    I should also add that when decapping live primers that safety glasses should be used, and slow
    steady pressure used instead of snapping the primer out (It could ignite).

    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.

    Kroil works really well to kill primers.
