Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. Thriftiness, ignorance, done on a bet or a dare…? Just likes being able to use a magnet to pick up after a range session? Endless possibilities.

  2. I looked at some Wolf and Tula steel.45 cases, they were reloadable but not by me.. I have 3-4000 pieces of .45 brass. I reload them till the cases split or they get deformed..

  3. They make Boxer-Berdan conversions. Basically pops out the internal ‘anvil’ and widens the primer pocket to fit regular primers. Works on regular brass or steel casings.

    As to steel, yeah, you can reload them, if you have to. Steel is less forgiving than brass, though the crappy steel used by Soviet-era manufacturers can be as ‘soft’ as brass.

  4. Every once in a whole you will see berdan primers floating around. IIRC you can remove the anvil of a boxer primer and press that in. Depriming can be done hydraulically.
    I’ve only ever heard of someone going though the trouble with obscure ammo though.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
