    So I am looking at primers that a supplier has and I'm trying to figure out if its reasonable pricing with haz mat fees on what they have. What do you guys reload with, quantity, pricing, and brand and for what type of gun. Example CCI small pistol #500 $26 for 1K plus haz mat TULA small...
  2. Ammunition and Reloading
    I finally got bullets to reload my 30/30 brass but never considered that I would not have the right primers since I have so many different ones. Anyway, the load data calls for large rifle primers and the only ones I can get are large rifle magnum primers. Can they be used and if so should I...
  3. Ammunition and Reloading
    So recently I bought a 1000ct box of small rifle primers to reload .223. Today I finally got some time to press some primers and after I got about 30 seated I realized I had a problem. The main box is marked "Small Rifle Primer 1000ct"; the small packs inside are marked "Small Pistol Primer...

    Ok. Everyone has their opinions on 45 small primer brass vs 45 large primer brass. I've read the gambit of advantages and disadvantages. One is more accurate, less recoil, burns cleaner and so on. I really don't care about the arguments. My reason for converting the brass from one to the other...

    From time to time I've seen threads on various forums complaining about the primer slide return spring on Dillon 550's. The factory spring works when everything is perfect, but doesn't return quickly enough on the upstroke when things are a little dirty, worn, or less than perfect. Replacing the...

    I saw some threads where people are complaining about 42 - 43/00/1000 primers. I got 7000 various primers from a distributor last week paid from 29.90 to 32.10/1000 and 41.00 shipping and haz mat. I have to add 5.85/1000 to break even.

    Getting ready to load .45 ACP and I'm not sure how to tell if the particular shell I'm loading takes a large or small primer. Should I be able to tell just from looking at it? Thanks!

  19. Ammunition and Reloading
    I picked up some nickle plated 223 brass at teh range, didn't really pay much attention to it until today when I noticed it has a large primer in it. I'm guessing its a home job, kinda odd. Anybody else every see this, con'at find anything on the web about it being factory.
