I try not to mess with another man's obsessions.
Seems like one of those topics people just seem to want to discuss to death. Altho, the other thread is really more about cleaning media than primer pockets but, I get the connection.
I've scraped the crud out of magnum rifle pockets before, to make sure primers seat all the way. I don't remember how often, juts done as needed. Some of that brass makes it a long time with annealing, and eventually it builds up crud in the pocket that makes primers not set right.
With those darn .45 acp small primer cases, I clean pockets manually to make sure the small primers are segregated.
I have one. I do a run with it on all my once fired brass. Then it sits in the drawer till more new brass shows up.
It does a good job on crimps.
Yuck, sure wouldn't want to give that guy a lift home from work in my car.
I've said it before and I'll say it again.
Tumbling your brass and not cleaning the primer pocket is akin to washing your pants but not your underwear, just sayin.
I got a visual, that won’t go away.
Me too , and that was years ago . We called him the mud turtle . This guy was amazingly dirty, he was actually asked to leave one of the hotels we stayed at . He sprayed herbicides treating stumps and spraying foliage behind us cutters , he wore the same clothes everyday for the 5 days we were out . That is a smell you would never forget, body odor and all those nasty chemicals gave off an aroma like no other . Sorry to get off track . Funny this thread reminded me of ole Gatesy ,RIP.
what procedures other folks do. I leave
them be, and I expect the same from them.
There are some in my area that think I'm
nuts for still using a beam scale and
manually inspecting each case
Excuse my ignorance but what is this other method you allude to?
Knew a fellow like that back when I worked for Our Crazy Uncle. We called him the Dirt Gobbler.
