Alrighty,

I have a new stupid question

i know i know.There is no such thing as a stupid question just stupid people asking the question....

 

I have some loaded bullets i'm going to pull.The brass is turning colors from not tumbling after sizing. is there anyway i can deprim these after i pull them? I would like to start over completely with them but the primers are my main concern.

 

any tip's?

 

Big

The joke was great thanks!!!!   after pullling the bullets and dumping the powder deprime as if the had been fired or if you want just shoot them as a normal event then deprime. and you are wearing safety glasses right!!!!

Dude if you are worried about the color, then just get new camos to match.  This will make PERFECT sence to the SO.  Ugly shell need lov'in too, just blast and go.

   So i shouldn't have any problems if i just deprime these as normal.

 

    The primers should be able to be reused right?

 

    For some reason the cases have to much lube on the out side of them and it is changing the color pretty bad.also the loads are to hot for what i need them for i would like to change them also.

no do not use them, the decapping pin will push the anvil out of the correct relationship with the cap or back of the primer and in some cases will actually dent it. in any case it will cause inconsitent ignition.

  Okay, I'll not use them.I just need to find away to clean them really good with the primers still in and not messing them up any.

 

  I always seem to find the tuff things to figuer out.

I use a shell holder which has a little extension attached at rear, enough to get it into a drill bit. Brasso on a cloth and hold around shell, press trigger and bzzzzz, one very clean shiny shell. Just be carefull that the drill has variable speed and use a slow speed. Do not get the cloth wrapped around the shell holder, otherwise bzzz and you have a sprained wrist!!!

  I have a lee shell trimer thingy that gose thru the shell and holds the ejector ring for trimming i can use for this.

 

   I just would feel a little safer getting them clean like they should have been.
