    I know some have seen the video on youtube where a guy remakes a boxer primer to work once again for reloading.

    Would this work with berdan primers as well. I can remove the primers using the hydraulic method with no problem. But we all know of the problem finding new berdan primers which makes it not worth the time to reload them.

    I am just thinking outside the box and wondering now. I am not looking for a flame war.

    I don't know anything about remaking berdan primers, but I've got to say you have tweaked my curiousity. Can you give me a link to the youtube video you mentioned, I couldn't find it.

    Damm! That's a lot of work! Looks like about ten minutes or so per primer.

    Let's see - 10 min p/primer X 100 primers = way too much bother. :D

    Wouldn't bother and don't like the looks of the hassle.

    But really glad I know, in the (hopefully) extremely unlikely event that things "hit the fan" - appears that a corrosive and unreliable option would be better than none whatsoever under the right circumstances.

    Now you know my thinking!

    I find no real need to do it on a steady bases. Just something to find out if it works and store the information in a have to case.

    My thoughts are have a second plan if needed when times are hard. There is plenty of brass Berdan casings thrown away all the time on the ranges.

    If needed for a back-up you have a plan.
