    Like a lot of things, if you've not dropped primers or bullets on the floor you've not reloaded.

    I've partially dumped my Lee auto prime tray before. About 30 spilled out onto the bench, and about half of those made it to the floor. I wasn't too thrilled, but I eventually found them all. It happens.

    I call that the jelly affect. Drop a piece of toast with jelly, it will always land jelly side down.:crying:

    HOWJA know that happens to me, too???? I think Bill Nye, The Science Guy, Explained that once, years ago. I was so enlightened!
    But he experimented with jellied toast. I never did. I just happens sorta on it's own.

    You can carry 60 plates that had toast back from the living room and never drop one. If you have pasta or something with tomato sauce those plates fall icky side down the first and every time.

    If you buy an extra critical part the install will always go perfectly. Buy one critical part and you will break or grind it in half every time.

    ...and that "assembly required" project that ends up with a few leftover important looking doodads that seem like they belong somewhere.

    So far the last primer has been an elusive little SOB! I'm starting to think the spiders made off with it and are going to figure out a way to weaponize it!
