Re: Priming hand tool explosion
I have had this happen.............ONCE!
I was using an RCBS hand priming tool, and after the incident I discovered there were 2 primers in the seating area under the case, both were detonated, luckily for me none of the primers in the tray detonated and I escaped with ringing ears only!
It is quite possible that 2 primers were on the seating stem and the compression moved the anvil of one of them enough to set them off.
Primers are VERY sensitive to concussion, that's why the whole tray can detonate!
