    Is there anything you can do with this stuff besides scrapping? It has a small pistol primer pocket that takes some sort of "non-toxic" primers.. I am not sure whether to scrap it, or polish it up and sell it on GB..

    You can send it to me and I'll properly dispose it for you.

    :cool: That's just the kind of guy I am.



    Happy New Year Ya'll!

    Hmm. Seems like you might have some sort of load for it. You may have to find me on GunBroker lol.

    hehe :evil:

    Yeah, just load em up as normal....only use small pistol primers.

    I've just recently started loading 45 acp and I started with the small primer brass because I use so many more of them than the large ones. It's just one of those YMMV things.

    It's got primer pocket crimp like military cases. Just remove the crimp and you can use regular SP primer, non-toxic or the "toxic" kind. :D

    Or, you could send them to me, and I'll properly dispose of it.

    I'll even do it more properly then Seedtick will, because I'll say my secret reloaders chant over them I always chant while swaging primer pockets. :cuss:

    And do a little dance of sorts, best I can anymore. :banghead:

    This comes up about twice a month or so. Just reload, shoot, and repeat as necessary. The only difference is the size of the primer. I've got European .45 acp brass dated 1957, so it's nothing new.

    Hope this helps.
