Got a load of 45ACP SP from my once-fired brass guy. He's always supplied good stuff in the past. No exception here. Processed a boatload of Speer Friday and yesterday. I normally punch out the primers with a Lee universal decapper, then tumble them. The media does a good job of cleaning out the pockets, but I still run give them a quick touch with a pocket cleaner. The picture below shows why. Out of several hundred cases, there was one case with a large primer (same headstamp), there was also another where the top of the primer came off but the sleeve was still in the pocket. Either of these would have made a mess while reloading (the LP would have dribbled powder, while the non empty pocket might have caused a primer detonation). Not a big deal to do while sorting brass. In this case, it turn out to be all Speer, with a few variations on the theme. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
