Default You know what i really HATE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who was the effin d bag that decided they would save .50 cent per billion rounds to use small pistol primers in 45 acp..

Nothing will kill a good run on the progressive press than a small primer case slipping through. Seems every time I get back in a good rhythm I get another. I have looked through most of the cases before they hit the case feeder but I guess my eyes suck bad enough I can always tell em apart

Ok I'm done ,, just had to vent !!

Back in the day a case the size of a .45 needed a large primer, nowadays its not necessary, if they want to save a few dollars to keep the price down, I'm all for it.

I know exactly what you mean! It is bad enough to stop in the middle of a run...without having to be remided that I am growing old!

But then again I dont have a progressive, just a single stage....

Somebody's a little OCD about their brass.

I don't have a 45 ACP (yet), but I would probably get a little pissed off too about finding one that uses small primes in a batch of ones that use large primers. Mostly because I'm lazy and wouldn't want to go through the trouble of checking every case for primer size. I also wouldn't want to have to have two different boxes of primers open when I reload, that just confuses things.

I'm just saying it sounds like you picking up other peoples brass for free. Now there's nothing wrong with that I give mine away every time I shoot, but wow to complain about it.

Default Small Primers in .45 ACP

KTMBOYZ, the small primers in .45 ACP has nothing to do with saving money. All .45 ACP that are "Non-Toxic" will have small primers. I work for a company that recycles once "fired brass". I has been proven that the most toxic part of a cartridge being fired is residue from the primer. In order to make a cartridge truly "Non-Toxic", a new explosive had to be developed for that round. This new explosive proved to be too "hot" for the large pistol primers. Hence, the small primers in the .45 ACP. Since we buy "once fired" brass by the ton, it creates a lot of extra work for us, as it all has to be hand sorted
