long as they looked ok and havent gotten wet or contaminated they should be fineLoaded a dozen rounds of .357 with some old primers I found while I was looking for .300 Savage ammo for Andrew. If they still work, I have 2000 more small pistol primers. I'll find out tomorrow.
Well, I've officially joined the group of gun owners that baffled me; was going through my ammo can inventory to make room for some more reloads, and found a can with 1100 9 mm 124 grain FMJ reloads I forgot I had
Are his shelves pretty stripped? I'd guess no primers, very little powder, etc?Did some more trading with jpm today. Got me a bunch of 30-30 brass and 300 savage ammo.

Then stopped by Glenn’s in N. Reading and bought the last of the Winchester 150 gr RN bullets and a bag of 300 savage brass. Doubtful I’ll be reloading 300 savage anytime soon but good to have the components if need be.
He had one pound of 2400 at $29 left that I was tempted to buy just because of the SHTF. But aside from that his powder was limited to some 296, WST and some rifle powders I don’t use. No primers.Are his shelves pretty stripped? I'd guess no primers, very little powder, etc?
I was just thinking, as late as I got into reloading, November/December was a lot better than right now, lol!
Like these...I tried a few of the older primers this morning and they all went off correctly so I guess I'm good. They seem to be quite old. The trays aren't plastic. They're cardboard with little wood dividers.
These beauties showed up today. It’s amazing how I can get a package from Slovenia in 3 days but a package from brownells took 3 weeks. These toolhead a are immaculate can’t wait to get them set up.I’m determined to load some precision stuff on the 550. Armanov was a pleasure to deal with as well. I placed an order on Saturday night for one toolhead and 2 rings than decided instead of waiting (from what I’ve read people say usually 2-4 weeks for shipping) and paying extra shipping id just get more so I have them. I emailed them Sunday I beleive and within a few hours they got back to me with updated invoice and even gave me 15% off entire order. Now if my conversion kit and powder die ever get here I can start the journey. Ordered the same time through Dillon should be here early next week.
Congrats on successfully making a time machine to go back in time to buy primers! But you didn’t have to go all the way back to when “primers for the new fangled smokeless powder” showed up in stores.Like these...
..they've run just fine for me, too. Loaded some in 9x19mm the other day.
