Pro Being able to craft ammunition is a realistic gameplay element
Being able to craft ammunition makes Fallout a lot more realistic as crafting ammunition would be a huge part of a real-life post-apocalyptic environment. Spending the time and effort crafting ammo also helps the game feel like it's a precious resource.
Con Makes ammo too prevalent
Ammo would be super rare in Fallout and adding in a new way to acquire some the development team didn't consider could ruin the balance of the game.
Con Makes playing on Survival a lot more realistic
The original damage dealt for survival is 0.5x with 2.0x as the damage taken. Increasing the amount of damage you take for getting hit makes the game a lot more realistic, but you should also be able to damage enemies at the same rate.
