  1. OK, WOW!! Thanks guys. Here's where I am; I did rechamber and refire the crap out of them. About half did fire after 4 or 5 strikes. The rest I did knock down and put one case in a soft faced vise and hit it with a pointed set. It took quite a shot but it did fire. All deprimed with no incident. (why am I reminded of the VERY old Bill Cosby routine about how he put a bullet in the furnace in shop class!!!?) So, I did take closer up pics which are attached but at this point I am thinking that it is the hardness of the primers. As for the other 300 or so I already loaded they will go to the range with me and I will cycle them and see what happens. Nothing to lose at this point of the game. Will update as progress or lack thereof occurs. Thanks, again, guys.
  2. Hey guys, I bought and used CCI BR-4 SRPs. Still have over 300 loaded but untested/unfired reloads sitting here. Guess I will just have to try them. If NG will knock down for components. You think CCI would give any assistance?
  3. Last time I was in Pa. , five weeks ago, I bought 400 small rifle primers (at two different retail stores) as no SPPs were available at either .......WHAT A SHOCK!!!!! I have formerly used SRPs in place of SPPs in my 38 special loads with no problem whatsoever. Usually, CCIs over 4 grns. Bullseye for the Xtreme 125 plated RNFP, and 2.9 grn. Bullseye for the 148 grn. WCs. Both of these are nice loads that work well for me. So, imagine my surprise when about 40 of the 70 rounds I fired did not go bang!!! First failure was through an older Rossi with a 3" bbl, so I tried my S&W model 67 4" bbl, also an older handgun, with similar results. Next was the Ruger Match Champion about two years old (maybe 1000 rounds down the bbl) also sketchy, but better than the older guns. I have seen posts about the different composition of primers, SPPs vs. SRPs but have not heard of or seen this discussion/problem. Anyone else have an experience like this? Don't know if you can see it but all are good primer strikes! Cases are mixed headstamps, some new starline brass!!!
  4. PLEASE CLOSE THIS TOPIC, AMMO RELISTED WITHOUT THE HANDGUN.

  15. Thanks, 10, ... this is the kind of input I am looking for and is greatly appreciated.
  16. OK, Here we go! I have been into reloading (.. generally, .. successfully, ... still with 19 or so appendages/digits) for about 12 years now. Basically, 9, 38, 40S&W, and 45- 3 types. I do well and am pleased with my results; I stay within guidelines and don't get too creative. I have availed myself of the wealth of info available on the net and in published manuals. ( I give a particular shout out to Cast Boolits) In light of events recently I have modernized/upgraded my equipment and still try to keep it simple; I do like the Lee products for obvious reasons. I also track roughly the number of rounds that I load. ( currently, completed around 15 - 20 thousand rounds, over the course of those 12 years) [.. and still with 19 or so ...] In my modernization I have attempted to concentrate on quality, ... rather than quantity. I have singled out 38 special as it is my favorite caliber and what I shoot the most of. I can regularly build a round that 10 out of 20 will hit the scoring rings of a 25 yard target, at 25 yards, from a sand bag, with the balance still on the 8 1/2 x 11 target paper. If I could shoot free hand like this I would be a Merc!!!! NOW!! Here we go. I would like to pick the brains of the best out there and start a dialogue possibly about how different aspects of the reloading process effect performance of the round. I really WOULD like to limit the talk to the 38 special and we are talking bullseye type target shooting here at 25 yards. I'm not particularly asking for load data or what you shoot successfully; I am very curious as to whether anyone has any info on some of the more elusive and non published info; how does powder brand/ variation of charge ( 3.2 grns Bullseye vs. 2.9 grns on a 148 gr. wadcautter) (crimping in the groove, over the end) ( HP 38 vs. Universal) Does the powder brand/charge/crimp effect velocity that will engage the rifling and just HOW! HOW MUCH DIFFERENCE does a CCI primer make as compared to a Remington? Will you get a "fall off" .. wider spread .. "flyer" ...?? For example, I have recently learned that 38 special cases with a double cannulure were manufactured as wad cutter cases! (thinner wall, and interior stop?) When you load a wad cutter in a "heavy" (thicker) Winchester or Remington case, and run it through the factory crimp/sizer you can "feel" it being squished down. This has to effect engagement of the rifling in the barrel? Considering the different burn rates, ignoring what "everyone likes" how do you select a powder for a 125 grain rnfp bullet? Did anyone ever get this nutso crazy or is it just me? .................. Oh! .. and while you are at it, could you solve world hunger, ... and take care of the reloading primer situation! I personally shoot a S&W 586 6" bbl, Ruger Match Champion 4' BBl. , S&W Mod 67 4" bbl and a Rossi Mod 52 3" bbl. From these I draw my data. I have used new Starline brass, once fired and new Remington and Winchester brass, plusP nickel brass, and "wad cutter brass" from Winchester, Federal, and Remington. I regularly load X-treme 125 gr rnfp and coated 148 gr wad cutters over Bullseye, 231, HP38, Titegroup, and Universal in the specified load ranges. Have experimented with other bullet brands and weights but no real difference. In my modernization I am also using a Hornady powder trickler and digital scale. .... PANT, ...PANT, ... PANT!!!! Done, now! ..... am I expecting too much ....? Thanks, Guys
  17. Yeh, Yeah, ... I Know!! Everyone else too!!! Simple Deal, I will pay $100.00 cash money for 1000 small pistol primers. Will pick up from you and furnish FID and driver's license if you want. Any popular brand is OK. I am in Linden and will drive an hour to pick up.
  18. Thanks for the suggestions, guys; it's good to have some input from experienced guys. I am still undecided at this point but not in a particular hurry. Someone may come along and see the thread and want it. Actually had a NOVEL IDEA!!! ... anyone interested in trading for 1000 small pistol primers!!!! (or small rifle if they will work in 38 specials and 9mm; ... have not gotten around to trying that yet) If you bought primers "way back when" ... this could be a good deal for you! ... and work out for me too. Should I relist this in the WTT section? .... if I include my baby brudder in the trade will that sweeten the deal??? ( ...sorry, Jack, .. even though you were mom's favorite! )
  19. Took a ride out to Pa. last week; hit Sarco and bought some HP38 and Unique one pounders right around $30.00 each. Then drove up to Bowers Hardware in Slatesboro/Slatesville (?) about 40 minutes further. Had a SHI(P)LOAD of 9mm.! ... target, ... some no name, ... federal, defensive, and other stuff. I picked up 3 - 50 round boxes of NEW cheapo for 40 cents a round and shot it the next day. Brass case, reloadable, FMJ, 115 gr. What surprised me was full 1000 round cases of Federal 9mm at 40cents a round!!!! .....A FULL PALLET OF THEM!!! Even a bunch of uniformed LEOs in there buying up some "work" stuff! Definitely worth the ride. I was actually looking for T&T reloading in Stockerton; but they apparently closed their doors years ago and never took down the web site. Guess I should have known, ... they were advertising CCI SPPs for $32.00 a thousand!!! Take a look at their web site and eat your heart out on what prices WERE five years ago!!!!
  20. Well, that sounds like a much better deal!! ... Any more details? Where and when they have them?
