    a slam fire will destroy your weapon? WHAT?



  2. quistan2 on November 14, 2021 at 6:15 pm

    A primer primer ๐Ÿ˜‰



  3. jerry Chimaobi on November 14, 2021 at 6:18 pm

    As well as gunpowder?



  4. jerry Chimaobi on November 14, 2021 at 6:18 pm

    Hi ๐Ÿ˜Š
    I’m in Nigeria, please how can I get W209 primer and where? I mean can I get it online
    Cuz it’s illegal to own a gun here๐Ÿคฆ but I ended up making one for myself ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    The rubber made bin is good but two things:
    1. Some people are concerned of static electricity sparking and setting them off. I don’t see it as much of an issue. Primer detonation is almost exclusively impact only.
    2. Order some desiccant packs and throw a decent size pack in the bin with the primers. Moisture is bad.

    I dont think its necessary to use the milspec primers in ARs. Ive never used them. The free float pin in M1s and M14s have a massive forward impulse, so it makes sense you’d use it in those, but in ARs the free float firing pin is designed to recoil as soon as it touches the primer. Its also recommended that you dont slam the bolt home unless youre at the range. I mean ive done it but its not smart.

    Some in-line muzzleloaders use shotshell 209 primers for ignition, in case it hasnโ€™t been mentioned.

    How is that there are special primers for semi auto rifles? This is weird to me, i think that the only thing that can cause a slam fire is a primer seated uncorrectly. I think there should be something special about semi auto rifle primer….. anyone knows what is it?



  10. Richard Noggin on November 14, 2021 at 6:25 pm

    Wait……. A slam fire will NOT destroy your rifle it will NOT injure or kill you. All a slam fire does it ignite a round as its being loaded into the chamber as the bolt locks the firing pin strikes the primer and sets off the round. Ammosmith do you know Wtf you’re talking about???????



  11. Sir. Ben on November 14, 2021 at 6:25 pm

    Is there any certain temperature you need to store your reloading primers at. I have always been under the impression that as long as they are kept dry, away from any moisture that they were fine as long as they were still in their cardboard containers.



  12. ken berscheit on November 14, 2021 at 6:27 pm

    primers are capable of mass explosion and the last thing I want is 37000 primers going off. I keep no more then 5000 securely packed in the original box in one place . mfg’s only allow 1 or 2 pounds of priming compound at one time on the mfg process room.its that powerful . dont take chances



  13. Marco Oliveira on November 14, 2021 at 6:28 pm

    How about storing primers on small plastic ammo boxes together with silica packs ? (Short up to 1 year , median 1 to 3 years, long term storage over 3 years?) – any advantage and thoughts.



  14. Mezhusevi Z Thou on November 14, 2021 at 6:28 pm

    Where can I got 12 gauge primers?



  15. yetisuncle on November 14, 2021 at 6:28 pm

    i hope someone can answer this stupid question. im just curious about what it takes to accidently detonate a primer? i have always been told that it takes a fast "tap" to detonate one. but i was curious if thats accurate, and if say a slower press would do it? say like during the loading of a metal magazine and you scrape the primer or press it into a protruding part of the magazine? i know its a stupid question, and at my age i should certainly know this. but i was hoping someone could educate my ignorance. thank you in advance.



  16. chicagorandy on November 14, 2021 at 6:28 pm

    And who knew that in less than 10 years ALL primers would be made out of ‘unobtainium’?



  17. jordy king on November 14, 2021 at 6:33 pm

    if only we knew how bad things where gonna get… these are worth their weight in gold any more it seems…



  18. Martin on November 14, 2021 at 6:33 pm

    Primers come in different hardnesses. CCI Primers are too hard for some pistols causing miss fires. Federal primers are softer and completely fixed my light primer strikes and elimi ndated miss fires. Seems not well known? Who would have thought ๐Ÿ˜Ž



  19. B Hewitt on November 14, 2021 at 6:33 pm

    Wish I could find primers to buy



  20. 6.5 Creedy on November 14, 2021 at 6:33 pm

    This is a terrible example of primer differences !!!!



  21. Pauls Country on November 14, 2021 at 6:39 pm

    How could a slam fire kill you? Has it ever happened?



  22. mayhemlikeme on November 14, 2021 at 6:39 pm

    A slam fire will kill you? Really? Please expand and explain how. I’ve had a slam fire, and the gun shot twice rather than once. I wasn’t maimed, I wasn’t injured, I wasn’t killed. I’m still here to type a response your assertion.



  23. PETE BETANCOURT on November 14, 2021 at 6:40 pm

    What is a 209 – 777 primer



  24. eye80west on November 14, 2021 at 6:45 pm

    September 2020.. What is this mythical "primer" you speak of?



  25. 1629 Citizen on November 14, 2021 at 6:45 pm

    I thought this was going to teach me the basics about primers. Exact opposite. Worthless for newbies. Just a few random factoids.



  26. Rajesh on November 14, 2021 at 6:46 pm

    Who can deliver primer in India ?



  27. kain hall on November 14, 2021 at 6:50 pm

    ive had my m1 garand slam fire 3 or 4 rounds off once…..was able to shoot it fine with no problems for about 2 years, now its doing it once in a clip or 2….

    federal 150 grain soft point "power shok" ammo…i wnat to get a reloading set up…but too expensive to start, might have to switch brands of ammo



  28. Mike Morris on November 14, 2021 at 6:51 pm

    you should say when u can find them!! there gold unicorns at the moment!



  29. Sunee Tgi on November 14, 2021 at 6:52 pm

    Teach me please ๐Ÿ™ . How can I contact you

    I understand the associated risk of slam fires in semi or fully auto platforms. However, unless an individual repeatedly drops the bolt on the same cartridge, it’s then that the risk becomes elevated, though still very unlikely.

    I have been loading for auto loaders, both handgun and long guns that shoot bottle neck cartridge’s. Now if we were referring specifically to FA platforms #34’s / #41’s to be well served.

    I’ve conducted multiple tests using a number of different actions and chamberings, to date I have been entirely unsuccessful at inducing a slam fire. Using at least a half dozen different AR15 and AR10 platforms, and I’ve also tested some semi auto’s like the Uzi, Tec9 and a few other semi auto platforms.

    I’ve tested standard primers from CCI , Winchester, Federal and Remington. Manually dropping the bolt 20 times on the same cartridge yeilded nothing more than a dinged up primer, but no slam fires in any of the weapons. Even the Federal primers wouldn’t slam fire, this actually surprised me actually.

    I went on to test magnum primers, they actually did resist denting, in which the dents were significantly more shallow than the standard primers.

    Moving on to #34’s and #41’s, and when comparing them to magnum primers there was no discernible difference in dent depth.

    Over all, Federal primers were the softest and Winchester the hardest with Remington and CCI very similar.

    I once soaked several large rifle primers in water for about a week with no real agitation. I then removed them from the water and let them air dry for about a week. I then seated one in a .308 case (primer only!!!). I went into a dark closet and aimed the rifle at an old rag on the floor and pulled the trigger. Fire shot out of the barrel (24") as if it had been a normal primer. ….just something to think about.



  32. Roger Brown on November 14, 2021 at 6:53 pm

    This isn’t about this video but I was wondering what you thought about 45 super



  33. William Galindo on November 14, 2021 at 6:53 pm

    You forgot to mention that shot shell primers are also used for black powder rifle loads. Usually inserted into the breech of a modern black powder rifle such as a TCC rifle prior to firing thusly avoiding accidental detonation of a charged barrel.



  34. Augusto Carrion on November 14, 2021 at 6:55 pm

    Hello price 1.000 Primers Winchester?



  35. Dennis on November 14, 2021 at 7:00 pm

    A slam fire Kill you ??????? surprise yes, kill you, no. all it does is go off, and of course– you have it pointed in a safe direction !!!!!!! And I use shot gun primers for my black powder in line.



  36. Oregon Patriot on November 14, 2021 at 7:02 pm

    Back when you made this in 2009 I started stocking up on primers, because _(while guns can never be removed)_ the manufacturing of ammo and *primers can be shut off* almost over night.
    Fast forward to 7/2020 and almost all primers are scarce as hens teeth.



  37. jason200912 on November 14, 2021 at 7:02 pm

    can you explain why a primer goes off when struck with force? in other words, what’s going inside thta makes this create a spark versus a percussion cap



  38. Tom McQueen on November 14, 2021 at 7:06 pm

    This is first time I ever heard a slam fire would destroy your firearm or kill you



  39. BB on November 14, 2021 at 7:07 pm

    The fact that was missing was the metal hardness of the primers. I have some remington primers that are so hard that a double strike is needed sometimes. If I wasn’t so cheap I would get rid of them. CCI has a nice primer pocket divot strike on them constantly and that is why I only buy CCI brand. If you buy them compare the divot at the range from time to time with the same rifle. Don’t point your rifle at the ground when you rack the bolt and that will help the slam fire.



  40. JD447mag Size matters on November 14, 2021 at 7:07 pm

    37,000 primers! WOW! Nice stock my friend! You wouldnโ€™t be interested in selling me a thousand pack of small pistol primers would you? I would forever be indebted to you! Trying to find them in these crazy times is just that…. CRAZY! I have been waiting and waiting for even a few to be available to reload my 9mm components that I have ready just canโ€™t for the life of me find any. Have a good one and stay safe and well. Keep the vids coming!



  41. Richbirdhunter 2016 on November 14, 2021 at 7:08 pm

    I could use some new videos

  43. Webmaster Caribou on November 14, 2021 at 7:09 pm

    All you need to tell people is that primers are no longer available and won’t be for years.



  44. Josh Grove on November 14, 2021 at 7:10 pm

    Slam fire will destroy the weapon?



  45. Jeremy Graham on November 14, 2021 at 7:11 pm

    I’m curious if I’m able to buy lead styphnate or is that even legal because I can’t find it anywhere



  46. david galeski on November 14, 2021 at 7:11 pm

    7mm mag do i use mag primer



  47. krrrruptidsoless on November 14, 2021 at 7:12 pm

    Just wanted to step into a time when primers were everywhere. ๐Ÿคท



  48. Robert Jordan on November 14, 2021 at 7:12 pm

    Okay, I have a question. To avoid having dozens of different primers, can you narrow down to an average amount of small pistol, large pistol, small rifle, large rifle, and magnum primers. Since an average person would need a warehouse in order to store/keep every type of primer made.



  49. ahmed alteeb on November 14, 2021 at 7:13 pm
