Everyone make your run on "safe lite" matches now before they become the next toilet paper.
The problem isn't pulling the dent out of the primer.
The problem is welding up the tiny hole left by the dent puller, and then smoothing off the weld.
I have figured out a way to do this. I've been experimenting lately. I've have recently "reloaded" 12 SPP & re-inserted them into 9mm. & all 12 fired with no issues.
It is time consuming, but doable.
& no special tools needed.
& I didn't use match heads.
Info on the process please. We all may need it if SHTF.
I just don't know how you would have the time to figure this out. I mean with your shovel business going full tilt and all.....
Reshaping the primer cup wouldn’t be a problem. Resetting the anvil could be tricky.
The most dangerous problem would be the primer compound. What chemicals? Are they readily available! Proper mix? How much per primer to get any kind of consistency?
I’m game, let’s do it.
my ols FM improvised weapons says you can use the white portion of strike anywhere matches. Although the manual dates from 1968 not sure if same compound now. I do have primers still on the shelf of the store but pricing is nuts now
I’m thinking there is some formula out there that can be used with easy to acquire components. I just don’t know what it is or what I should be looking for.
I ALWAYS search for lost primers. 1 time I lose one and Wif gets it in the vacuum and it goes off.
She will not let me forget it.
I have a large coffee can of spent primers. Seeing ads for 5000 primers @ $1000, I am considering repriming.
I have ~4 gallons of spent primers if you enterprising folks want to trade for factory primers. We can figure out a ratio.
Get them before the rush!
