1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Have to confess that's a new one to me. What's the advantage of the small primer pocket?

    Some of the companies have gone to small primers for 45 ACP. Many people prefer reloading with the large primers. On a Dillon machine, if you were reloading other cartridges that use small primers, then when you went to the 45 ACP, you wouldn't have to change out your primer station. You would save a little time.

    They are a pain in the butt. They are frequently left on the
    ground after a USPSA match. They then get mixed in the
    large pistol primer brass and end up screwing up your loader.

    I can see how that would be a problem having to sort by primer pocket size. Like running into the occasional Berdan primed cases in 9mm.

    It would make changing over from loading say 9mm to 45 much easier not to have to change over the priming system on a Dillon progressive.

    Inspect your brass and you will have no problems.

    ^^^What he said^^^

    Only an idiot would load without inspecting and sorting their brass.

    It's OK until it isn't.

    Have an older accurized 45 with a high barrel? The firing pin hits off center, and right on the edge of the pocket.

    Federal didn't even mark their product that it had the small primer so if you bought a case lot to use and have the brass, you're SOL


    Of course getting anything these days is another matter.
