Re: Primer problems ?

yup small rod and large primers, shoot em up they'll still go bang just the same
Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.

Here is a pic. So, do you think they will fire? Safely?
Sure does look like a small primer rod.

Re: Primer problems ?

Wrong seating rod and possibly upside down as well.....

RCBS hand primers have 2 seating rods, a tiny one and a fat one but you need to change the carrier as well. The small primer rod fits the white carrier and the large primer rod fits the black carrier......

Radius end down on both...

Same tool I use, in my Lazy boy with my feet up, enjoying the fire in the woodstove.......

....primers need to be seated slightly below the surface of the case head, not flush.
