Whacked the concrete floor, the primer ignited on the second whack. flew around the shop bouncing off of more things than one would thing. The 99 grains of US-896 didn't ignite.

Whackin' hammer impact immediately went into the trash barrel.

Also I think I'll retire my brass a few shots earlier.

I have heard of primers going of when decapping and also when seating them but never
while using a bullet puller !!!!

Primers pack a punch (More than most people think) and can be extremely dangerous. I quit
using the hand priming tool after seeing the results of it blowing up with several hundred
primers in the round magazine after the one being seated set them off. (It almost took the guys
hand off).

Sounds like murphy visited you. Glad you were not injured . Did you soil your self, Ha Ha.

Just goes to show you that anything can happen, even to an experanced Re loader.

PS; I think I just retired my seldom used inertia puller "Permanent".
