Random” shows how primer cups can be reloaded from resources found on a matchbox. By creating a mixture of red sulfur from the matchbox striker and the match head powder, Grant makes an impact sensitive explosive. He then carefully reloads his primer cups and tests his experimental mixture with some EMPTY shells. This trick should NEVER be used if store bought materials are available, but if the world is ending and you need more ammo it’s a good skill to have.
