Flo's back.
She said use a 310 so ya can see 'dem pesky primers 'fore
ya go pokin' 'em in da wrong pockets. Come ta' think of
it, dat price tool Flo has kinda looks like a fancy 310
huh? Reckon dat's why she don't get no misfires on her
price quotes.

Oh, that lad's full of whimsy tonight and they didn't
even serve that at the mess hall!

Yeah, Progressive! Home of Flo!

A "left-handed joke" about progressive presses Craig.

I have no idea if Progressive is decent insurance, but it is no joke that Progressive Insurance is definitely a left leaning and left supporting organization.

As for the small primer cases, I just separate them and load them into separate boxes. I would be more inclined to fire them in places where I might not be able to recover them as easily.

it is living on the left coast as a GUN owner?


CA has been openly going after law-abiding gun owners for the past several years. Between bad gun laws, "sanctuary" state BS, and the constant waste of taxpayer money is what prompted me to move to Idaho.

Burglary and robbery for an amount below $1K is now nothing more than a written citation type offense. Getting caught with a magazine that holds more than 10-rounds will land you in state prison.

I've got a pretty good idea that these small-primer .45's were the doing of CA lawmakers. Never mind that proper ventilation for indoor ranges is a better solution.

When I load them I save them for when I'm going plinking in the woods or somewhere. I do like Ham Gunner does....separate boxes.

I shoot a lot of Bullseye pistol matches, I have loaded and used cases
with small primer pockets with my standard load (178 gr. LSWC with
4.2 grains of Bullseye). There was no noticeable difference.
I am interested in reading the results of any chrono testing,

Update; I reloaded 20 Federal small primed cases with a
200 LSWC over CFE Pistol with CCI small pistol primers.
Also 20 Federal large primed cases with same load and CCI
large pistol primers. I have scrounged up 100+ Blazer 45
ACP cases in both large and small primed. I have
processed 50 of each and am gonna stuff them with
Bullseye and 230 gr. FMJ and CCI primers just as soon as
my bullets arrive from RMR. Since it's raining here and
there's still some roads closed due to forest fires I'm
not sure when I'll be able to test them...

When a Bullseye competitor tells me he sees no noticeable difference, I listen.

Well I reckon the debate is a draw on primer size 'n
where the bullets go huh? Don't make much difference.

Ya know, back in the beginning of the .357Mag it was
produced in small and large primers. Lyman had a special
priming chamber for the large for the 310 tool and a
special shell holder for the E-Z press. Now of course
that was even before my time. But they did exist.
