Re: Oops:Forgot the powder.
Seemed to work for you. I've used a brass rod and mallet (a rod larger in dia. than a cleaning rod). Since the primer has already fired, it won't ignite any powder that may be left in the case. I'd make sure everything is aligned and carefully tap the bullet back, watching the progress carefully. My first was in 1969 in a .38 Special 3" Rossi. No harm, no foul, just really embarrassing at the range...
BTW; I've got a Mini Maglight on my bench and shine it in every case to make sure there's powder in it!
