THIS SAME GUY SET OF A PRIMER A FEW MONTH EARLIER. SHOULD HAVE GIVEN HIM A CLUE ON SAFETY. " Blew up a primer yesterday -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I crushed a large pistol primer on a .45 with a small primer pocket yesterday. It got stuck in the slide on my progressive press. I tried picking it out with a couple things and resorted to my knife. I slipped off the edge of it and the knife point hit the inside of the primer and BANG. That woke me up. I had safety glasses on but I learned to have a little more respect for primers. I've loaded a ton of rounds and never had a single primer go off even when crushed, but that made me realive just how sensitive they can be. Thought I would post this little bit of stupid so it might help someone else from loosing an eye. "
