Re: \'Flattened\' primer pictures?
[ QUOTE ]
Catshooter, .025" of excess headspace is going to give far greater problems than flat primers. I strongly urge anyone that has a rifle, with more than .004" of headspace, to avoid shooting it.

0.004" means that statistically, 80% to 90% of rifles out here are un-shootable.
That's an unachievable standard for mass produced rifles and ammunition.
Do you think all of your rifles meet that same 0.004" standard with new brass??
Put three pieces of scotch tape across a new case head (0.006"), and chamber a round - if the bolt closes without force, and doesn't tear the tape, then throw the rifle away, or take it to a gunsmith, cuz by your definition, it is dangerous and has too much head space to shoot!
If you do take it to a reputable gunsmith, be prepaired to be laughed at.
