Here’s a fun fact......Berdan’s were designed by an American and the single more common flash hole was designed by an English man. One would think it would be the other way around.Old Military 5.56 surplus ammo when you could still buy it cheap before they quit selling it and empty brass to the civilian market.
Mean time between failureMark, You can do 20 for answering my question wrong. CTB alignment is "cylinder-to-bore" alignment and has to do with revolvers only. If c-t-b is off, bullets get damaged and fly goofy. We don't need no stinkin' goofy bullets!
The thought of doing pushups makes me tired. I got out of bed this morning ..... does that count?
Here's an engineering acronym that applies to guns (mostly barrels), ammo, and most other mechanical or electronic hardware.
Easy-peasy. Just take an old same size hardened drill bit, the same size as the primer hole (should normally be) or decapper pin size, put it in your decapper pin holder upside down (blunt end out) and try that. It should (if hard enough), push though the center of the double holes, into the crimped on primer and push it out. It's a kinda easy as you go feeling it through. Then take that little "Rocket Ship" looking thingy (de-burring tool) and VERY GENTLY put the pointy end onto the primer pocket edge and SLIGHTLY turn BARELY trimming the pocket burr created from pushing the primer out. I suggest using a hand primer to try and ease a primer in. Might take a couple "trims" to get a tight fit getting that "edge burr" off. Too much and the primer won't stay in, smash the case and recycle it.I hate berdan, will break the crap out of a decapper pin if mixed in with boxers.
