This is what happens when you use LPP in a SPP brass .45acp

So I came across a small primer .45acp while priming. I have read where people say it may violently explode, ect... Even so I didnt see how the amount of explosives in any primer could do anything. SO.... I said ***** it and just did it, maybe it can bring some clarity to someone who is worried of mixing it up.

It didn't go off on you this time. I would try and avoid that. It is a small explosive charge, and when you're up and running on the press, it's often near a lot of other small explosive charges and a container of gunpowder.

Just set your small primer 45's aside and load them with small primers. Take them to a match or somewhere you aren't going to get your brass back.

Crush the case with a pair of pliers and put it in the trash. It will wind up in a landfill where it can rot in peace.

BTW: This is all in jest, sort of... We have this conversation every month or so and I am the guy who wants to scrap every SPP .45 case on the planet lest they wind up back in my case feeder.

Reloading
Two examples of when a right size primer that does not want to go into a case that was being forced. And that is not all of the damage done to the press and ceiling. No big deal right. I know a person that still has a large pistol primer imbedded in his hand for the last 20 years that they can’t take out without destroying nerves in his hand. No big deal right.

Why take a chance?... presort during checking that should be done after cleaning.
You might not be so lucky next time.

While the chance of an explosion is rare, you beating on the press, trying to make it go off is just kinda, well, Obama like? Seriously, reloading is not where you want to be experimenting.
I get sp brass in my case feeder all the time, even with inspection. If you have to push that hard, STOP, something is very wrong. Pluck it out, bag it or toss it & proceed. Old Darwin is always around the corner waiting for folks that take foolish risks.

You have to be smarter than the brass case you are loading. If it takes more than the usual force on the press handle you have something that is not right.

You need a safer hobby. Maybe playing with Teddy Bears would be better for you.

There's always macrame. It's like knitting, but without all those sharp things.

Seriously, Sparksman. Careful with them 'splodey things.

You were the guy who always used a hammer to force the square peg into the round hole . Right. Lets get this straight- small primers for small primer pockets, Large primers for large primer pockets. If you can't figure that out maybe reloading isn't for you.

I'm surprised it didn't go off.

I was expecting a scolding by the senior crowd here. It was a controlled experiment with safety equipment, and I only hit it because I didnt want to hold it encase it did go. I thought it out before I just attempted.

The worst thing to happen would have just sent the handle flying back. The shell is secured and the only direction the force of the explosion could have gone is down.


I know this came up a lot and wanted to settle it. I know this is frowned upon and the only reason I did this is for educational purposes. I took safety precautions, and it may be different for you.

Hate on me all you want, call me dumb, or names. I have no intention of doing again, or encouraging others to do it.

There were maybe 10 other primers and NO powder anywhere near it.

One primer with a contained force going in one direction could be very dangerous.
