    so i deprimed, cleaned all my empty brass. my wife says she misses me and says i need to not hide in the basement so much. i was thinking id take all my empties upstairs so i could prime and chat/spend time with her.. but i doubt that the empties will all be loaded right away.. sitting on 2000 plus empties... possible they may stay shelf bound and primed for up to a month or longer. cases are .40, .223, .308. with a single stage press this many cases takes awhile.
    my question is

    would it adversely affect the primer to sit in an empty casing for that time period verses being in the packaging?

    i think as long as they were kept dry, that it wouldn't be any different than them being in the package. most primer packages are just a plastic tray and a cardboard or paper sleeve anyways. i too sometimes prime mine and then set for a while until i get the time to load them, and haven't yet noticed a problem.

    No i do it all the time and have never had a problem. Sometimes I'll have a thousand extra 45 apc that are primed because I have ran out of bullets. I only buy reloading supplies once a year to save on hazmat and shipping fees. You might want to keep your extra primed cases inside your house if it's going to be a long time till you finish reloading them

    How long have you been married? Just pick a fight with her when you come out of the basement then she'll be glad to have you go back. Priorities man. :D

    Take her to the range, teach her how to shoot, and she will load them for you.

    I dont see where it would make a difference...


    Yeah! THAT dont work!! I am here to tell you that as FACT!!

    The only thing getting the wife addicted to shooting does is insures you will be spending more time at the reloading bench and less time on the firing line. No more escaping for some needed "me time" for "powder therapy".

    Mine is now always saying, "Dont you have some ammo to make for me?!?":eek:

    There are few things more satisfying than watching your wife pick up your SIG P226, loaded with 15 rounds of +P+ LE duty ammo and empty the magazine into a coffee cup size group at 10 yards in about 3-4 seconds.

    You know then that when you take off for a 10 day hunting trip, you don't have to worry about her safety.:)
