Thank you….this is the first time I have witnessed the firing of a case with just a primer and I was quite surprised with the power. A good reminder to treat primers with respect.

I’ve had some primers get turned and crushed when priming cases and I’ve slowly pressed them out with a universal deprimer. What I did after that (Involving a hammer and vise anvil AND PPE) was juvenile and irresponsible, it made the cats in the next room scatter. 😀
Those on the other hand were very well crimped, I don’t think I would have attempted to deprime them. I would have shot them like you did or water soaked them before depriming.

Oh smack, cap gun! I have about 800 or 900 Remington 5 1/2 primers for my 357 that are good for no other reason. Second box of 1000 that are having failure rate of 2% so yuck!
