I was running a batch of mixed headstamp brass today and had a primer that wouldn't seat. There was some military brass in this mix, so I figured I just missed one, but I pulled it out and it was FC NT and no circle with cross symbol. Sure enough, the primer pocket was crimped.

I understand the reason for it, but hadn't encountered it before. Something more to watch for. :cuss:

I've heard that Federal .45ACP NT has the crimped (small) primer. Still haven't actually loaded any so wouldn't know for sure.
