    We I'm sure most already know but for those who don't. Some manufacturers of .45 acp brass use small pistol primers.
    Man I've been here once before. Back when they first started doing this crap. Reloading a batch and bang primer goes off in press. Figured out large primers don't like small pockets. Well for years I've been carrying 9mm. So most of my shooting and reloading has been 9. Well decided to stock some .45 and started to reload and about 7 rounds in BANG. I knew some manufacturers did this but these were all federal cases. Well...

    These were introduced to improve the ignition reliability of early lead-free priming compositions. You will also find larger flash holes in the cases.

    I have seen these cases at the range and have been very selective about picking up brass. All the best...

    Slow down and don’t force the primer into the cartridge. I can feel the difference when setting the primer on my Dillon 550.

    With practice and patience you will too.
