I would actually think so. I think in a SHTF scenario when people start to run out of ammo and begin to get worried that they will start to use other methods. My main thought would be that they start to use general muzzle loaders as the recipe for black powder is not exactly secret. Roofing nails are generally lead and cal be great for making rounds. Even steel or another metal would work, you just need a mould. If people don't use these my next guess would be pipebombs, crossbows and bows. Personally I have bows and muzzle loaders in addition to my rifles so I feel pretty darn prepared.
