    Years ago I bartered for some 38 spl. reloads. I came a cross a box that the primers are not set deep enough. They lock up the cylinder on my revolver. i don't reload so should I give them away in the classifieds or?

    I wouldn't pass them on without full disclosure and even then I'd list them for the components only.

    Hang tight. I'm sure one of the resident reloaders will be along shortly.

    If they were mine, I’d pull the bullets and start over. I mess up occasionally when loading, and that’s what I do.

    Just tap the primers home with a hammer. They'll be fine.

    I started to post that I tried tapping them down. I thought I might get to much grief over it

    If you have the ability to reload, pull the bullets and dump the powder. Then you could try carefully reseating the primer.

    edit: I just reread the part about you not being a reloader.

    You guys must have vanilla lives. Get a seater and finish seating the primers. Wear ear plugs just in case and use the OSHA approved safety squint.
