    I recently fired reloaded blazer brass with small primer pocket in my 45acp. The small primers were unable to ignite all the powder in the cae causing either jams or no slide movement whatsoever. I used the same load in large primer cases and had no problem. Is their an answer to this problem besides burying small primer pocketed brass In my backyard?

    I reloaded them for a while and they really got to be a pain in the butt so I just started tossing them old brass bucket.

    I'm with Moody, I don't have time to mess with those few small primer .45's. Toss 'em.

    Small primer 45acp cases are "Devil Spawn" and should be classified in the same category as (Take your pick!!):
    Hazards to Navigation
    Environmental Disasters
    Drug Dealers
    Liberal Politicians
    Lawyers
    Child Molesters
    Bed Wetters
    Socialists
    Marxists

    In other words, they are a pain and should be discarded!
