Their peers oft times think if the primer pocket opens up enough in 2 reloads such that it won't hold a new primer, the load's still a safe one to shoot.

Their dumber peers don't think pressure's too high even if the primer falls out of the case upon its ejection but they can find the primer. Maybe if they can't find the primer, then the load may be a bit too hot.
