    Can someone settle a difference of oppinion between two old codgers, Is the main componants of modern day primers made of either copper or brass. Stupid question I know,but each old codger wont give in with his opinion. Thanks everyone.

    Yes.....interesting topic [over a game of Checkers].....
    and it really even matters why ....?????:rolleyes::rolleyes:
    Hard-headed old farts....and I AM one...so I can speak !
    More-so......the discussion should have been about......:
    "In a perverse quirk of fate, the priming system used in England and throughout much of the rest of the world was developed by an American, Col. Hiram Berdan. The predominant priming system used here in the U.S. was invented by an English ordnance officer, Col. Edward Boxer. The two systems are not at all interchangeable, and must not be confused."
    Or something a bit more technical than......"that car is candy apple red.....no it ain't Joe, you old s**t, it's metallic Ruby red...you dum**ss".
