    According to the books you should absolutely never ever, ever, ever, under and circumstances for any reason, ever, ever, ever deprime a live primer. Ever. For any reason whatsoever. Ever.

    I do it all the time. Still have all my body parts in working condition.

    Pretty much the same as my nephew cleaning out the saw at the sawmill.

    Big sign says turn it off before cleaning.

    Old timers know it can be done safely, and have done so for years.

    No one shuts it down, until Wes pokes the stick in, it catches on a tooth, he loses much of his right hand, and some bright boy figures out there was a reason for the sign.

    But, hey, they were able to put his big toe on what was left of the hand so he would have a thumb.

    And, look at the tons of money y’all are saving in primer costs.

    I put engine oil on a bunch and put a bunch in a container of water. I let them all sit for a month. The ones in the water were rusted, but all went off. The ones with a drop of oil also worked. I think they were Federals but I cant remember for sure. A firing pin makes them inert for sure.

    I think theres a little more risk playing with the energy of a running saw mill than a primer in an empty case. Just sayin.

    Your decision.

    Really?

    Ever played with light mainsprings in pistols, or the strain screw in S&W revolvers?

    It takes a hard, sharp application of kinetic energy to reliably touch off primers. That's the whole point.

    a guy can wear a face shield and garden gloves, if he wants, but if you're worried about gently pushing primers out, then ramming them in on a progressive or with a hand primer must induce gluteal cramps from the steady butt-pucker.

    I'm not tossing out good brass because of a crushed sideways primer.

    And yet there are some lunatics so paranoid about "damaging" primers that they must wear rubber gloves when handling primers.
