Re: Federal 215m primers

I've done plenty of by hand handling of primers on older equipment I used before I got my own. Wash your hands first and you won't have trouble. I've gotten no misfires from oil in thousands of rounds loaded on that equipment. I still go by hand for test loads when I don't feel like breaking out the primer flipper and tubes. Heck, sometimes I break out the old lee seater, which is basically a recessed holder that you tap the primer in with a hammer using a rod ran through the case to transfer shock. Works fine if you watch what you're doing.

Re: Federal 215m primers

in the op's case, if a round has been struck in the primer, but didnt go off... does that now make the round more sensitive go going off by accident?

Re: Federal 215m primers

I've loaded hundreds of thousands of rounds over the last 40 years from every company and have never had a single primer not go off.. your seating them to deep or they are touching some oil somewhere along the line.. and that oil includes your hands!!
