Well it finally happened to me. After about 18k rounds, the primer punch won't seat the primer deep enough. I remember all the hassles Stevie went through on his new AP, and the mods that he tried. I was concerned for a moment, then had a thought. Can't I just JB weld a spent primer to the bottom of the punch? It workie! Should of done that from the start, then I wouldn't of needed anything to prevent the bottom of the punch from gouging into the press frame. The punch now rises plenty high. Yes, that's a small primer for the 45gap. I'm one of those small primer big bore users y'all love to hate.
