I should also add that when decapping live primers that safety glasses should be used, and slow

Also if it worries you just drop the primed brass in a bucket of water and let stand over night. this should (Defuse) the primer making it safe to de cap.

I have de primed 50bmg and 20mm rounds and the primers are very powerful and you must
kill them with water or they may kill you.

I assume that you have partial boxes of various primers in your loading area at any given time. Do you keep each box in a different location?

No,I have a special storage for each component. (Bullets, cases, powder and primers that is best/
safest for them,And when I start reloading I remove the proper primers, powder and bullets to
my loading bench and never have two different primers, bullets or powder on the bench at once.

I try not to touch primers if I can, and recomend leaving them in there original packaging
until used. I once new a pistol shooter that dumped all of his pistol primers into a quart jar
(I hope they were all the same brand and number) I warned him of the danger and he said
they were ok.

Primers are very explosive and 2 or 3000 can definitely make a bomb.

We are all human and can make a mistake and pick up the wrong bullet or primer.

I once caught such a mistake and had to remove several heaver bullets after they had been
loaded. (They would have been over loads).so now I remove the chance.

Re: Bone head move

Kroil works really well to kill primers.
