In sorting though brass I pick up at the range I occasionally find empty brass with unfired primers. I just sorted a batch of 250 9mm cases and found six that had unfired primers. There was no mark where the primer had been hit with a firing pin. I've been tossing them out, but it occurs to me that I might miss one some day and wonder if there is any danger in depriming them?

I also find some unfired rounds that have a firing pin strike on the primer and I've been tossing them out also. Would it be safe to pull the bullet and save it?

I'm pretty much with everybody else on this... Why on earth would there be un-fired primed empty cases at a shooting range? Did the projectiles and powder fall out before they had a chance to shoot them???? :rolleyes: That doesn't make any sense at all...:confused:
That was going to be my next question - why would empty cases have unfired primers? They are not all the same primer either. Three are bass colored like the Winchester WSP and three are silver colored.

Let me go out on a limb....I don't really care anymore......

JUST BE HONEST.......you are more likely to get
honest help in return......

[P.S. My loads fall apart all the time...
all over the floor at the range....and they have
warned me, if it continues, they will bar me from
shooting there.]
Not sure if that is addressed to me or not, but if it is I have not had a single failed load of any kind. I've only fired just over 200 hand loads so far, but all of them have loaded, fired, and ejected without a problem.
