I see on forums where some guys do this, but unless a guy really shoots a lot of it....I doubt it would amount to a great savings. Seems to me like a lot of work ( and some danger) for the small end result.

A friend of mine made it once years ago. He said it wasn't worth the hassle or the worry.

I'm making some for myself, made my own ball mill that will double as a brass tumbler, I got the cost of mading my powder down to about $5.00 a pound not including time.
