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.
