Default Damaged Primer Disposal

I've damaged probably 20-30 primers during loading sessions over the past few months and was wondering what others do with theirs? They somehow flip and get sideways in the seating tool and have to be pressed back out of the casing.

They are live so I don't want to just throw them in the trash due to the amount.

Oh, and these are small and large pistol primers - no magnums or rifle.

Put them in oil. It will render them harmless. Spraying them with case lube will do the same. Used motor oil would be cheaper.

Default Soak them..

I have a small pill bottle 1/3 full of diesel fuel on my bench with a few of them soaking now.

A few days in diesel/oil will take the fire out of them...Bill

I just toss em out in the backyard. The elements will render em down to nothing and no one is going to hunt for em and they arent going to set a garbage truck on fire.

Oil and water work marginally at best in deactivating primers. After they dry out they could be just as active as before.

I just toss them in the trash can or put them with the spent primers and nonreloadable brass for recycling.

Thanks guys! I have a bottle of case lube and will put a drop in each then toss them after a couple of days.

WD-40 is a penetrating solvent and destroys them forever.
