    i was cranking out some .45's ,and i noticed one had a crease going across the primer ,so i started to inspect all of them ,and i found about ten of them with this little crease ,so i pulled the primer tube ,primers where fine ,i inspected the way they seated ,and darn it ,it happened again ,i stopped thought about it and was dumbfounded ,then i removed a primer from the primer seater ,and a tiny little hair from my beard was sitting there,it was about 1/16 of an inch long enough to mark the primers

    i guess i will know who's brass it is at the range

    LOL, I'm gonna have to try that one Postal...Now where am I gonna get a hair from? Guess I have to steal one from my wife.


    I've brainstormed myself silly tring to figure out a way to quickly identify my "good" brass at the range, I've used brightly colored model paint on the head which splatters against my bolt...I guess I'll have to try painting the rim instead.

    Fingernail polish on the primer. Seals it too!

    Postal, ROFLMAO!! Time to shave, my friend. Need to put that into the next reloading safety presentation.

    Okay, all you reloaders with beards, either use a scarf to cover it while you are repriming, or shave! LOL

    Plano, I've heard of using fingernail polish as a sealer, but for some reason always only thought of clear polish. Duh :rolleyes:
    Does the colored nail polish stay put on the brass, or will it splatter a little bit like the model paint?


    Oh, and congrats on 4k posts Postal

    I use a Sharpie magic marker on the head of my brass for I.D. purposes.
    I originally started using a black Sharpie to place an "X" on the head to identify brass that was on it's last mission, so I'd deposit those at the range after shooting them for the last time, and not take them home to reload again.
    Then I realised that marking the heads of my .40 S&W brass would help me locate my brass a lot easier on the ground, so I mark those with red....give it a try, it works for me.....
