Re: Depriming Unfired Primers
I sure would be the last person on earth to to try to deprime a live primer wtih my machine. I think it is a stubid idea, dangerous, especially if you have other live primers feeding from a tube into your machine.
When I have a reason to pull the bullet and I want to reload the shell again, I just put the primed case in my gun and pull the trigger. Obviously you only do this once you have removed the bullet and powder. What you basically have is a starter pistol. Then just deprime the case like you would any other fired cases you are reloading.
You should always give the explosive components of reloading the greatest respect, IMHO.
