I don't think it is an age thing. I have more than a few gray hairs myself. I think it is a cultural thing. For a while there were some extremely horrendus acts done and the same word was yelled as the reason for this monstrous behavior. Many of us are thoroughly disgusted by these acts. And it is the lack of disgust, in the past, that allowed the acts to ever happen. Clearly, to keep from having such things happen again, we need to perpetually be disgusted. So when the word pops up, we put on our cringey worried faces and prepare to set things right.
I think getting upset about use of this word is rational and wholesome.
And people getting upset over the word "fuck" are just dumbfucks. It's funny to watch them squirm. Fuck, fuck, fuck ....

But, where would one scrounge tin? Let alone antimony?
I don’t know enough about making rounds to know if this is useful information but...
I get old tin sheets and other scrap metal from the junkies. Not the greatest name but I find it funny.
Again I don’t know what type of tin is necessary for ammunition, purity? We also collect metal from our burn pile.

Could one single, central mass cover such an area?

Flintlocks, here we come?
