Thought some of you handloaders might be able to inform me a little. Before you ask, this is purely theoretical. I wouldn't dream of actually trying it. I've been reading a fiction book called "Guns of The South". The premise is that white supremacists go back in time and give AK's to the South. The head time-nazi thinks Lee is being too kind to black prisoners and threatens to cutoff the ammo supply. Lee then muses about reloading the spent brass with black powder and cast bullets. I was just wondering what would happen if one were to actually do this. I don't know enough about any of it to even hazard a guess.
