not hardly. to even think something can't or never will happen is living life foolishly. i am sure there are people who have been killed or injured that thought something couldn't or never would happen.

when dealing with items that are potentially dangerous, it pays to err on the side of caution. all it takes is one time, for the conditions to be right for events to change a person's entire life.

you can believe whatever you want and i'm not going to argue about it. but i will let others draw their own conclusions and make their own choices.

+1 we had primer jams multiple times a day, I had cleared those Jan's the exact same way probably a few thousand times. It only takes once for the conditions to be just right for a different outcome you're expecting. I never thought I would have set off primers but it only took 1 time to get me an ambulance ride straight to the hospital. It's not worth the risk

With a high volume production setup I can see how it can happen, but I can't say that I have ever heard of a powder hopper lighting off in a home reloader setup. Primers? Yup. Heard of that happening. but not powder. On the other hand one must take great care in working with black powder because it is far easier to light off.

When I ask questions, sometimes I have a good idea of the answer and am just looking for other opinions, not arguments. Thank you for your opinion.n

Watch the video I posted, it is more a fact then an opinion.

Perhaps I am being a bit anal and over thinking but sometimes that is just way I am. Lyman 49th edition, Page 60. Primers, Caution: "Primers can explode if subjected to friction, percussion, crushing, or excess heat from any source whether open flame or not. Static electricity and many other abuses may cause primers to explode". Some say the Journey is more self rewarding than the destination. I wish to thank all for their input, facts and opinions as it kept me digging.
