Well, I guess if you can't find primers locally, I could see it being a valuable technique, But at almost 5 min/ per, I think it would be money and time better spend with some factory primers.
Just an observation

Might be easier to just break out the flintlock & go old school.

neat trick if the libs make primers super pricey or extinct.

Default Best option...

Make sure you have more ammo than you can survive.
That way you'll have ammo to spare and not have to ask that they wait while you try to make primers...

Buy you several thousand, store them well. Don't try and reinvent the wheel.
