Every reloader should have a universal decapper. They come in handy. Get one and use it to gently push the primer out. No danger in doing this.

Re: Bad Brass and primer combo

I have never had an issue decapping live primers. I just do it slowly, and wear safety glasses. Make sure the primer was not mistakingly seated upside down. When in doubt be take extra precautions. Had a buddy take an anvil in the center of his eye many years ago and lost it. It only takes one mistake!
