Sorting Primers By Type

1 year ago

It's important to sort primers while they are still in the brass casing. Once the primer cups are separate from the brass - you lose a lot of valuable information. Sorting your primers by type (small pistol, small rifle, etc) is trivial while it's still in the case. Avoid (shy away from) reloading 9mm and 357 primers when you are first learning reloading primers. The cups that are subjected to higher pressures will show more signs of deformation. Lower pressure ammo/primers will tend to be more "pristine". Therefore I recommend you use these (380, 38 Spl) primers during the learning stage. Certainly - 9mm/357 primers can be reloaded once have mastered the fundamentals.
