    When reloading the old primers go into a small bucket....what do you guys do with them? Can you throw them in with the scrap brass for recycling our just toss?

    They are brass, the same as shell casings. I keep them separate, so the recycler can see what they are and they can run a magnet through them. They then pour them in with the rest of the brass for weighing. It will depend on what your recycler wants. You'll get some that won't take them because they're afraid there might be some live primers in there. The one I use doesn't care.

    Hope this helps.
